Banana Baked Oatmeal

15 Jan

We found the cutest little ramekins at Target the other day on clearance for only $2.08! They were the perfect size for making baked oatmeals, mini pot pies, and egg bakes. So we hadddd to put them in our cart. We only got two, but we kinda wish we would have bought the other ones as well. They are a great addition to anyone’s kitchen ware. So if you see them at your Target on clearance.. snatch them up for yourself!

Of course we had to make something with our new ramekins ASAP. First up, baked oatmeal banana style. It turns out to be the perfect gooey breakfast. We recommend it. And the mashed banana makes for the perfect sweetener. Two thumbs up for natural sweetness.

Ingredients:
1/2 mashed banana
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup milk of choice (unsweetened vanilla was ours)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 tablespoon ground flax
1/2 tablespoon chai seeds (can omit if do not have on hand)

Directions:
1. In a different bow, mash 1/2 of a banana in a bowl and add vanilla extract and milk of choice. Stir together.
2. Add in the cinnamon, baking powder, rolled oats, ground flax, and chai seeds and mix together.
3. Spray ramekin with cooking spray and then add mixed ingredients.
4. Slice the other half of your banana on top of the mixture and bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

Feel free to add any extra toppings after your baked oatmeal is complete. Our choice was fresh sliced pears and a drizzle of maple syrup. Depending on how soft you like your baked oatmeal additional milk on top would be a good choice as well! Hope you try out this recipe because you definitely won’t regret it.
