Ingredients

  • 2 bananas medium ripe (the riper the better) sliced into 1/2" pieces
  • 1 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup honey or agave
  • 1 cup quick oats uncooked (gluten-free)
  • 1/4 cup walnuts chopped. Substitute pecans if you prefer.
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup fat free milk or any milk you desire
  • 1 egg Or, substitute using flax seeds, chia seeds, or apple sauce (see notes)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly spray an 8 x 8" or 9 x 9" baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Arrange the banana slices in a single layer on the bottom of the baking dish. Sprinkle half of the blueberries over the bananas, 1/4 tsp of the cinnamon, 1 tbsp of the honey and cover with foil.
  • Bake 15 minutes, until the bananas get soft.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the oats, half of nuts, baking powder, remaining cinnamon, and salt; stir together.
  • Remove the bananas from the oven, then pour the oat mixture over the bananas and blueberries.
  • In the now empty bowl, whisk together the remaining honey, milk, egg, and vanilla extract.
  • Pour the milk mixture over the oats, making sure to distribute the mixture as evenly as possible over the oats. Sprinkle the remaining blueberries and walnuts over the the top.
  • Bake the oatmeal for about 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the oatmeal has set. Serve warm from the oven.

Notes

  • Alternatively, you may substitute 1 egg with any of the following:
    • 1 tablespoon flax seeds and 3 tablespoons water. Whisk together until gelatinous and creamy.
    • 1 tablespoon chia seeds and 3 tablespoons water. Stir together and rest for 15 minutes before incorporating into the recipe above.
    • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce.
