Mariah is one of my most favorite people in the world and she happens to be not only my cousin, but an amazing cook! Every time we are together, it is like Iron Chef meets Chopped. Only with less competition, A LOT more wine and laughter.
Mariah made this for me one weekend a few years ago and it is a go-to for friends who are vegan & or gluten free. The recipe is easily modified to suit your needs. You can use Fresh OR Frozen Berries. The more berries you add, the wetter it gets (thats what she said).
2 Cups Rolled Oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg (Personally, I prefer freshly grated)
1/2 tsp salt
Mixed berries of your choice either frozen or fresh.
One and ahalf cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix dry ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside.
Place half of the berries on top of the half dry mix.
Mix it all together and pour half of it into a buttered baking dish
Then pour the rest of the dry mix.
Sprinkle the top with remaining berries.
Mix all wet ingredients and pour over your dry mix in the baking pan
Pat down what isn’t covered by the wet ingredients some dry ingredients peeking out is OK this will become crunchy and delicious!
Bake in 350° oven for 40 minutes
