Baked Banana Bread Oatmeal has all the taste of banana bread, but in a wholesome breakfast you can make ahead of time. This baked oatmeal recipe is gluten free and has no added sugar. The sweetness of the ripe bananas along with some cinnamon provide just enough sweetness without overdoing it. I love making a batch of this on the weekend and storing it in the fridge for easy grab and go breakfast.
How to Make Baked Oatmeal
Baked oatmeal sets up due to the eggs in the recipe. In this baked oatmeal recipe, 2 eggs and 1 cup of milk is just enough to create a light custard that allows the oatmeal to set. You could swap the bananas for berries or apples. Chocolate chips would also be a good addition. Cooking the oatmeal in the oven and using the eggs allows the oatmeal puff up and set so you can cut into it. If creamy oatmeal isn’t your thing, try this method. It’s more chewy granola bar meets oatmeal.
