I took a recipe from So How’s It Taste and altered it so it was vegan. It was a great start to my morning and kept me full! I mixed everything in a bowl the night before so it would be ready to go in the oven while I was getting ready for the day!
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, divided
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup 100% pure maple syrup
1 cup milk (I used almond)
2 tbsp. vegan butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2-3 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen, divided
1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
2. Lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish. In a medium bowl, mix the oats, half of the walnuts, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Stir to combine. In a liquid measuring cup, combine the syrup, almond milk, butter, and vanilla.
3. Spread the sliced bananas in a single layer over the bottom of the baking dish. Top with half of the berries. Sprinkle the dry oat mixture over the fruit in an even layer. Pour the liquid ingredients evenly over the oats.
4. Sprinkle the remaining nuts and berries over the top. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the top, is browned and the oats have set. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
