Recipe of the Week: Baked Cinnamon Banana Oatmeal

I made some nice warm oatmeal for breakfast from a recipe I found here.  I didn't have the fruit from the recipe so I used bananas instead and topped it with some peanut butter.  I love oatmeal so you can't really go wrong.  It was something different and was a good excuse to turn on the oven.

  • 1 cup old fashioned {gluten free} oats 
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder 
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 
  • Pinch of salt 
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup, plus more for serving 
  • 1 cup milk (I used skim but any kind will work) 
  • 1 large egg 
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 2 bananas

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease or spray a 2-quart casserole dish with either butter or cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss together the oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, milk, egg, the melted butter, and the vanilla. 
  3. Place the diced apples in a single layer in the bottom of the prepared casserole dish. Sprinkle about two-thirds of the raisins over the top of the apples, then cover the fruit with the oat mixture. Drizzle the milk mixture over the oats, making sure to distribute the milk as evenly as possible. Sprinkle the remaining raisins over the top of the oats. Bake the oatmeal for 35-45 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the oats have set. 
  4. Remove the oatmeal from the oven and serve hot with more maple syrup.
