2 cups rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2/3 cup nuts, coconut, raisins (any combination works)
1 teaspoon ground flax seed
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1 large egg
1/3 maple syrup (may exchange agave syrup or honey)
1/2 cup fresh or frozen berries
2 cups milk (skim, whole, almond or soy)
2 tablespoons butter
Preheat oven to 375°F. Put butter in the bottom of an 7x11 or similar size deep sided baking dish. Place in the oven until melted, about 5 minutes.
While butter melts, combine oats, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, flax seed and chia seed. Remove the butter from the oven and pour melted butter over oat mixture and stir until coated.
Whisk egg, maple syrup and vanilla together. Pour over the oat mixture and stir to combine. Distribute berries evenly. Gently pour in milk. Bake 35 to 45 minutes until top is browned and edges bubble. Allow to rest 5 minutes. Top with yogurt or warmed milk if desired. Refrigerate leftovers.
