How to cook baked oatmeal

Preheat the oven to 190 degrees. Thoroughly grease a small baking dish with butter. Melt the butter in the microwave or in a water bath.

Peel the walnuts from their shells and chop them. Wash the strawberries, remove the stems, and cut the berries into slices. Peel the banana and cut it into thin slices.

Pour the oatmeal into a large bowl, add the orange zest, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.

Also add half of the strawberries, half of the chopped walnuts, and half of the grated chocolate. Mix the oatmeal ingredients and put everything in the baking dish.

Smooth the mixture a little. Top with the rest of the strawberries, nuts and chocolate, and banana slices.

In another deep bowl, beat the egg and milk. Then add the butter and vanilla extract. Mix the ingredients thoroughly again and pour into the baking dish.

Stir in the ingredients for the baked oatmeal. Shake the baking dish a little to ensure that the liquid is better absorbed into the cereal.

Bake the oatmeal for about 35 minutes. A golden brown crust should form on the dish.

To make it especially tasty and crispy, sprinkle sugar evenly after baking and then bake for another 20-30 seconds.
