This lasts several days and I like to have it on hand for a quick breakfast. It can be served warm or cold and is great topped with yogurt and fruit. There are many variations and I have listed several in the directions.

How To Make baked oatmeal

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • 2
    Mash bananas in bowl.
  • 3
    Add dry ingredients except nuts and mix. The protein powder is optional, but I prefer to up the protein content.
  • 4
    Add wet ingredients and mix well. Stir in the nuts, if desired.
  • 5
    Pour into a greased or parchment lined baking dish, 9x5 loaf pan, or muffin tins.
  • 6
    Bake for 25 minutes. It should no longer jiggle when you shake the pan but you don’t want to dry it out. Let it rest 20-30 minutes before cutting.

    This is my base recipe and it tastes like banana bread. There are many ways to change it up: - Add chocolate chips - Brownie version - Add 1/8 cup cocoa powder, use white sugar instead of brown, chocolate protein powder instead of vanilla, add chocolate chips - Black Forest- add frozen cherries to brownie version, but remove nuts - Carrot cake - add 1/2 c grated carrots, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, generous dash nutmeg - PBJ - add 1/4 cup nut butter and 1/4 c jam of choice - Berries - add 1/2 c blueberries, strawberries etc Experiment and make it your own!
