Easy Baked Oatmeal

We need to talk about something important. Very important.

Food. Breakfast food.

If you live and breathe Pinterest (like me), go on occasionally or basically, don’t live under a rock, you’ll know that baked oatmeal is the biggest breakfast trend since avocado toast.

When fall rolls around, I believe the best way to start the day off is with a big bowl of oatmeal and an even bigger mug of coffee.

So, when someone passed along a recipe for cinnamon, peanut butter baked oatmeal, I had to give it a try. For research purposes. Of course.

Here’s what you do:

In a bowl, you’ll mash up two ripe bananas.

Add about 1/2 a cup of milk, 1 tsp vanilla and one egg.

In a separate bowl, add a cup and half of oats, 1 TBS cinnamon and a pinch of salt.

Add to banana mixture.

It’s honestly the most unappetizing, unbaked dish I’ve ever seen. Fair warning.

Pour the mixture into a greased square baking pan and cook at 375 for about 45 minutes.

Cut it into fourths, add a little fruit and milk then serve.

Overall, I think the recipe was a great blend of flavors. The sweet banana, the rich cinnamon and gooey peanut butter.

The texture, however, is not my favorite.

I think I’m going to stick with regular oatmeal from now on but if you like baked oatmeal, you have to give this recipe a try.

Now tell me, do you like baked oatmeal? Does the texture bother you?

More importantly, what’s your go-to fall breakfast? You know I’m always looking for new recipes!
