Oatmeal Casserole

This is a more "adult" version of my other baked oatmeals. Super yummy and much more substantial.

2 cups oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup berries (blueberries or raspberries)
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
2 cups (soy) milk
1 large egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 ripe banana, sliced

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease baking dish. (I used a deep 9x8.)

Melt butter in microwave. Meanwhile, mix together oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, half the almonds, half the berries, and half the chocolate chips. Spread this mixture in the baking dish.

Sprinkle the remaining nuts, berries, and chocolate, as well as the banana slices, on top.

Now whisk together the milk, egg, butter, and vanilla. Pour this mixture over everything. Gently shake the baking dish to make sure the milk mixture has gone through.

Bake 35-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the milk mixture has set.

If I have labeled a recipe as GlutenFree or Dairy Free but it appears to have those ingredients in it... that means the recipe is still delicious with substitutes/replacements. Ex: soy milk, lactose-free cheese, Bragg's liquid aminos (for soy sauce), all-purpose gluten free flour (Better Batter is my favorite), etc. Please check your individual ingredients to be sure they are GF or DF, if that is what you need.
