Banana Walnut Baked Oatmeal
Serves: 6
 
This banana walnut baked oatmeal tastes so similar to banana bread, you won't even realize it's actually a healthy breakfast option!
Ingredients
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1½ tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 medium-large banana, mashed
  • 1¾ cups milk (I used almond milk)
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅓ cup walnuts, chopped
  • Optional toppings: Banana slices, additional walnuts, pancake syrup
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8x8 pan with cooking spray.
  2. Mix first 4 ingredients together in a large bowl
  3. Pour milk into a medium sized bowl. Add the eggs and whisk until combined. Whisk in the mashed banana. Don't worry, there will still be lumps of banana, but that's fine
  4. Pour milk mixture over dry ingredients. Stir to combine and let sit for 10 minutes.
  5. After 10 minutes, pour oatmeal into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the ⅓ cup of chopped walnuts on top.
  6. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the center is set and top has slightly browned. Eat right away or let cool and re-heat later.
