Eating Baked Banana Oatmeal for breakfast this morning was such a treat– it was hearty, sweet, and comforting. And, the recipe was so easy to make. I could probably even make it during the work week, if I prepared the ingredients the night before. I’d just have to pop the mixture into the oven the next morning. I’ll have to keep this idea in mind! 😉

I also enjoyed a glass of iced coffee with breakfast.

I’ve already made some serious progress on my To Do list for today. Hopefully, I can keep up the momentum!

Happy Saturday! 😎

  1. This was awesome! Great for college students, because we just have to mix and pop it in the oven. I changed it up by turning it savoury: used water instead of milk, omitted the sugar and spices and added shredded cheese and green onions instead.

  2. This looks so good! I’ve been making a similar version of this lately in the microwave. Oats, banana, a little protein power, and then, the key, is to add an egg. It makes it really bake in to a bar, not just weird oatmeal!

  3. I loved this recipe so much I had to make it again for a simple, easy breakfast! Thank you so much for such a great twist on oatmeal!

  4. Looks delish! If I were to eat only half of this (one serving) could I freeze the other half and reheat it another day? 🙂

  5. This recipe looks excellent, will probably try to lighten up on the sugar some, but I can’t wait to try. I’m not sure about putting cheese and green onions in this like Vi, but will come up with a solution!
