Food Share: Week 2

This week’s Food Share is another Pinterest favorite.

Baked Oatmeal with Strawberries, Bananas and Chocolate

IMG_1982This is one of my favorite breakfast “casseroles” ever.  You can make it with pretty much any added ingredients you chose.  Don’t like berries? Change the strawberries to peaches.  Want to make it healthier? Don’t add chocolate.  You get the idea.  I always double this recipe and it lasts for most of the week.

Baked Oatmeal with Strawberries, Bananas and Chocolate

2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

1/3 cup brown sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup of cashews, chopped

1 cup sliced strawberries

1/3 cup chocolate chips

2 cups milk

1 large egg

3 tbsp. butter, melted

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 ripe banana, peeled and cut in 1/2 inch slices

*Please note: If you plan to assemble this the night before and bake it in the morning, put the banana slices on the BOTTOM so they don’t brown.  If you want to freeze it, mix all the fruit in, don’t place it on top.*


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray the inside of a 9×13 baking dish (you can use smaller if you have one, but it should be bigger than 9×9) with Pam.  In a large bowl mix oats, sugar, baking powder, salt, half the cashews, half the strawberries and half the chocolate.  In another bowl, mix together milk, egg, vanilla and butter.

Add the oat mixture to the baking dish, then arrange the remaining strawberries, cashews and chocolate on top.  Add banana slices and pour milk mixture on top.

GENTLY shake the dish to help the milk mixture go through the oats.  Bake 35-40 minutes until the top is golden brown.  Serve warm.
