2 cups rolled old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 cups almond milk
1 large egg (or 1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed)
2 Tablespoons coconut oil, melted
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 ripe bananas (1 mashed and 1 sliced)
1 1/2 cups fresh quartered strawberries (divided)
1/4 cup chocolate chips (divided)
additional strawberries, bananas and milk for serving
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Spray an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Add in milk, maple syrup, egg, coconut oil, vanilla and mashed banana. Stir well to combine.
Gently fold in 1 cup strawberries, 1/2 of your banana slices and 1/8 cup of chocolate chips.
Carefully pour oatmeal mixture into the prepared baking dish.
Scatter the remaining strawberries, banana slices and chocolate chips on top.
Bake for 50-60 minutes or until the middle of the bake is set (it might still be slightly wet from the strawberries but that’s okay). The top/edges will be golden. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. This will allow the baked oatmeal to set a bit more. Portion and serve. Top with additional fresh strawberries, banana and a splash of milk.
