1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
2 cups 1% low-fat milk
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 large egg
2 tablespoons neutral oil, such as avocado, grapeseed or canola, plus 1 teaspoon for brushing on pan
1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 cup blueberries
7 large strawberries, hulled and cup into eights (about 1 cup)
Additional maple syrup for serving, optional
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium bowl stir together the oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In another bowl whisk together the milk, maple syrup, egg, 2 tablespoons of oil and the vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir to combine. Stir in the blueberries and strawberries.
