• 1 and 3/4 cups (420ml) milk(dairy or nondairy)
• 2 large eggs*
• 1/2 cup (120ml) pure maple syrup*
• 1/4 cup (60g) unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled*
• 1/4 cup (60g) unsweetened applesauce or mashed banana
• 3 cups (240g) old-fashioned whole oats*
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1 and 1/2 cups mixed berries, fresh or frozen (do not thaw)*
• optional for topping: 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1. Adjust the oven rack to the lower third position and preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Spray a 9×9 inch or 11×7 inch baking pan with nonstick spray. Any similar size or shape pan works, though 8×8 inch would be too small. See recipe note for 9×13 inch pan.
2. Whisk all of the ingredients together in 1 large bowl. Pour into prepared baking pan. Top with nuts, if desired. (Or stir into the oatmeal.) Bake for 35 minutes or until the center appears *almost* set, which gives us a soft oatmeal as pictured above. For drier and more solid baked oatmeal, bake until center has set.
