Baked Banana Oatmeal


Its Friday! That means it's time for another Your Recipe- My Kitchen Post.

This is actually a recipe I had been making to make for a while, I made this Baked Banana Oatmeal last Thursday and then I made it again on Sunday - it was that good!  This recipe is from Kath Eats Real Food.  If you like oatmeal (I love oatmeal) Kerf is a great resource for all things oatmeal.  Seriously, there is an entire page titled a Tribute to Oatmeal and its fantastic.  I have been making Kath's stove top version for a while, adding mashed banana to it while its cooking so I knew I would like her recipe for baked oatmeal - the flavors are similar to the stove top oatmeal.  I did love this and so did my kids - they both love the bars.  As an added bonus my kids love the stove top oatmeal as well, they ask for it often  and think their mommy makes the best oatmeal - I'll give KERF her credit on my blog but I'm going to continue to let my kids think their mommy rocks at oatmeal.  Enjoy!!

What you need:
2 large bananas (or 3 smaller ones)
2 cups of rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 cups of milk
1 tablespoon brown sugar

What you do:
Preheat oven to 375.
Slice one large or 2 smaller bananas, layer 1/2 the banana in a square baking dish coated with cooking spray (or lined with parchment paper.)
Combine your dry ingredients in a bowl, oats, baking powder and salt.
In another bowl combine the egg,  one banana (mashed),milk and vanilla.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well.  Pour on top of sliced  bananas and then top with remaining bananas.


Bake for 26 minutes.  After the 26 minutes top the oatmeal with the brown sugar and increase the heat to broil.  Broil for 3-4 minutes until the top is bubbly golden brown.


Slice into four squares and serve.


And since everything is better with some peanut butter.....



Its time for our annual summer vacation  - woohoo!!   We are headed to the beach with my Hubby's family and I am so excited to relax with my family for a little while.  Hubby's birthday is tomorrow also so its going to be nice to celebrate it with everyone.  I am going to do my best to unplug while away - wish me luck and hopefully you wont hear from me for a week. 
 Happy  4th everyone!!

  4. So funny, I just posted my banana recipe. It's a hybrid of banana fritters and a funnel cake. Yours sounds really good.
    Also, I just noticed AuPairCare ad in the bottom of your post, and just yesterday I met a girl who heads their Tennessee area.
    Have a great vacation! Happy bday, Hubby. I guess I wont see your at the Freedom Fest. We go every year and kids love it.

  12. Oh my goodness. It's one in the morning, and I should be going to bed, but instead I'm looking at your delicious food and my stomach is grumbling - because, well, there's NOTHING better than oatmeal - it's totally one of my favorite, favorite foods! I (surprisingly!) have all the ingredients for this, and will totally be making it in the morning!
