Iâ€™ve totally revamped my original Baked Oatmeal recipe to make it healthier. Itâ€™s just as delicious with a crispy top and custardy filling, but this time it has less than half the butter, half the sugar, and more fruit!
Time: 15 minutes prep, 30-35 minutes in the oven
3 cups of plain oats (not instant-oats, or steel cut, those won’t work)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder
100g butter (3.5oz) melted
2 cups milk
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup blueberries (if theyâ€™re frozen, defrost them first)
2 ripe bananas, diced into small chunks
1. Preheat oven to 190C (375ËšF).
2. Put all the ingredients except the fruit into a mixing bowl and stir together until itâ€™s mixed.
3. Add the fruit and gently stir it in. It will look VERY soupy. This is fine, the oats will soak up the liquid.
4. Grease a 13×9 pan or baking dish. Pour the mixture into the pan and bake for 30 minutes or until browned on the top, and if feels firm to the touch. If youâ€™re using a smaller pan thatâ€™s square and deep, it can take up to 45 minutes.
