Simple Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal
Enjoy this version of banana bread baked with oatmeal. Pair it with a protein source for a balanced breakfast, or serve alone as a pre-workout snack!
This recipe has me hoping that we have leftover bananas every week. I usually enjoy this in my morning yogurt bowls (IYKYK), but this is also a fantastic pre-workout snack for a quick boost of energy. And just like my simple apple crisp, it’s certainly sweet enough to have for dessert too!
I started making baked oatmeal because I wanted a faster breakfast in the morning. While I truly enjoy oats, I didn’t want to take the additional time to make it. I was also annoyed with how many times I let it bowl over in the microwave…what a mess! Ever since I switched to baked oats, I’ve enjoyed them so much that I make them almost every week.
Why I LOVE Baked Oatmeal
Ingredients in Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal
The hardest part of this recipe is definitely waiting for ripe bananas. I like to have a good amount of spots on my bananas so that they add additional sweetness and are easier to mash!
You’ll also need: eggs, milk, butter, vanilla extract, and sugar.
The dry ingredients are flour, oatmeal, cinnamon, baking soda, and a pinch of salt. I prefer to make my baked oatmeal with quick cooking oats, but I have successfully made this recipe with rolled oats as well. I like to fold chocolate chips into the batter, but chopped nuts (like walnuts) would be delicious in this recipe too! Heck, maybe both chocolate chips AND walnuts!
