Baked Banana Oatmeal
Baked Banana Oatmeal is the coziest breakfast recipe! It’s made with bananas, oats, walnuts, and maple syrup, and it just so happens to be vegan-friendly and can easily be made gluten free, too!
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup walnuts chopped
- 3 bananas divided
- 1 egg or sub a flax egg
- 1 1/2 cups almond milk
- 1/4 cup coconut oil melted and cooled
- 2 tablespoon maple syrup
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease an 8x8 baking dish with coconut oil or nonstick spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, stir the oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and walnuts together.
Next, mash one of the bananas in a small bowl and set aside.
Add the mashed banana, along with the remaining wet ingredients, to the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish, then top the oatmeal with the remaining bananas (two, sliced).
Bake the oatmeal for 45-48 minutes, or until the center has set. Remove from the oven, wait a few minutes, then slice and enjoy!
