Baked Banana Oatmeal

For a food blogger, I eat a pretty boring breakfast every day. Something about Cheerios and blueberries never gets old to me, but I recognize that this isn't the most appetizing option for guests and on the weekends I like to get a little jazzy. When we had houseguests at Thanksgiving I whipped up a fabulous baked banana oatmeal that was healthy and hearty.

Only 5 minutes hands on and 25 minutes in the oven for a warm-you-from-the-inside breakfast. Easy enough to become a weekday option for those cold winter mornings.

Baked Banana Oatmeal
2 cups rolled oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 1/2 cups fat free milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 pinches cinnamon
2 spoonfuls brown sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a square baking dish with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.

Combine oats, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine egg, bananas, milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour wet ingredients into the bowl with oats and stir to combine. Pour into baking dish and bake for 25 minutes. Sprinkle brown sugar over oats and turn on oven to broil. Watch closely and remove once brown sugar is melted.

Scoop into a bowl and enjoy!
