SRC: Baked Blueberry Banana Oatmeal

/

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Had I realized that we would be posting today, I would've chosen a recipe fitting for the day, but I didn't even think of it.

Instead I specifically searched for a recipe including blueberries because I had bought too many of them the week before. I knew I could easily add them into the fruit salad I have every week, but I wanted to do something different with them.

For this month's Secret Recipe Club, I was assigned to Tasty Gardener which is written by Heather. She has a lot of really delicious looking recipes on her site and a ton of gardening tips which are really quite peaceful to look at.

I finally decided to make her baked blueberry banana oatmeal because I had all of the ingredients on hand.

Ingredients:
    • 2 very ripe medium bananas, mashed
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 3/4 tsp. vanilla
    • 3/4 tsp. baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 2 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
    • 2 cups milk
    • 1 pint fresh blueberries 
Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 375 and spray an 8x8 baking dish with non-sticking cooking spray.
2. Whisk together the banana, eggs, sugar, vanilla, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
3. Add the oats and milk and stir until fully combined. The mixture will be very liquidy.
4. Stir in the blueberries then gently pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish.
5. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Serve warm, or refrigerate and serve later on.



Personally, I prefer this after it has sat in the refrigerator overnight and then I've heated up a serving in the microwave. Straight from the oven it is too runny for my liking, but after sitting overnight, it takes on the perfect creamy denseness that you want from a baked oatmeal.
