Here is a fun baked oatmeal recipe using that wonderful strawberry rhubarb fruit combo. Eating this is almost like eating dessert for breakfast, but in a totally socially acceptable way. (Not that brownies for breakfast aren't socially acceptable, but, well, you know...) I really enjoyed this with yogurt - hearty grains, yummy fruit, creamy yogurt - it's a great way to start the day.
Start by chopping up the strawberries and slicing the rhubarb. I used some strawberries that I had frozen earlier in the season, and they worked well. Super fresh would also be good.
Place the fruit in a bowl and add the honey.
and the cornstarch.
Stir well to coat all the fruit. Slice the banana and lay the slices in the bottom of a 9-inch baking dish. Spoon the strawberry/rhubarb mixture over the bananas.
Now in another small bowl, combine the oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, egg, honey, milk
Stir well to combine, then carefully spread over the fruit mixture.
