Pinterest-Inspired Oatmeal Bake

I’m obsessed with Pinterest. If I could make a living by making and baking things off of Pinterest, I’d do so willingly. As I was roaming around different recipes one day, I stumbled upon an oatmeal bake that I decided to make. It’s easy to make and extremely worth it. The original recipe is called gluten-free oatmeal casserole and can be found here. As you can see, I substituted some of the ingredients (like some of the fruit) with what I had on hand. It was delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Quaker Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup walnut pieces
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • ½ cup of yogurt covered cranberries
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ripe banana

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray a 10-1/2 by 7 inch baking pan with Pam.
  2. In a bowl mix together Quaker Old Fashioned Oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, half of the walnuts, half the strawberries, and half the yogurt covered cranberries.
  3. Add the oat mixture to the pan.
  4. In another bowl whisk milk, egg, butter and vanilla extract and pour into the pan.
  5. Add the left over walnuts, strawberries, and yogurt covered cranberries.
  6. Slice the banana and add banana slices to the top of the oatmeal mix.
  7. Shake the baking pan gently so the milk mixture goes through the oats.
  8. Bake 35 to 45 minutes.

You can enjoy this dish hot or cold!
