Banana Apple Baked Oatmeal


Oatmeal is a perfect breakfast food. It's full of fiber, including soluble fiber (which helps lower cholesterol). Yet even though oatmeal is a great breakfast food, it gets boring very quickly.

I found this recipe for a baked oatmeal that makes about 4 servings. You can keep them multiple days and just heat it up in the morning. Its a new, interesting way of doing oatmeal. Best of all, it has a little crunch from the quinoa.

Baked Oatmeal

Ingredients

  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup quinoa
  • ¼ cup wheat bran
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 cup frozen berries or sliced apples

Directions

  1. Mix together oats, quinoa, bran, baking powder, salt and cinnamon
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together milk, egg, vanilla, and one mashed banana. Mix with the dry ingredients
  3. Great a loaf pan and lay 1 sliced banana along the bottom and half the berries. Pour in oat mixture and top with remaining berries
  4. Bake at 375 for 40 minutes or until golden and slightly puffed.
