Baked Blueberry & Banana Oatmeal

Baked Blueberry & Banana Oatmeal

I use to hate oatmeal. I use to think it was a total “grandma” food. I guess now you can say it proved me otherwise or I just turned into a grandma. Who knows?? :’) I typically cook oatmeal on the stovetop or make overnight oats since it’s easiest. However, this morning – I decided to bake it to give it a try. DANG, it totally ignited my taste buds!

When I baked it, it was super moist (sorry if you hate that word), stayed warm for a long time & had a nice crisp on the outside. I added mashed banana, fresh blueberries and almond butter into the baked oatmeal – naturally sweetened with fresh fruit w/ some creaminess. That’s what I like (Bruno Mars reference).

It was so good I might make the same breakfast again REAL soon. I am a meal repeater and I have no shame – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it :’) Recipe deets below!

 

Ingredients:

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat over to 350 F.
  2. Mix together mashed banana, blueberries, almond butter & almond milk.
  3. In another small bowl, mix together oats, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and coconut flakes.
  4. Add banana mixture into dry mixture and pour in ramekin (mine was 3.5″ diameter – from Crate and Barrel – Small Ramekin)
  5. Top with extra coconut flakes and other toppings of choice.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or until the top slightly browns.
  7. When out the oven, top with more almond butter & slice some fresh bananas on top. Dig in while it’s still warm!

Make sure your ramekin is oven safe before using!
