Baked Oatmeal (Organic Valley)

Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats (not quick oats)
  • 1⁄2 cup toasted and chopped walnut pieces
  • 1⁄3 cup natural cane sugar or maple syrup, plus more for serving
  • 1 teaspoon aluminum free baking powder
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon fine-grain sea salt
  • 2 cups Organic Valley Omega-3 Milk
  • 1 large Organic Valley egg
  • 3 tablespoons Organic Valley unsalted butter, slightly melted
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 ripe bananas, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 1⁄2 cups huckleberries, blueberries, or mixed berries (great with late summer raspberries!)

MAKE IT

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F with a rack in the top third of the oven. Generously butter the inside of an 8-inch square baking dish.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the oats, half the walnuts, the sugar if using, the baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, if using, the milk, egg, half of the butter, and the vanilla.
  4. Arrange the bananas in a single layer in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle two-thirds of the berries over the top. Cover the fruit with the oat mixture. Slowly drizzle the milk mixture over the oats. Gently give the baking dish a couple thwacks on the countertop to make sure the milk moves through the oats. Scatter the remaining berries and remaining walnuts across the top.
  5. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, until the top is nicely golden and the oat mixture has set. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. Drizzle the remaining melted butter on the top and serve. Sprinkle with a bit more sugar or drizzle with maple syrup if you want it a bit sweeter. We added milk to our bowls of oatmeal too.
