Sometimes it is nice to have something a little different for breakfast. That is just what I was looking for when I saw a post on Noble Pig for Banana Oatmeal Bake. Cathy posts some amazing recipes so I knew that this was going to be delicious and perfect for our busy morning.
With a wonderful banana bread aroma wafting through the house, I could hardly wait for the minutes to tick away and the timer to ring. I poured a bit of milk over the top and enjoyed each and every bite! I also knew that it was going to be loved by Sabine. Yes, my granddaughter has been here and she loves bananas...so this was certainly the perfect breakfast!
Banana Oatmeal Bake
adapted from Noble Pig
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup Bob's Red Mill 10 Grain Hot Cereal
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 cups milk (reduced fat works fine)
2 medium bananas, mashed
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
In a medium bowl, combine the oats, 10-Grain Cereal baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In another bowl, combine the brown sugar, milk, egg, vanilla extract and mashed bananas. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients.
Lightly spray an 8 X 8 baking pan with cooking spray and pour in the mixture. Bake at 375° F. for 15 minutes. Sprinkle the walnuts on top and bake for another 5 minutes to toast them.
This would be a good bake to make when there is company in the house or for Thanksgiving morning...or any morning for that matter....it's delicious and easy!
