I’ve been trying to switch up my usual breakfast of toast with banana and peanut butter, so when I had a second snow day (this week!) on Tuesday, I decided to make this oatmeal bake I had seen on Instagram. It was super easy and made 6 servings, so breakfast for the week is ready! Each morning I just heated a slice and poured a tablespoon of maple syrup on top…delicious! And there are so many ways you can mix this up; I’m picturing peanut butter and banana, blueberries and strawberries…yum!
Berry Oatmeal Bake
Adapted from: Broke and Bougie
- 2 cups old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup 100% pure maple syrup (the good stuff, not Aunt Jemima’s corn syrupy concoction!)
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup raspberries (I used frozen and just thawed them in the microwave)
- 1 cup walnuts, chopped
- 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 banana, cut into slices
1.) Preheat oven to 350 F. In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, syrup, cinnamon, baking powder, walnuts, and 1/2 cup raspberries.
2.) In a separate bowl, mix together the egg, milk, and vanilla extract.
3.) Spray a glass baking dish or brownie pan with cooking spray and spread the oat mixture evenly. Pour the egg mixture over the top and shake a little to settle it evenly. Top with remaining raspberries, banana slices, and a little cinnamon and bake for 35-40 minutes. Serve each slice warm with a tablespoon of maple syrup, if desired, and enjoy!
