Baked Oatmeal with Mixed Berries (DF, GF)

I think this is DELICIOUS !!!!    The almonds give it a nice crunch !!!  Everyone liked the flavor and mixture of spices.
This is a very filling breakfast !!!  It will keep you from being hungry for hours !!!!

The batter will be a little on the "soupy" side, but it will firm up when baking.  It came out the perfect consistency - I did not need to add any additional milk when eating it the next day - it was moist but not "runny".

Adapted from this recipe. 

10 large medjool dates
1 cup unsweetened applesauce 
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cardamom
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1 Tbsp Ground Flaxseed 
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 and 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk 
2 cups frozen mixed berries, thawed (with 1/2 cup of juice)
1 large banana, sliced
1 large apple, sliced or chunked

Blend the dates and applesauce in a blender or food processor until smooth.

Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl.    

Mix the wet ingredients (INCLUDING blended dates) in another bowl. 

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until the dry ingredients are moistened.  Mix in berries, apple and banana and stir until combined.

Pour into casserole dish bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until top is golden brown.

My favorite food processor is the  KitchenAid  7-Cup Food Processor

For blenders, I use both the  Vitamix Blender and Ninja Master Prep Professional Blender

For the Lord is good.  His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation. 
Psalm 100:5 (NCV)
