Baked Berries and Oats
Can you smell that? Oh, how I wish that you could! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if computers had scratch ‘n sniff screens? If only…
This morning, I bolted out of bed in anticipation for this delightful and heavenly breakfast treat.  I adapted and healthified this recipe. It left our bellies warm and cozy while we sipped the final drops of coffee in bed. If I wasn’t practicing serving size restraint, I guarantee there wouldn’t be any leftovers in the fridge for tomorrow.  Make the night before and pop it in the oven in the morning…a perfect start to any day!
The Players:
2 cups oats (I use Red Mill thick cut…a little more expensive but well worth it in my opinion)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1-2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 egg
2 cups milk (skim or 1% will do!)
2 teaspoons vanilla (good vanilla as Ina says)
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup sliced strawberries (use any combination of fruits…peaches or/& bananas would be great)
1/4 cup blueberries 
1/4 cup raspberries 
(for a cake-like/fluffier baked oatmeal, add 1/2 teaspoon baking powder to dry ingredients)
How to Play: 
Preheat oven to 375F
Combine dry ingredients in bowl.
In another bowl combine wet ingredients (allow butter to cool before adding to milk and egg mixture).
Coat baking dish (I use a 9X12) with a little butter or spray.
Place a few berries in bottom of dish.
Pour in dry mixture
Cover dry mixture with butter/milk/egg mixture ensuring that the dry ingredients are saturated with the milk.
Top with more berries and sprinkle with a little brown sugar.
Bake at 375F for 25-30 minutes until golden brown.
Serve in a bowl and top with warmed milk.
Enjoy! High-res
