Ever have a recipe the family LOVES... then you forget about it just to never make it again?
Found this hidden gem in the breakfast folder from 4 years ago when we started on this journey.
At 3pm kids we’re all over me asking for it, hubs walked in the door from work diving in.
I swapped fresh fruits for frozen to save $
Oatmeal Fruit Bake
What you need:
3 cups old fashioned oats
¾ cup brown sugar
1 ½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 ½ cups milk
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
4 tbsp unsalted butter or coconut oil, melted
2 cups berries (I used frozen - sliced for larger berries)
What you gotta do:
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Spray a 2 ½ quart baking dish with coconut oil spray.
Combine all dry ingredients.
Spread ½ oat mixture in the baking dish, top with ½ berries, then top with the remaining oat mixture.
Whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla, and melted butter. Pour over oat mixture.
Top the oats with remaining berries.
Bake uncovered for about 35-45 min's, until oats are tender / mixture is set.
Serve immediately or cool, then cover and refrigerate for later.
