Baked oatmeal with mixed berries, banana, maple syrup and walnuts
Well so much for that rainy weekend we expected, still got some reading in though.
I’ve been wanting to try this recipe, ever since I purchased Super Natural Every Day by Heidi Swanson. I’ve been a longtime fan of Heidi’s blog, 101 Cookbooks, in fact hers was one of the first food blogs I started reading a few years back.
I loved this luscious, fruity and nutty dish, it was gorgeous. I knew I was going to like it, aside from using some of my favourite ingredients, around 10 minutes before it was ready the fragrance from the oven was fantastic; all sweet, cinnamony, reassuring and pudding-like, and for breakfast.
I used strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries and sweetened the oats with maple syrup instead of sugar. I also had mine with a dollop of Greek yoghurt and a bit more maple syrup. It tasted exactly as it should – this was a treat for sure.
