Baked Oatmeal - Steel Cut

READY IN: 55mins
SERVES: 8-12




  • Measure the 2 cups of steel cut oats into a container and cover with water. Place them in the fridge to soak overnight and soften a bit (I have let them soak for a day or two before and it doesn't change anything). SHORT ON TIME - you can use 2 cups old fashioned oats instead for an even swap.
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F with a rack in the top third of the oven. Spray a 9X13 pan with cooking spray. You can also use a 8-inch square pan if you prefer.
  • Drain the water off the oats and let them sit in a colander for a bit to get all the water off.
  • Arrange the bananas in a single layer in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle two-thirds of the berries over the top.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together the oats, half the walnuts, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Cover the fruit with the oat mixture.
  • In the same mixing bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, milk, egg, coconut oil, and the vanilla.
  • Slowly drizzle the milk mixture over the oats. Gently give the baking dish a couple thwacks on the countertop to make sure the milk moves through the oats. Scatter the remaining berries and remaining walnuts across the top.
  • Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, until the top is nicely golden and the oat mixture has set. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. Drizzle with maple syrup if you want it a bit sweeter before serving. Serve with vanilla or honey yogurt as a topping.
