Baked Oatmeal with Fruit

This is one of my favorite breakfast recipes.  It is healthy, delicious and too easy for words!  It is kid-friendly and super versitile allowing you to get creative with different fruit combinations.  I've made it with blueberries and bananas and this version is with peaches and blackberries.  You will not be disappointed with this gem!

Baked Oatmeal with Fruit
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
¼ cup chopped walnuts or pecans, lightly toasted, divided
½ tsp. baking powder
¾ tsp. ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
¼ cup maple syrup
1 cup milk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Sliced peaches (fresh or frozen), enough for a single layer to cover the baking dish
1 1/2 cup blackberries (fresh or frozen), divided

Preheat the oven to 375˚ F.  Lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish.  

In a medium bowl, combine the rolled oats, half of the nuts, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.  Stir with a fork to combine.  

 In a liquid measuring cup, combine the maple syrup, milk, egg, butter, and vanilla.  

Spread the sliced peaches 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.  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 before serving.
