There is one word that describes this dish DELICIOUS and that is no exaggeration! Not only is it delicious it is also healthy and super quick to put together! Oh and did I mention the fruit combinations are endless, you can pair any 2 fruits together and it is sure to be amazing. Next time I may try peaches and blueberries, or maybe apples and raspberries. It makes a pretty big batch so I take the leftovers with me for breakfast during the week. Leave me a comment on this post and let me know which combination you will try!
1 cup Rolled Oats
1/4 cup pecans or walnuts, lightly toasted and chopped
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tbsp. butter, melted and slightly cooled
2 bananas, sliced into 1 inch thick slices
3/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a 2 quart baking dish. In a medium sized bowl mix together the oats, nuts, baking powder, cinnamon, brown sugar and salt. Set aside. In a large measuring cup mix together the egg, milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract and butter. Set aside. To assemble evenly spread the banana slices over the bottom of the baking dish. Sprinkle about 2/3 of the blueberries over the bananas. Evenly sprinkle the oat mixture over the fruit. Pour the liquid mixture evenly over the oats. Top with remaining blueberries. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
