This is one of my favorite recipes to make! I've been making it for about 5 years. I can't believe I haven't added it to the blog yet. It's easy, healthy, and tasty. What more can one ask for?? This is adapted from a recipe by Heidi Swanson from her book Super Natural Every Day I have tried to use to use steel cut oats, but have found old fashion rolled oats have the best consistency in the end. This is what I generally use from Bob's Red Mill.
Fresh blueberries are best, but no worries if they are not in season, frozen work just fine too! I have also made this with and without bananas, and with and without walnuts. Only once have I toasted the walnuts, and yes that is better, but I'm usually too lazy so do no toast them. I also use plain almond milk because that is what we have on hand. Any "milk" will do!
Steps, combine the wet works and dry works. Then start to layer everything in. Bake, then enjoy!
I go back and forth on drizzling more maple syrup on the finished product. Try it both ways and decide for yourself! I don't think it's needed, but of course it's extra sweet if you do!
