In the Kitchen: Apple-Berry Oatmeal Bake

So I was very ambitious last week and I made a breakfast bake that we could munch on all week.  This baked oatmeal dish makes approx 8 servings....which are very generous portions, mine came to the top of my pie plate.  The recipe came from the Whole Foods website and I only altered it slightly.
Canola oil cooking spray
2 cups frozen mixed berries
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped pecans (I did 1/4 cup pecans and 1/4 walnuts)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup nonfat vanilla yogurt
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk

Preheat oven to 375*.  Oil a 9 inch pie pan with cooking spray; set aside.  In a large bowl, stir together berries, oats, nuts, baking powder, salt, apple.  In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, yogurt, syrup, vanilla, and eggs; stir into oak mixture.  Transfer to prepared pan and bake until firm and golden brown on top, about 50 minutes.  Cut into slices and serve.

I prefer mine cold but you can heat it up in the morning if you wish.
