Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal is the perfect breakfast to prep for busy days on the go when you still want something satisfying that will energize your day. It is soft and moist, sweetened with real fruit and no refined sugar, and is gluten free and vegan.
We all know that we can make a great banana bread when we have those overripe bananas in our kitchen, but sometimes maybe we want something a little lighter, a little less involved, or just something a little different (because I don’t know about you but otherwise we’d be living off banana bread in our house- Neil loves buying bananas and then forgetting to bring them to work). BUT – we want it to be just as tasty of course!
That is where this delicious baked oatmeal comes in to play. It tastes just like your favorite banana bread, is the PERFECT breakfast meal prep to keep around all week long to bring on the go(or even freeze!), and is super easy to make! Oh and did I mention, it is gluten free, dairy free, and vegan. I call that a win-win-WIN. It is perfect for the whole family regardless of most dietary restrictions!
Let’s Make Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal!
This recipe is super easy, just mix everything together, dump it in a pan and bake! You can tell in my photos I used a larger pan that I had. But you can make this with any 8×8 or 9×9 pan that you have. If you use a smaller pan it will just increase the bake time. But start with 30 minutes and then check it. you will know when it is done because the oatmeal will be firm, bounce back when you touch it, and the edges will be golden brown.
Of course if you don’t have certain dietary restrictions in your house and don’t have certain ingredients listed below you can use regular oats versus gluten free, a real egg, and cow’s milk, and your oatmeal will be just as great! I just like to make my recipes as diet-friendly as possible 🙂 don’t want anyone to feel left out because of something they can’t eat!
