Baked Oatmeal Delight

of my favorite things about the weekend is making a big homemade breakfast! Over the past few weeks I have been creating variations of {101 Cookbooks} Baked Oatmeal, using different fruits,
nuts, and spices. Not only is it super quick and easy to make, but it is also
healthy, hearty, and you can even make it ahead of time {and reheat} if you need
to. Oh, and it is pretty!

See? I told you it is pretty!



cups old fashioned rolled oats

cup light brown sugar

teaspoon baking powder

teaspoon cinnamon

teaspoon salt

cup sliced strawberries

cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

cups milk

large egg

tablespoons butter, melted

teaspoons vanilla extract

ripe banana, peeled, 1/2-inch slices

Step 1. Preheat
to 375°F and spray an 11x 7 inch baking dish with cooking spray and
place on a baking sheet.
In a
large bowl, mix together the oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, half the strawberries and half the

Step 2: In another large bowl, whisk together the milk,
egg, butter and vanilla extract.


Step 3: Add the oat mixture to prepared baking dish.
Arrange the remaining strawberries and chocolate chips on top. 


Step 4: 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.

Step 5: Bake 35 – 40 minutes or until the top is nicely golden brown and the milk mixture
has set. Sprinkle a tablespoon of extra
brown sugar on top then place back in the oven under the broiler and broil
for 1 minute. 


variations: Replace strawberries with other types of dried or fresh berries. Add
walnuts, almonds, or other nuts. Throw in additional spices such as Chinese
five spice, or nutmeg. Replace chocolate chips with caramel or butterscotch.
Add lemon or orange zest.

    This looked so delicious and pretty I went out right away, bought all the ingredients. The next morning I made it for me and my grandchildren, all three of us love oatmeal. What a big disappointment, none of us liked it. It didn't have that sweet, cinnamon, brown sugar taste that regular cooked oatmeal has. All we could taste was the banana and chocolate. I really don't care for chocolate chips in recipes other than cookies but I knew my grandchildren would like them. It didn't do anything for them, they still didn't like it. A pretty picture of a recipe doesn't necessarily mean its a good recipe.
