realistic recipes for a nutritious kitchen

Baked Banana Oatmeal (Video)

Recently on FaceBook, I shared this little fact about myself:

“I used to be really into ‘amazing meals and gourmet ingredients’ but after having kids my new philosophy in the kitchen is this; make healthy food that requires little effort and tastes pretty good.”

I can no longer spend hours in the kitchen experimenting with new recipes, however, what I can do is spend fleeting moments of the day browsing my favorite blogs and websites.

ENTER — Kath Eats Real Food (aka KathEats).

Kath began blogging as a way to record her 30lb weight loss journey and became a Registered Dietician along the way.  If you enjoy peeking behind the curtains of other peoples health and life journeys you will probably enjoy checking her out.  It’s truly a diary of her life – kind of like reality tv for the web – just without the crazy.

Anyhow, this is a recipe from Kaths blog.

I’ve always wanted to try baked oats and I get a lot of requests for a recipe so I was going to use this recipe as my base and then tweak it to my likes BUT much to my pleasure, the recipe was delicious just the way it was, so why mess with a good thing, right?

I hope you enjoy the play by play in this video AND I would LOVE to know if you’ve ever tried making baked oats yourself?  If so, do you have any tips or tricks worth sharing?

Baked Banana Oatmeal

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups dry rolled oats
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3 bananas (2 sliced into rounds)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1.5 cups 2% milk (or whatever type of milk you use)
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp. turbinado sugar (aka – sugar in the raw)

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 375F

In a large bowl combine the oats, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.  Set aside.

In a medium bowl mash one banana with the back of your fork until you have a baby food-like consistency.  Mix in egg whites, milk, and vanilla.  Combine everything together and then pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and combine well.

Grease an 8x8 metal baking pan and line with one sliced banana.  Pour the oat mixture over the bananas and then top with the other sliced banana.  Sprinkle sugar over the top and then pop in the oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.

Cool and slice into four pieces.  Enjoy!

Makes 4 servings.

    Looks great! Can this transfer to cooking in a toaster oven?

    I love this recipe just as is but since my husband won’t eat it with the bananas I am about to try it with apples.
    So glad I found your site. I have made several of the recipes and have loved them all.

    i love baked oats because you can make a batch and eat on it all week – i just pop it in the microwave and add some berries on top. so fast and easy in the mornings. this pumpkin spice baked oatmeal recipe is my favorite: http://www.oxygenmag.com/Nutrition/Articles/Baked-Pumpkin-Spice-Oatmeal.aspx

    I decided to triple the ingredients to make a big batch – I added walnuts, cranberries, small pieces of granny apples, and of course extra bananas. Before baking, I sprinkled cinnamon and a bit of sugar. I ate a big piece last night and this morning I had a small piece. Overall, it is a delicious recipe. Thank you Dani for a great recipe!

    Can I use honey to sweeten instead of sugar? How much?

    LOVE this recipe! I’ve made it a bunch of times! Last time, I omitted the turbinado sugar (by accident, but we didn’t miss it!) and used a scoop of vanilla protein powder instead of the vanilla extract. It’s AMAZING! Dani, you are the best!

    I made this without eggs, I used 1/2 cup almond flour with some chopped dats and extra 1/4 cup milk, it’s really good
