Baked Oatmeal with Blueberries and Bananas

Baked oatmeal is a bit like eating dessert for breakfast, but I say "go for it!" I saw this recipe on Skinnytaste and made it that day. It far surpasses any other versions I've tried in the past. Past recipes yielded a very hard, dried, cake-like oatmeal. This version reminds me of a bread pudding, though firmer.

  • Bake 15 minutes, until the bananas get soft. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the oats, half of nuts, baking powder, remaining cinnamon, and salt; stir together.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining honey, milk, egg, and vanilla extract.
  • Remove the bananas from the oven, then pour the oat mixture over the bananas and blueberries. 
  • Pour the milk mixture over the oats, making sure to distribute the mixture as evenly as possible over the oats.  
  • Sprinkle the remaining blueberries and walnuts over the the top.

An easy recipe, a satisfying portion, and a good-for-you breakfast. There's no downside.
