12-16 ounces fresh berries other fresh fruit (chopped apples or peaches would be very good)
2 cups old-fashioned or hearty rolled oats (not instant)
½ to 1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 ½ cups milk
¼ cup maple syrup
2 to 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
4 tablespoons melted butter, cooled slightly (or use ¼ cup olive oil)
1 egg (beaten)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8-inch or similar size baking dish with butter.
Mix oats with salt and cinnamon in small bowl and set aside. In large mixing cup or a bowl, stir together the milk, maple syrup, beaten egg, and melted butter.
Put berries in pan and distribute evenly so they cover the bottom of pan. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the berries. Pour oat mixture over berries – evenly distribute. Pour milk mixture over evenly and do not mix. Bake for 30-35 minutes until top is golden.
|I didn't let my melted butter cool enough and it coagulated when it got mixed in with the cold milk --no problem, still turned out great!|
