The Best Blog Recipes: Baked Banana & Blueberry Oatmeal

Baked Banana & Blueberry Oatmeal

Ok, I have to admit that I'm not a huge oatmeal for breakfast fan.  I never ate it growing up and to tell you the truth.... I just had oatmeal for the first time about 2 years ago.  I know, I know... I was a super picky eater growing up and the thought of a bowl of oatmeal was not my idea of a good time. But, now that I'm older and less picky (parents there is hope for your picky eaters, I promise) I've discovered that apple cinnamon oatmeal is my favorite but I'm open to try new things. 

That's why I set out and searched, and searched for an oatmeal recipe that I thought I might like.  I came across a blog (Good Thymes & Good Food) with a Fresh Fruit Baked Oatmeal recipe that I thought was worth a try.  The only problem is that I didn't have a huge assortment of fresh fruit on hand so I used bananas and frozen blueberries instead and it turned out really fabulous!

Baked Blueberry & Banana Oatmeal Ingredients

2 cups old-fashioned Quaker Rolled Oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup honey
2 cups milk
1 large eggs, lightly beaten
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 bananas, peeled and chopped into bite sized pieces
1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries (thawed at room temp for 10 minutes)
1/2 cup honey flavored granola

Preheat your oven to 375°.  Lightly butter the inside of a 2 quart casserole dish.

In a medium mixing bowl combine your rolled oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.  Set aside.

In a bowl combine your eggs, maple syrup, honey, milk, eggs, butter and vanilla.  Whisk together well.  

Cover the bottom of your casserole dish with 1 of the chopped bananas.  Top with 1/2 of the blueberries.  

Pour your dry mixture over the fruit and spread out evenly.  Pour your liquid ingredients over the oats.  Top with the remaining banana and blueberries.

Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes.  The top should start to brown and the oats should start to set.  Remove from the oven and sprinkle the honey flavored granola over the top and return to the oven for an additional 5-7 minutes of baking time.  

Remove from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Oatmeal is one of the only things I've been able to keep down in my early pregnancy and eating the same old plain oatmeal was getting old. I loved the taste of this recipe! Thanks for posting it!

It is very easy to make. I think it is a little salty and I cannot really taste the Maple syrup.
