Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal

Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal (gluten free) - - - >

Heck yes, I jumbled up baked oatmeal and banana bread, slammed them together, forced them to be friends, heat treated them until they made my house smell like potpourri, then ravaged them like a rabid chipmunk.

Okay, what happened was a lot less of a diseased smack down than what I just described. What happened was much more fluid…less aggressive…and the result was, of course, heavenly.

When it comes to breakfast, baked oatmeal and banana bread are always sure to give my heart a flutter.  Sweet and dense is the route I choose in the morning. And you can take that for what it’s worth. Okay.

Combining two of my food loves – baked oatmeal and banana bread – to make banana bread baked oatmeal resulted in a fit of how-did-I-not-make-this-eons-ago? It’s the perfect comforting breakfast for a lazy weekend morning.  Do you have children? They’ll eat this. Shoooo nuff! Especially if you drizzle maple syrup all over it. You’re a pleaser, admit it.

At any rate (where did that phrase come from? Am I mis-using it? Ah shhh yeah), this recipe is naturally sweetened using pure maple syrup and bananers. It can eeeeeasily be gluten free as long as you use gluten-free oats. Done.

Bake it this weekend. Put yogurt-atop. Sliced bananas. Drink a pot of coffee like no one’s watching. I’ll keep my fingers crossed you don’t encounter any rabid chipmunks. None whatsoever." srcset=" 320w, 150w, 165w, 200w" sizes="(max-width: 320px) 100vw, 320px" data-pin-media="">

Just made this. I love how nicely spiced it is! The only thing I added was unsweetened coconut because life is better with coconut ?

This was delicious and leftovers freeze well. I portioned them out so all I had to do was grab one out of the freezer and nuke for 10 seconds on each side. So convenient and breakfast for an entire week! :)

WOW! ***** I just made this today and it's the best baked oatmeal I've ever had. SO flavorful and sweet! I couldn't believe there was only 2 T maple syrup! I followed the directions exactly (but used unsweetened vanilla almond milk) and cooked it 40 min. I ate it plain as it was so flavorful but it would also be good with some nut butter on top! Thanks for this recipe!!! :)

I added toasted walnut pieces to make this even more nutritious and delicious. Can't wait for breakfast tomorrow. Literally--I'm going to have a little bit right now!
