banana baked oatmeal - nu roots nutrition

Today’s post is going to be short and sweet, literally. I’m guessing many of you are out of the warm breakfast season, but I still love a great bowl of oats for breaky, no matter the season. Plus, I even eat the leftovers of this recipe cold, and it is still super yum!

It was time for a switch up of my regular routine so I decided to give baked oatmeal a try. I like how the eggs boost up the protein content a touch, and to me there is no greater smell than bananas baking in the oven, so this recipe was a winner in my books!

directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F
  • In a bowl mix together the base ingredients
  • Line a large baking dish with parchment paper
  • Pour the base ingredients into the baking dish and distribute evenly
  • In a bowl, mix together the wet ingredients
  • Pour the wet ingredients over the base ingredients in the baking dish and distribute evenly
  • Give the baking dish a light shake from side to side to help distribute the wet ingredients
  • Finish off the dish with the toppings, sprinkled or placed evenly throughout
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes
  • Serve slices warm in a bowl on it’s own or with a splash of milk substitute if you desire

Feel free to get creative and change up the fruit and nuts to your liking, Personally, I think a blueberry and macadamia nut combo would be killer as well.

  1. Hi Sam,
    Made this recipe this morning, and it is too good. I had 2 bowls already and thinking about a third…thanks for posting it.

  2. Made this for second time. Toasted oats, coconut and nuts before hand this time. Added allot of flavour. Like texture better more like a granola bar. Dont add bananas to squishy, dont add molasses(just don’t dig it). Great basic recipe you can make your own, might try dried fruit,i.e. cranberries next time. A new fav !!
