Not to toot my own horn but I was right, for once. ha ha Stevie liked it and some coworkers liked it so much, they asked for the recipe. Of course I was happy to share.
This banana baked oatmeal is super moist and like the peanut butter recipe, it's perfect for breakfast on the go or a healthier dessert. These will not last long either so you might want to make another batch.
For the oats, I used a combination of 2 cups rolled and 1 cup quick though any combination will work.
Let's get to the recipe.
2 or 3 large banana's (I used 3)
1 cup of sucanant or sweetener of choice
2 cups of plant milk
1 tsp salt
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups of oats
2 tbsp flax meal
6 tbsp water
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Prepare an 8x8 pan by lining it with parchment of lightly oil it and set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together the flax meal and water. This will be the flax egg. Set aside for a few minutes.
In a large bowl, mash the banana really well. Then whisk in the sucanant, salt, baking powder, vanilla, plant milk and flax egg. I mix it this way to make sure everything is mixed properly.
Once everything is mixed and whisked well, add the oats and mix again.
Pour into your prepared pan and bake for at lease 30 minutes. At this point start checking to see if it's done by inserting a toothpick in the center. If it comes out clean, the oat meal is done. If not, continue another few minutes.
Let cool before enjoying.
