When I look at a photo I want to see what something looks like once it's cooked. Many of the casseroles I wait to shoot because I need them to firm up. This wasn't going to get firm but I wanted to show you what it looks like cut into "bars".
It's an excellent recipe and will make it again. It's healthy and very filling. Make up a batch and cut them into what ever size you want for breakfast and heat it up and you are good to go.
Banana's were on sale last week and I picked up blueberries at a great price. Didn't want to go with something sweet and trying to eat healthy.
I adapted the recipe slightly from SkinnyTaste. Gina has a beautiful blog and enjoy visiting it.She figured out how many calories and WW points are in this so make sure to check it out if you make this.
1 cup old fashion rolled oats ( I used steel cut oats)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, divided ( used pecans)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon ( I always use Saigon Cinnamon, love the taste)
Pinch of salt ( I made it a very tiny pinch)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 cup milk ( used 2% milk)
1 large egg, beaten
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2-3 bananas peeled and sliced ( I used 1 1/2 banana's)
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
Heat your oven to 375 degrees
I sprayed my 2 quart baking dish with Pam.
In a large bowl add the oats, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and half of the 1/4 cup of walnuts. Mix well.( Save the other half to sprinkle on top).
In another bowl add the milk, maple syrup, butter that was melted and cooled, vanilla and the beaten egg. Mix well.
Place the sliced banana in the bottom your greased 2 quart dish. Added some blueberries on top of the banana's. I didn't cover the banana's and used about 1/2 a cup.
On top of the blueberries I added the oat mixture which was well combined.
Made sure the blueberries and banana's with the oats and then I poured the liquid carefully over the oat mixture to make sure it was covered.
Added the rest of the nuts and a few berries to the top and into the oven it went for 35-40 mins. The top will be brown and the oats will have set.
If you can, let it sit for 10 minutes.
