The flavor of banana bread permeates baked oatmeal, in this filling and delicious family-friendly breakfast!

The other day I was looking at recipes online (a hobby of mine), and discovered this one for Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal. I love banana bread and I love oatmeal, so I had a hunch I would enjoy this breakfast treat. Yep- I was right… this is a delicious, filling, flavor-filled breakfast!

The recipe calls for all the goodies found in a good loaf of banana nut bread. This includes bananas, pecans, cinnamon and nutmeg, etc.. This difference is this recipe uses old-fashioned rolled oats, and is baked in a casserole dish! The baked oatmeal is really delicious, and the taste kind of reminds me of my Mom’s Banana Nut Bread.

Here’s How Easy It Is To Make Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal

Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl (oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt).

Melt the butter and add it to the dry ingredients. Stir the ingredients together, to combine.

In a separate bowl, mix together milk, mashed banana, egg, and vanilla extract. Pour this mixture into the flour mixture, and stir. Add the chopped pecans and mix well.

Time To Bake the Oatmeal

Bake the oatmeal in a preheated 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes. Mine took 30 minutes to completely firm up in the middle. During the last 5 minutes of baking time, I placed a cookie sheet with extra chopped pecans in the oven to lightly toast (to be used as garnish later… optional).

When the dish is finished baking, remove the pan of banana bread baked oatmeal and sheet of toasted pecans to a wire rack. Sprinkle the top of the oatmeal with toasted chopped pecans. The next thing you do is to let the hot baked oatmeal cool down to room temperature.

You can eat the banana bread baked oatmeal warm, but I truly think it tastes best when eaten at room temperature. Once totally cooled, it was easier to cut into pieces, but ultimately… just serve it however you prefer.

Once the oatmeal has cooled, cut it into slices, and serve. You could bake this the night before you want to serve it, so it’s ready to go in the morning. Yum… this baked oatmeal tastes like banana bread, but it’s packed with oats! The old fashioned oats make it an even more filling and nutritious breakfast treat!
