Baked Oatmeal with Pumpkin and Bananas



Baked oatmeal with ripe bananas, pumpkin and pecans is the perfect way to start your morning!

When this first came out of the oven, I wasn't so sure...but after my first bite I knew I had a winner!

Ever think about how perfect a banana is? My favorite way to eat them is when they are bright yellow, with no brown spots. I always throw a banana in my bag for a quick snack on the go, or after a work-out, but does that mean when they get all dark brown they are bad?

No way! I never throw bananas out... ever! Once they go start to get brown spots, I use them for smoothies, baked oatmeal, banana nut pancakes, banana nut cookies, muffins, banana bread and more. The riper they are, the sweeter they become and if I know I don't plan on using them right away, I freeze them for banana ice cream (recipe coming tomorrow).

This year I was thrilled to attend Dole's first ever Banana Summit, held in Anaheim California at Disney's California Adventure Resort. I'm a bit behind covering the summit thanks to Hurricane Sandy that knocked out my power for 12 days, but I finally got my power back and was finally able to use my oven. Hurray! 


What is a "Banana Summit" you ask? Pretty much what it sounds like, a few days with wonderful blogger friends where we literally ate, drank and experienced bananas in every way possible.

And since I'm bananas for bananas (corny, I know) I was happy to be a part of this wonderful group of people. And getting to spend a day at Disneyland made me feel like a kid again. Why Disney? Disney collaborates with many companies and one of them happens to be Dole. At the famous Enchanted Tiki Room inside the Magic Kingdom I tried my first "Dole Whip" which was as good as I heard it was. And sitting inside the Enchanted Tiki Room brought me back to my childhood trip there.

If you have ripe bananas laying around, give this baked oatmeal a try. It's so good, it almost tastes like a banana-pumpkin nut bread. In fact, I told my toddler it was cake, and she ate it (cold).

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium ripe bananas, (the riper the better) sliced into 1/2" pieces
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 cup uncooked quick oats
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375° F.  Lightly spray a 8 x 8" or 9 x 9" ceramic baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.


Arrange the banana slices in a single layer on the bottom of the ceramic dish. Sprinkle 1/4 tsp of the cinnamon, honey and cover with foil. Bake 15 minutes, until the bananas get soft.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the oats, half of nuts, baking powder, remaining cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg and salt; stir together.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, brown sugar, milk, egg, and vanilla extract.

Remove the bananas from the oven, then pour the oat mixture over the bananas.

Pour the pumpkin mixture over the oats, making sure to distribute the mixture as evenly as possible.  Sprinkle the remaining nuts over the the top.

Bake the oatmeal for about 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the oatmeal has set. Serve warm from the oven.

  1. Yum...that looks fabulous! I'm bananas for bananas too! ;) I'm with you, if I'm eating them alone, they have to be perfectly yellow, but if I'm throwing them in a smoothie or baking with them, the browner the better.

  2. Gina, I'm allergic to cinnamon. What can I sub it for or is it okay if I leave it out?

    1. Beware of the pumpkin pie spice mixture - those usually have cinnamon too! Sub in nutmeg, ginger and allspice for the pumpkin pie spice mix and cinnamon.

      Delete
    2. Oops, allspice has cinnamon also. Use cloves instead.

      Delete
    3. Allspice is a different plant. It just has some cinnamon taste. I suppose you could be allergic to it but I am not.

  3. Sounds delicious! I'm questioning the WW points. I put this in the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers site. Bananas are 0. I put the recipe in with the bananas, it comes out as 6 points + per serving. If I leave out the bananas it comes up as a 4. I understand why the recipe builder calculates it higher, because it is basing the calculation on the combined nutritional information that includes the bananas. But if fruit and veggies are 0, do we need to include these ingredients when calculating a recipe? What do you think the REAL points + value. is...6 or 4???

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Once you use a fruit in a recipe it is no longer zero points.

      Delete
    2. Thanks, but not what I wanted to hear!

      Delete
    3. Baking brings out ALL the sugar content (which is why it used to be 2pt per serving. WW wanted to encourage eating fruits (because who ever got fat from eating bananas!)but when we cook them, the natural sugars concentrate. Still better than a chocolate bar tho :)

      Delete
    4. also, we are more likely to overindulge, for example, when bananas are baked into a delicious treat rather than on their own. hence why they cost points then.

      Delete
    5. I am a WW online member who has currently lost 70 lbs. on the program (in 16 months). Instead of using the recipe builder (if there are fruits and vegetables listed in a recipe) I record it as a meal, so the fruits and vegetables are not included in the total points. I know that's not the official WW policy (although I got the idea long ago from the website) but that policy has always struck me as wrong -- and designed to discourage members from using recipes with vegetables in them. Your mileage may vary, of course.

      Delete
    6. This issue was one of the things that made me dump WW online in favor of myfitnesspal - I didn't like the fact that if I sauteed a pound of kale in a teaspoon of olive oil, it had points, but if I ate it raw it didn't.

      Delete
    7. If you sauteed a pound of kale in a teaspoon of olive oil, it would at least have to earn the points for the oil. If you eat it raw, it has no oil to add calories.

  4. How long would this keep in the fridge after making? Does it reheat well?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. This reheats wonderfully! I would say 3 days?

    2. I kept mine in the fridge about 5 days as I used this for breakfast all week. Love it. Warm it up in the microwave and pour almond milk on top. Delicious

      Delete
  5. Can you please provide clarification on the honey? Recipe says drizzle 1 tbsp. of honey over bananas. Then later says add remaining honey to the pumpkin mixture. According to the ingredient list, I won't have any honey left. Did you mean drizzle 1 tsp. over the bananas?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oops, then I used the brown sugar. Or you can use honey, whichever.

  6. This sounds so awesome! Great breakfast idea!

  10. Is the brown sugar accounted for in the directions later in the recipe?

    ReplyDelete
  11. This was a tasty treat for breakfast! Really warm for a cold morning. PS> The brown sugar was not in the written directions, but because of the picture with the pumpkin layer I saw where to put it.

  12. Is there any other fruit that could be substituted for the banana? This looks delicious but unfortunately, my family isn't a big fan of them. Thanks :)

    1. I only had 2 bananas, so I just threw in a diced apple too when I made it just now and it's FABULOUS. I bet all apple or pear would be great too if bananas aren't your thing!

  13. Wow thats a great breakfast recipe. A must try for sure :)

  14. We love oatmeal around here -- I might have to try this, for a fun twist!

  15. I used the honey to drizzle and then added the brown sugar to the dry ingredients. Tasted awesome!

  16. Gina - you mention pecans in the ingredient list but walnuts in the directions - I made it with pecans but I would be it's a matter of preference? It is delicious and the serving size is huge!

  19. Looks amazing!

    Do you think mashing the bananas first would ruin it? I am not a fan of chunks of fruit, it's a texture thing!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. When the bananas cook they kind of expand and are not chunks at all..they fill in the bottom of the baking dish as a moist layer not really seen!!

    2. Exactly, it's like an amazing moist banana bread. Heaven!

    1. You can look at my other baked oatmeal recipe, it's banana and blueberry.

    2. You can make your own pumpkin pie spice - I think it's 4 common spices if I remember correctly (cinnamon, ginger, allspice and cloves, I think, though sometimes nutmeg is used instead of cloves).
      And I've made this with mashed sweet potato and it is delicious.

    2. When I saw this recipe we were out of oatmeal, so I used oat flour (1/2 cup), ground flax meal (1/4 cup) and ww flour (1/4 cup) in its place. After it had baked it was a little dry in the middle for our taste, so we poked a few holes in it and splashed a 1/3 cup pineapple juice over the top and holes, and drizzled 1 tbsp of maple syrup. Then baked for 15 more mins at 375. OMG - this stuff is to die for! Some low fat vanilla yogurt on top...it's like dessert for breakfast!

      Delete
    3. Mar BD, I also found this to be rather dry in the middle, even though I used the quick oats as called for in the recipe. I like your idea with the pineapple juice (poking holes and pouring over toward the end), plus I think the maple syrup is brilliant. I wish I had thought of that. My husband suggested just mixing the pumpkin mix and oats together (and pouring all over bananas, instead of doing layers of wet/dry/wet) so that the oats wouldn't be so much like a dusty center. I thought, "sure if I ever make this again" (and I probably will, but with some adjustments), but I like how you saved the day and fixed things on the spot. :)

      Delete
    4. Anonymous, please thank your husband for that idea. It sounds quicker AND less chance of becoming dry.

  34. Yum! I love using super ripe bananas in cereal/ yogurt bowls :P Mash 'em up and it's almost like pudding!

  40. I am soooo excited to try this recipe. I am currently on an elimination diet for my infant son who has eczema, so my question is...do you think it would still work without the egg?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Anon, I halved this recipe since it was only myself who was going to be eating it (using 1 banana instead of 3), so to account for that I just substituted 2 tsp water, 2 tsp oil, and 1/2 tsp baking powder (for an equivalent of 1 egg it called for 1 1/2 tbsp water, 1 1/2 tbsp oil, and 1 tsp baking powder). It came out perfect like pumpkin pie on top! I'm not sure what an elimination diet is or whether oil would be included in that, but it worked great! Google some ideas on substituting eggs in baking recipes as there are many other ways to do so :)

      Delete
  41. Oooh, that sounds incredible!

    ReplyDelete
  42. This looks amazing! I'm loving that pumpkin-y topping. And I'm so glad your power has returned--some of my family members are still without it. :(

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hi Gina,
    I just made this recipe and it did not turn out well at all. The bananas burnt to the bottom of the pan (even though the pan was oiled prior) and the oatmeal mixture remained completely dry and therefore, did not cook. In the photos you posted it looks like maybe the milk was meant to be poured over the bananas and not mixed in with the pumpkin?? I think this would have prevented the bananas from burning and provided the moisture needed for the oatmeal mixture.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. So odd it didn't work for you, did you use quick oats? If not it would probably require soaking.

      Delete
    2. nope, I used quick oats.

  44. Sorry, gina - this is the first recipe of yours that i did not like. FAR TOO SWEET!!!!! And I mean that seriously! Was more of a dessert than a breakfast, but not satisfying for either.....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The first time I tried the blueberry banana baked oatmeal I thought it was too sweet for me as well. But it's very easy to adjust for that. I've been making Gina's baked oatmeal recipe with just half the amount of sweetener in the recipe. The baked bananas already provide a good amount of sweetness into the dish. So if you don't have any other problem with this recipe except for the sweetness, maybe next time you can try it without the brown sugar, or just 1 tbsp of brown sugar instead of 3.

      Delete
    2. I thought it was perfect, I could have even added a bit more sugar. Chris, just eliminate the sweetener if you don't like it, I think it would have tasted bland without.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I liked this recipe, but I am not sure what I did wrong as the oatmeal did not soften all the way, but what I did to fix it was add a little vanilla soy milk to a serving and zap it in the microwave

  49. I have used cardamom in place of cinnamon in apple pie, it worked great. My daughter-in-law was also allergic to cinnamon.

  50. Great recipe...I enjoyed it. Made my house smell so good. I made my son eat several bites but he didn't like it. Sent some with my husband to work so we'll see.

  51. I was so excited that I had everything at home for this recipe... so I made it last night when I got home from work. It's awesome! My husband didn't like it, but he doesn't really like oatmeal. I love it and it's MY breakfast so I'll be keeping this recipe for future use. YUM!

  55. This pudding looks so yummy! This is a great substitute for a regular breakfast oatmeal.

  56. I just made this this morning with two changes. I used regular (old fashioned) oats instead of quick cooking, and I skipped the step about baking the bananas for 15 minutes first. I just put it all in at once and baked for 30 minutes. Perfect! It was delicious with a little maple syrup on it (real, of course).

    ReplyDelete
  57. If you leave out the pecans and sub Splenda brown sugar blend, it's only 3ppv per serving. Yay!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Could I use packaged oatmeal that I already have in the cupboard instead of the quick cooking oats?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Thanks Gina! loved this & will also try it with a mix of apples & bananas too. The BIG surprise was that the hubby loved it too! I baked it on a Sunday night and we bring it to work for breakfast. I add a little milk & reheat in the microwave, delish! Yet another keeper...

  64. I liked this, but wasn't amazed. For one, I think it was too sweet. A pinch of salt didn't really cut it...I think it needs a tad more. Also, the bananas and pumpkin together is too mushy for me. I think apples will work better. Great idea though,

    ReplyDelete
  65. I made this last weekend, I'm allergic to bananas so i chopped up a couple apples and it was wonderful!!

  75. I made your pumpkin butter recently and I was looking for a way to use up some of it. Is it possible to substitute the pumpking puree with pumpkin butter? Or would that make it too runny? Any other suggestions for the pumpkin butter? I've tried the skinny overnight oats in a jar (which is delicious). Just hoping for additional ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Since one serving has 23grams of sugar, should this be considered more dessert-like indulgence than breakfast? I would feel guilty eating it with that much sugar in one serving!

    ReplyDelete
  77. can I omit the milk or will this drastically change the outcome?

    ReplyDelete
  78. My son has a dairy allergy but he loves oatmeal. Is the egg absolutely necessary? I know I can replace the milk with his rice milk but I'm concerned about the egg. In vegan recipes I can use unsweetened applesauce as an egg replacer. Have you ever tried it with unsweetened applesauce before?

    ReplyDelete
  79. what changes would you have to make if using regular oats not 'quick" oats?

    ReplyDelete
  80. ohh, I'm a die-hard old-fashioned oatmeal with blueberries person, but I think I need to try this. I love pumpkin and I have a bunch of brown bananas.

    to the person who asked about regular oats above, I think you could just cook them first for 5 minutes and then use them, or maybe soak them in yogurt overnight, uncooked...I think I will do that, actually.

    ReplyDelete
  81. This is awesome, and I've never been fond of pumpkin pie. All the flavors just mix so well together. This is great for breakfast...and makes a pretty nice dessert, too.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Do you freeze this before baking? Thx!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Can you bake this and then freeze it, or just bake for the first part with the bananas, add the topping and then freeze? OR bake it all and then freeze?

  86. I made this on Sunday to eat for breakfast during the week. I reheated a serving in the microwave and served with a dollop of plain greek yogurt. It tasted great! Thanks for the recipe!

  87. This was delicious! I was wary of the banana on the bottom and not sure how the pumpkin would be on top, not mixed with the oatmeal, but I liked it. It was like pumpkin pie! I only had old-fashioned oats, and I used maple syrup not honey and omitted the nuts so I could feed some to my one-year old. He loved it! I enjoyed mine with walnuts. Thanks! I'll be making this again. I might try mashing the bananas on the bottom next time.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Great recipe. I sometimes use some apple if I only have a couple ripe bananas; works great. This is SO good warm from the oven and works as leftovers throughout the week. Yum!

  97. Ali IS WRONG!
    When you put a fruit into the recipe builder...ie the BANANA...the recipe builder from WW does not understand words. That is why the banana gets points.
    When you cook with a fruit.....it does NOT give it points.

  100. I would love to turn this into a crock pot meal. How long would you suggest cooking it? Would it work overnight?

  101. I love every recipe I have made from skinny taste except this one :( didn’t taste good at all…maybe more sugar :) but then it wouldn’t be “skinny” LOL

  102. Yum! It definitely looked odd when it came out of the oven and I had to skip the nuts because I didn't have any. The bananas kind of turn purple. But it was a delicious, easy and filling breakfast. I froze the pieces individually and brought them into work to microwave and it was just as good.

  103. I bought quick cooking steel cut oats because they were the only GF oats I could find. I'm curious to see if it works out tomorrow.

  104. The steel cut quick oats worked well. I would add more sugar and spices next time though, it wasn't sweet enough. I didn't cut my bananas thick enough so I only used 2.

  105. I currently have this baking in the oven and just realized I did not use quick oats!! We will see how that goes...there are some nut allergies in the family so instead of pecans I decided to sub in a few tablespoons of sweetened coconut.
