Baked Berry and Banana Oatmeal

A while ago I shared the recipe for my first go at baked oatmeal.  It was delicious.  And still is.  But the family has decided that we like this one, from Heidi Swanson, even better.

3 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup walnuts or almonds, toasted and chopped
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 cups milk
1 large egg
2 tsp pur vanilla extract
2 ripe bananas, cut into 1/2" slices
1 1/2 cups berries
maple syrup, for drizzling

Preheat oven to 375.  Butter and 8-inch square baking dish.

COmbine the oats, half the nuts, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl.  In another bowl, whisk the milk, egg, half the butter, and vanilla.

Arrange bananas in a single layer on the bottom of the coated baking dish.  Sprinkle with two-thirds of the berries, then cover with the oat mixture.  Slowly drizzle milk mixture over the oats.  Gently tap dish on a work surface to distribute liquid.  Scatter remaining berries and nuts across the top.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until the top is nicely golden and the oat mixture has set.  Let cool slightly.  drizzle with remaining melted butter and maple syrup.


  1. We loved this too! We used peaches instead of strawberries, brown sugar instead of white, and pecans and almonds for nuts. And I used soy milk and Andrew didn't notice! The 9x9 pan fed 4 adults and 3 littles with two pieces left over (that I ate after our guests left). :)
