Banana & Mixed Berries Baked Oatmeal

I got this idea from but I tweaked it and made it my own.... Turned out so good, and healthy!!  I used mixed berries (blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries)... If you don't like the tartness, tweak it to just blueberries, or you could even just use the bananas, or add strawberries, or whatever you like.... You could make this and put the portions in baggies to have for breakfast on the go for the week.  This would also be great with some Vanilla Greek Yogurt - YUM!

2 small ripe bananas - sliced into 1/2" pieces
3/4 cup Berries (I used frozen blueberries, blackberries, raspberries)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup quick oats (dry, uncooked)
pinch salt
1 egg
2-3tbsp honey (or agave)
1/4 cup chopped pecans
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 375.  Spray 8x8 dish with nonstick spray.  Place banana slices in bottom of dish in a single layer.  Sprinkle with half the berries, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, & 1tbsp honey -- cover dish with foil, bake 15 min or until bananas are softened. 
In medium bowl combine oats, half of nuts, baking powder, cinnamon, & salt.  Stir together.  In another bowl, whisk together honey, milk, egg, & vanilla extract.  Remove bananas from the oven.  Pour the oat mixture over the bananas and berries.  Pour the milk mixture evenly over the oats.  Sprinkle the remaining berries & walnuts over the top.  Bake for about 30-40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and oatmeal has set.  Serve warm.
Makes 6 servings.
