Now let’s get down to the good stuff!
2 cups rolled oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup walnut pieces
1 cup raspberries (any berries work here)
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
2 cups milk
1 large egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 ripe banana, peeled, 1/2-inch slices
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and generously spray the inside of a 10 1/2 x 7 inch baking dish with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet.
2. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, half the walnuts, half the strawberries, and half of the chocolate. (You will want to save the other half of the berries, walnuts, and chocolate for the topping.)
3. In another large bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, butter and vanilla extract.
4. Add the oat mixture to prepared baking dish. Arrange the remaining strawberries, walnuts, and chocolate on top.
5. 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 through the oats.
6. Bake 35-40 minutes or until the top is nicely golden brown and the milk mixture has set.
*For an extra sweet taste, sprinkle a tablespoon or two of brown sugar on top.
