  1. Preheat the Oven: Start by heating your oven to 180°C (360°F). Make sure the rack is in the middle position for even baking.
  2. Mix the Wet Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, a pinch of salt, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  3. Prepare the Fruits: Peel and slice the bananas. Core and dice the apple into small pieces. These will add natural sweetness and moisture to your baked oatmeal.
  4. Combine with Dry Ingredients: Add the oat flakes to the wet mixture and stir to combine. Gently fold in the sliced bananas, diced apple, cranberries, and chopped walnuts, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the mixture.
  5. Pour into Baking Pan: Transfer the oatmeal mixture into your prepared baking pan, smoothing the top with the back of a spoon or spatula.
  6. Bake: Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the oatmeal is set.
  7. Cool and Serve: Allow the baked oatmeal to cool slightly in the pan before slicing. This dish can be enjoyed warm or at room temperature.


  • Feel free to customize the fruits and nuts according to your preference or seasonal availability. Pears, peaches, or mixed berries also work wonderfully in this recipe.
  • For a dairy-free version, substitute the milk with your favorite plant-based milk, such as almond or oat milk.
