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!
