And this is one of my favorites

Baked oatmeal from Heidi Swanson’s Super Natural Every Day.

I made it for the first time a couple of years ago.  The morning after her book came in the mail, and many times since, varying only the fruit de jour

So the other day, as blueberries were calling my name, and I couldn't help but have a hankering

Fruit covers the bottom, topped next with a milk-soaked layer of oats, egg, vanilla, and more fruit.  Toasted nuts add the finishing touches

It’s wholesome but not so wholesome that it is caught trying to be

Plus, it's different enough to feel like a special occasion no matter what day of the week you happen to indulge

Baked Oatmeal

Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup walnuts (or pecans), toasted and chopped
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp fine-grain salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • cup maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1 egg (large or XL)
  • 1 ½ Tbsp butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 bananas, sliced into ½" pieces
  • 1 ½ cup blueberries (or any berry or mix)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375° F
  • Butter the inside of a square 8" baking dish. In a bowl, combine the oats, half of the walnuts, the baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, the milk, egg, butter, and the vanilla.
  • Spread a single layer of bananas across the bottom of the buttered baking dish. Sprinkle about two-thirds of the berries on top.
  • Cover all that with the oat mixture and then drizzle the milk mixture over the oats. Scatter the remaining berries and walnuts over the top. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, until the top is golden and the oats are set.
  • Let cool for a few minutes.
  • (A small drizzle of maple syrup or honey just before you eat is never wrong)
