Baked Oatmeal Casserole & Kitchenaid giveaway from Silk

 

We recently found out that my 3 year old is lactose intolerant. He will NOT touch any sort of lactose free milk except for Silk Pure Almond milk. He’s apparently a lactose snob. Luckily for us it’s pretty delicious stuff.Ironically, Silk contacted me a few weeks ago and said:
“Hey, we have an awesome giveaway going on where you can win a kitchen aide and Silk for a year!”
to which I said:
“I have an almost empty carton of Silk in my fridge, so I need a years supply…and I might be the only person I know without a Kitchenaide, so lets make this happen.”Fact: I do not own a Kitchenaide. It’s so unAmerican of me, I know. So I’m going to digitally cross my fingers and hope for the best. All I have to do is share a favorite recipe I make with Silk.

It just so happens that I have a doosey of a recipe. Baked oatmeal casserole. I found this baby on Pinterest and decided to give it a shot using our Silk almond milk so that everyone at the table could eat it.

 

Baked Oatmeal Casserole:

2 cups rolled oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup walnut pieces
1 cup strawberries
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
2 cups Silk Pure Almond Milk
1 large egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 ripe banana, sliced

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 375°F and spray a 10-1/2 by 7 inch baking dish with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet.
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, half the walnuts, half the strawberries and half the chocolate. (Save the other half of strawberries, walnuts and chocolate for the top of the oatmeal).
In another large bowl, whisk together the Silk almond milk, egg, butter and vanilla extract.

Add the oat mixture to prepared baking dish. Arrange the remaining strawberries, walnuts and chocolate on top. Add the banana slices to the top then pour the almond milk mixture over everything. Gently shake the baking dish to help the liquid mixture go throughout the oats.

Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until the top is nicely golden brown and the almond milk mixture has set. For an extra tasty top, sprinkle a tablespoon or so of extra brown sugar.

There are lots of different kinds of Silk, but I recommend the almond milk. It’s vanilla flavored so baking with it is always yummy.
