I originally chose to try this recipe because of its simplicity. I needed something I could throw in the oven on an early, busy morning. The idea of a single bowl appealed to this not-a-morning person.
I didn’t realize, however, that it had a leavener in it until I was making it. Half asleep, I trusted Sally and added it in.
And I’m so glad I did! Six thumbs up from me and my guests!
This recipe came out perfect as written. The texture is pleasing, the flavors are delicious, and as a bonus, it’s sweetened with just maple syrup, applesauce, and berries. No added sugar!
TIP: Sally says you can substitute mashed banana for the applesauce, and I definitely plan to try it!
One-Bowl Baked Granola with Berries and Maple Syrup
(Original recipe: Sally’s Baking Addiction)
1-3/4 C milk (I used unsweetened oat milk)
2 large eggs
1/2 C maple syrup
1/4 C butter, melted and slightly cooled
1/4 C unsweetened applesauce (or mashed banana)
3 C old-fashioned whole rolled oats
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1-1/2 C mixed berries, fresh or frozen (do not thaw)
Optional: 1/2 C chopped walnuts or pecans
Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a 9×9 or 11×7 inch baking dish with nonstick spray or butter.
In a large bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, maple syrup, butter, applesauce, baking powder, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt until well combined.
Add in the oats, berries, and nuts if using. Fold together until everything is well coated.
Pour the mixture into prepared baking pan. Bake for 35 minutes or until the center appears almost set.
Cool for 5 minutes before serving. If desired, top with cream, yogurt, or a drizzle of maple syrup.
Cover leftovers tightly and refrigerate for up to 1 week.
