I found this recipe on Pinterest a few weeks ago and am so glad I finally tested it out! It is delicious and would be perfect for a brunch any time of year. I made a few modifications when I baked it today. The one modification I plan to make in the future and is included below is to use peaches or blueberries instead of bananas. They get kind of brown and don't last quite as long.
Serves 10 (I calculated this is ~6 WW PointsPlus)
2 C Old fashioned rolled oats
1/3 C Light brown sugar
1 tsp Baking powder
1 TBSP Allspice
1 TBSP Cinnamon
1/2 C Walnut pieces, chopped (separated)
1 C sliced strawberries (separated)
1/3 C dark chocolate chips (separated)
2 C Skim Milk, organic
1 Large egg
3 TBSP butter, melted
2 TSP vanilla extract
1/2 C Peaches, chopped or blueberries
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Spray the inside of a 10.5 x 7 inch baking dish with olive oil (MISTO!).
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, sugar, baking powder, spices, half the walnuts, half the strawberries, half the chocolate chips.
In another bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, butter, and vanilla.
Add the oat mixture to the baking dish. Arrange remaining walnuts, strawberries, and chocolate chips on top. Sprinkle peaches or blueberries on top. Pour the milk mixture over everything. Gently shake the baking dish to help the mixture go through the oats.
Bake for 40 minutes or until browned and cooked through.
