My family and I are big on breakfast, but since I have a hard working husband who is always in a rush during work week mornings, and a toddler son who can be a little picky, it can be hard to please everyone with one dish. Thank god for this baked oatmeal recipe! It’s a surefire way to get the whole family smiling and keep their bellies full all the way until lunch. It also happens to be beyond delicious, incredibly healthy, and easy to make too. And best of all, you can make a big batch and then reheat it throughout the week.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • a large baking dish
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 1 cup uncooked oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup raw, sliced almonds (or other nut of your choice)
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or other milk of your choice)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

 

Directions:

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  • Lightly spray your baking dish with cooking oil.
  • Slice bananas and line bottom of the dish. Then top with 1/2 of your blueberries and 1/4 of the cinnamon.
  • Cover with tinfoil and bake for 15 minutes.

While that’s baking, combine the oats, half of your nuts, baking powder, the rest of the cinnamon and salt in a bowl. In another bowl, mix together your milk, egg and vanilla.

When the 15 minutes is up, remove your dish from the oven and pour your dry ingredients on top of your baked berries, bananas and cinnamon. Next, pour the wet mix on top of that.

Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes, and ENJOY!
