Baked Banana Oatmeal

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but busy people often have less time to prepare it. Well, thanks to our Baked Banana Oatmeal recipe, you can have a filling, balanced breakfast with hardly any prep! This breakfast dish features bananas and peanut butter in a casserole, so it’s easy to make ahead and throw in the oven later. We’ve used rolled oats to keep you full and satisfied, eggs and walnuts for a boost of protein, and cinnamon, nutmeg, and almond extract for flavor. It’s sweetened with maple syrup and honey, plus we’ve used almond milk to keep it dairy-free.

The best thing about this recipe is how customizable it is! If your feeding it to your young ones, add chocolate chips or substitute with their favorite fruit! It also reheats well, so you can freeze it in individual portions for a quick, weekday breakfast.

    Can you use steel cut oats?

    • Nichole Furlong  July 24, 2019

      Steel cut oats would not be the best choice for this recipe.

    This was so delicious! I had to cut the recipe in half because I only had one banana. I used vanilla extract and chopped almonds instead since that’s what I had on hand and baked it at the same temperature. My goodness, I had to refrain from eating a much larger serving.

    I came across this recipe after receiving suggestions from Pinterest. I often look for baked goods that are healthy with simple ingredients and that can satisfy my sweet tooth. So glad I found this! This recipe will definitely be pinned.
