TASTY BREAKFAST ON THE GO! Lightly sweet-- wholesome- filling! The combination of whole grains (oats), protein and fruit really keeps hunger at bay. Nice served warm with a glass of milk.
I created this recipe from a Baked Oatmeal recipe-- that featured applesauce 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. You can also bake these in a muffin tin-- use some of your (super healthy) coconut oil to oil the muffin cups!

  3. In a medium bowl, combine all wet ingredients: melted coconut oil, bananas, pineapple, eggs, milk and extract. Mix to break up egg yolks and blend them in.
