INGREDIENTS YOU'LL NEED FOR THIS RECIPE
2 Ripe Bananas - using ripe bananas with a few brown spots gives this oatmeal the best flavor!
Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats - regular, rolled oats
Almond Milk - I like using vanilla flavored almond milk. You can also use regular whole milk or any non-dairy milk instead.
Butter - real butter, not the fake stuff
Maple Syrup - 100% pure maple syrup or brown sugar
Chopped Pecans - walnuts would work too, but I think pecans taste better.
Full instructions are included in the recipe card below, but here’s a quick overview:
Step One: In a large mixing bowl, mash ripe bananas with a fork. Add melted butter, maple syrup and vanilla. Gently mix together. Next add almond milk and one beaten egg.
Step Two: To the same bowl add in your dry ingredients: rolled oats, baking powder, ground cinnamon, chopped pecans and salt. Gently mix all ingredients together with a spatula. Don’t over mix.
Step Three: In a medium size baking dish, sprayed with a little cooking spray or butter the sides and bottom, add oatmeal mixture and spread evenly. Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes.
Step Four: Once done, serve warm with some maple syrup drizzled on top. You can also add some fresh fruit and extra nuts on top as well. Enjoy!
STORAGE AND REHEATING
Baked oatmeal stores extremely well. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat individual servings in the microwave or in the oven and serve warm with maple syrup on top!
