On a rainy Sunday, with my family still asleep upstairs, I found nirvana! Seriously, this slice of delish was whipped up on a whim just before I was about to head out on a 2 hour morning walk with a great friend. I saw the Lara’s Wheat Free oats sitting on my kitchen counter, and thought – let’s try this. I have played with other recipes before, and sometimes they end up being too dry or too wet, and I end up throwing them out – so you haven’t seen them here. But this one…perfection.
I see this one rounding out a Mother’s Day brunch menu (yes, I know that as mothers, we are celebrated and should not be in the kitchen…but that’s the beauty of my brunch menu – it’s all make-ahead easy, pretty and totally delish (oh, and healthy!). Let’s start here:
What you need:
- 2 cups Lara’s Wheat Free Rolled Oats
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp of salt
- 1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans or almonds
- 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
- 1 large banana, peeled and cut into think slices
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup organic maple syrup
- 2 cups coconut milk or almond milk (can substitute cow’s milk if you like)
What you do:
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch square baking dish with coconut oil.
- In a large bowl, mix together the wheat free oats, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and pecans or almonds. Pour into the baking dish. Layer the berries and sliced bananas over the top of the oats, spreading evenly.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, maple syrup, and milk. Mix until well combined. Slowly pour over the oats. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the top looks crispy.
