Serves: 12 Total Time: 50 minutes
2 cups old fashioned oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup walnut pieces
1 cup strawberries (sliced)
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 cups skim milk
1 large egg
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 ripe banana, peeled, 1/2 inch slices
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, half of the walnuts, half of the strawberries and half the chocolate. (Save the other half of strawberries, walnuts and chocolate for the top of the oatmeal). In another large bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, butter and vanilla extract.
Add the oat mixture to prepared baking dish. Arrange the remaining strawberries, walnuts and chocolate chips on top. Add the banana slices to the top then pour the milk mixture over everything. Gently shake the baking dish to help the milk mixture go throughout the oats. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until the top is nicely golden brown and the milk mixture has set. For an extra tasty top, sprinkle a tablespoon or so of extra brown sugar.
