Roasted Banana Baked Oatmeal

I did it again.

I, again, roasted bananas. And, again, I baked some oatmeal.

Like I told you before, I am ON oatmeal right now. And as much as I love my oats+nut butter+apple combination,  baked oats are such a nice change. The roasted bananas? Well I bought a huge bag of ripe bananas. What better way to use them?

This dish is satisfying, comforting and nourishing. You just feel better after eating it. It’s a great start to a day.

I can’t get over the plump raisin and crunchy pecan combination.

The banana flavor is spot on. Roasting bananas makes them taste amazing, and in the oatmeal, adds the perfect sweetness.

Method:

Preheat oven to 400*.  Grease a 9-inch baking dish. I brushed mine with melted coconut oil.

Start with:

2 bananas

Cut bananas in half, lengthwise, and place on a baking sheet. Roast in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until soft and skin is black. Set aside and let cool completely. Reduce oven heat to 375*.

Next:

2 c. oats (I used old fashioned)
1/2 c. chopped pecans
2/3 c. golden raisins
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.

Then:

1 egg, lightly beaten
1.5 c. milk (I used almond)
1/3 c. honey
1 tsp. pure maple syrup
2 Tbsp. melted + cooled coconut oil
2 roasted bananas, from above, mashed

Add wet ingredients to a bowl. Mix well. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well to combine. Place in  greased 9-inch baking dish. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until firm on top and golden around the edges.

*Notes:
-I used 2 Tbsp. melted coconut oil but melted butter would work fine.
-I served mine in bowls, with almond milk and extra cinnamon. So good!

Enjoy!
