Instructions
1. Heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and generously spray the inside of a 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet.
2. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, orange zest, Chinese five spice, sea salt, half the walnuts, half the strawberries and half the chocolate. Add to prepared baking dish.
3. Scatter the remaining strawberries, walnuts, chocolate and the banana on top of the oats.
4. In another large bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, butter and vanilla extract then pour over the oats and fruit.

6. Bake oatmeal until the top is golden brown and the milk mixture has set, which will be about 35 minutes.
7. For an extra tasty top, sprinkle a tablespoon or so of brown sugar on top of the oatmeal and then place back in the oven under the broiler and broil for 20-30 seconds.
