1/2c.Toasted nuts, choppedWalnuts or pecans work great
2Very ripe bananas (black, if possible)
1 3/4c.MilkAny milk you like
1/4 c.Pure maple syrup
1tsp.Grated orange zest
Heat oven to 325 degrees; butter (or use vegetable spray) an 8X8 glass pan (if using a metal pan, set the oven to 350 degrees).
In a large bowl, toss in bananas and mash with a fork. Add milk, maple syrup, vanilla and orange zest; whisk to combine. Add oats, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice, salt and nuts; mix lightly to combine.
Transfer mixture to baking dish and bake 30-35 minutes or until top is browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool 10-15 minutes before serving.
Serve with a drizzle of fresh orange juice and pure maple syrup, along with any fresh fruit or nuts you desire. Store leftovers in the fridge - when ready to enjoy again, heat in microwave or a low-temperature oven.
Note: if you decide to prep the night before, simply separate the dry and wet ingredients in different bowls and refrigerate the wet ingredients (covered) until the next morning. Combine in the morning and pop in the oven :)
