I found this recipe from a fellow foodie blogger 🙂 Jessica cracks me up!! She’s got some great recipes too! www.howsweeteast.com. I’m going to make this for me and my daugther tomorrow! Can’t wait! Thanks Jessica!
2 cups old fashioned oats
1/3 cup loosely packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 large egg
1 cup Skim milk
1/4 cup half and half
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 medium ripe banana, mashed
3/4 cup chopped strawberries (about 4 large berries)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a baking dish with nonstick spray – I used a 10×7 dish, but an 8×8, 9×9, round cake pan or another size close to that will work too.
In a large bowl, combine oats, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon, mixing until combine.
Measure out the cup of milk, then whisk in egg and vanilla extract. Add half and half to the milk mixture, then stir it into the dry oats.
Mash the bananas and melted butter, then chopped strawberries, then scoop the batter into the baking dish.
Bake for 30-33 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the top is set.
Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Top with fresh strawberries and bananas if wanted.
Note: If served immediately, squares may not hold together perfectly. If they are left to cool, they should hold together fine and be able to be eaten with your hands.
