Baked Oatmeal with Berries & Lentils
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup dry red lentils
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, raspberries or both
1/3 cup shredded coconut (optional)
2 cups whole milk (or half 1% milk & half + half & half cream)
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1 large egg
2 tbsp butter, melted and cooled slightly
2 tsp vanilla
- Preheat the oven to 375°F.
- In an 8-inch square (or similar-sized) baking dish, mix together the oats, lentils, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Scatter with berries.
- In another bowl, whisk together the milk, maple syrup, egg, butter and vanilla. Pour the mixture over the oats, and give it a gentle stir to distribute everything evenly.
- Bake for 40 minutes, or until the top is golden and the oats have set. Serve warm, topped with milk or a splash of cream. Leftovers reheat beautifully.
