Baked Blueberry-Banana Oatmeal

Submitted by: 1TRULYBLESSED

Introduction

Original recipe from "Super Natural Every Day: Well-Loved Recipes From My Natural Foods Kitchen" by Heidi Swanson. I made a number of modifications to reduce carbs and fat and increase protein. If you're okay with higher carbs, I recommend using the 2 bananas called for in the original recipe.

Ingredients

    2 c. rolled (not instant) oats
    1/2 c. walnuts, toasted and chopped
    1 scoop Pure Protein vanilla cream protein powder
    1 tsp. baking powder
    2 tsp. ground cinnamon
    2 c. milk (I used skim)
    1 large egg
    1.5 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
    1 tsp. vanilla extract
    1 ripe medium bananas, sliced
    1.5 c. fresh or frozen berries (I used blueberries)

Tips

To toast walnuts, heat in a small non-stick skillet, shaking frequently, until fragrant. Watch carefully, as they can burn easily!


Directions

Preheat oven to 375F with rack in top third of oven. Spray an 8"x8" baking pan with olive oil or other non-stick spray.

In a medium bowl, mix together oats, half the walnuts, protein powder, baking powder and cinnamon. In another medium bowl, whisk together milk, egg, butter and vanilla.

Arrange banana slices in a single layer in bottom of prepared baking dish. Sprinkle two-thirds of berries over top. Cover fruit with oat mixture. Slowly drizzle milk mixture over oats. Gently give baking dish a few thwacks on countertop to move milk through oats. Scatter remaining berries and walnuts on top.

Bake 35-45 minutes, until top is golden and oats have set.

Serve with a drizzle of maple syrup, if desired.

Serving Size: Makes 6 generous servings
