****You can prep the night before, refrigerate and then slide it into the oven as you are making your coffee. Preheat oven to 375 degrees with rack in top third of oven. Butter 8x8" baking pan. In a bowl, mix together oats, half the walnuts, sugar, if using, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together maple syrup, if using, milk, egg, half the butter, and vanilla. Arrange bananas in a single layer in bottom of prepared baking dish. Sprinkle two thirds of berries over top. Cover fruit with oat mixture. Slowly drizzle milk mixture over oats. Gently give baking dish a few "whacks" on countertop to make sure milk moves through the oats. Scatter remaining berries and walnuts on top. Bake 35 - 45 minutes, until top is golden and oats have set. Remove from oven; drizzle remaining melted butter on top. Serve with extra sugar or syrup.
