Baked Blueberry Oatmeal

div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;"div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;"I've wanted to make this recipe for years, but never had the right ingredients at the right time until yesterday. I'm not an oatmeal person, but this disguised it enough for me to enjoy it. Plus blueberries make everything better! This dish is picky toddler approved. It's very filling (a little goes a long way) and makes enough to serve a crowd, so we'll be eating this for breakfast all week.br /br //diva href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/amyisaacson/9039881266/" title="Baked Blueberry Oatmeal by amyisaacson, on Flickr"img alt="Baked Blueberry Oatmeal" height="500" src="http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7454/9039881266_56dbcf74af.jpg" width="500" / /abr /bBaked Blueberry Oatmeal/bbr /Adapted from a href="http://www.amazon.com/Super-Natural-Every-Day-Well-Loved/dp/1580082777"Super Natural Everyday/abr /br /2 cups rolled oatsbr /1/2 cup walnut pieces or sliced almonds , toasted and choppedbr /1/3 cup sugarbr /1 teaspoon baking powderbr /1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamonbr /Scant 1/2 teaspoon fine-grain sea saltbr /2 cups ml milkbr /1 large eggbr /3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightlybr /2 teaspoons pure vanilla extractbr /2 ripe bananas, cut into 1/2-inch piecesbr /1 1/2 cups blueberries or mixed berriesbr /br /1.
