This no-fuss baked oatmeal comes together quickly and allows for endless variations to make it your own. Try substituting different berries or nuts or use natural cane sugar in place of the maple syrup. Any leftovers reheat nicely the next day.

Ingredients:

  • Unsalted butter for greasing, plus 3 Tbs., melted and cooled
      slightly
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup walnut pieces, toasted and chopped
  • 1 tsp. aluminum-free baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • Scant 1/2 tsp. fine-grain sea salt
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup, plus more for serving
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 large ripe bananas, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries, huckleberries or mixed berries

Directions:

Preheat an oven to 375°F. Generously butter an 8-inch square baking dish.

In a bowl, stir together the oats, 1/4 cup of the walnuts, the baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the 1/3 cup maple syrup, the milk, egg, half of the melted butter and the vanilla.

Arrange the banana slices in a single layer in the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle 1 cup of the berries on top. Cover the fruit with the oat mixture, then slowly drizzle the milk mixture over the oats. Gently tap the baking dish on the countertop to make sure the milk is evenly distributed through the oats. Scatter the remaining 1/2 cup berries and 1/4 cup walnuts on top.

Bake until the top is golden and the oat mixture has set, 40 to 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. Drizzle the remaining melted butter on top of the baked oatmeal and serve with maple syrup. Serves 6 generously, or 12 as part of a larger brunch spread.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best oatmeal recipe ever I do not normally like oatmeal because of the mushy texture and bland taste. I've added all sorts of things to my oatmeal and still don't really care for it. But this recipe....is the best! It is so good and tasty and the texture is perfect, almost like a crisp. This is going to be a staple recipe in my house!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow & amazing! I have been looking for a way to incorporate rolled oats into my family’s diet because I’ve never enjoyed oatmeal cooked stove-top. This is an amazing and tasty option that is delicious and appropriate across seasons. The variety of flavors harmonize well: fruit, nuts, maple syrup, and butter! Yummm! And, what I appreciate most is that the oats are chewy and nutty rather than mushy. Fabulous! My one caution is to be sure to use _ripe_ bananas so that they lend natural sweetness to the dish when they caramelize. (Unripe bananas do not caramelize or sweeten the same way.) As a matter of fact, as when making banana bread, the more ripe the banana the better for this dish. Just brilliantly done, W-S!!!
