Banana/Walnut Baked Oatmeal Squares :)

Tara Eagle Recipe

By Tara Eagle Plushygal

GREAT BREAKFAST ON THE GO! Lightly sweet-- wholesome- filling! I created this recipe from a Baked Oatmeal recipe-- that featured applesauce instead of banana and didn't have Bisquick in it (I replaced 1/2 C of the oats with Bisquick)-- I however, really like the cake like texture it has now-- it holds together enough so you can pick up a square and eat it by hand. I have since come up with other versions: Banana/Chocolate Chip, Spiced Peach, Cinnamon Apple, Pumpkin/Raisin... I'm working on coming up with a Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal Square version-- I'll post it here when I do!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees
2
Spray a 13" x 9" pan with pan coating spray-- cover sides and bottom well.
3
In a large bowl, stir together: oil, bananas, sugar and eggs.
4
Add in dry ingredients: oats, Bisquick, baking powder, spices, walnuts-- and milk. Mix well-- be sure to break up the brown sugar and incorporate it.
5
Pour into the prepared pan
6
If desired-- I let bake for about 20 minutes-- pull out and sprinkle generously with Sugar in the Raw brand, Turbinado Sugar. (It's course and adds a nice bit of a crunch to the top!) Return to the oven for an additional 10-15 minutes.
7
Let cool-- then cut into squares-- I make about 12 servings from one pan. Keep leftovers in the refrigerator--lightly warm back up. I like to re-heat in my toaster oven :)
