BAKED OATMEAL WITH FRUIT-recipe from Annie's Eats

Submitted by: UNIBLONDER

Introduction

Three reasons why I love this recipe and you will too: 1. It is quick and easy to prep, 2. Itís healthy, 3. It is very easily adapted to suit whatever fruits are in season and what you have on hand. I have made it so far with the original combination of bananas and blueberries as well as peaches with raspberries, nectarines with blackberries, and most recently with apples and cranberries. The natural sweetness of the fruit as well as a bit of maple syrup is all this really needs to be a tasty and satisfying breakfast, and it reheats well as leftovers on subsequent days. I do add an extra sprinkle of cinnamon sugar to the apple and cranberry version to offset the tartness of the berries. You can also use different types of nuts depending on what you have around or what you prefer. Iím thinking a summer version with cherries, apricots and almonds could be pretty great.
