  • 2 medium ripe bananas, (the riper the better) sliced into 1/2" pieces
  • 1 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup honey, or agave
  • 1 cup uncooked quick oats*
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup fat free milk, or any milk you desire
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • *check labels for gluten-free


  • 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 half of the blueberries over the bananas, 1/4 tsp of the cinnamon, 1 tbsp of the 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, and salt; stir together.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining honey, milk, egg, and vanilla extract.
  • Remove the bananas from the oven, then pour the oat mixture over the bananas and blueberries.
  • Pour the milk mixture over the oats, making sure to distribute the mixture as evenly as possible over the oats.  Sprinkle the remaining blueberries and walnuts over the the top.
  • Bake the oatmeal for about 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the oatmeal has set. Serve warm from the oven.

  1. I mix the wet Ingredients and dry ingredients then add them together and throw it in the pan and turns out perfect every time. Our morning favourite ! 

  2. Followed this exactly other than using old-fashioned oats instead of instant. Came out like mush on the bottom with the bananas. Need to cook longer?
    Or just mixed up better? How do you keep the bananas from being mush?
    It tastes okay but the texture is a big no as is. Can’t figure out how everyone got theirs crispy?

  3. Can steel cut oats be used in this?  I absolutely love the recipe but would like to use healthier steel cut oats.  

  4. I could not subscribe.. keeps stating not valid.

  5. Followed the recipe exactly and this is the best oatmeal! Almost a crisp. Made it in advance and refrigerated. Then I warmed a portion in the air fryer for just a bit more cripness and it’s so good with coffee for breakfast. Wish my mom had known about this all those mornings when we were kids. Five stars for sure. One possible tweak would be to add just a bit of lemon juice.

  6. Can I use almond milk?

  7. Will this recipe work well with regular oats? Thank you! 

  8. My family really enjoys this recipe. We actually use Old Fashion Oats, then honey and Almond milk are our choices. I made it with sliced strawberries this past week for the first time, it was devine! 😋🫐🍓🍌

  9. Can you make this recipe into muffins?

    • Good recipe. I used half maple syrup half honey and I mined all the wet and dry Ingredients together in 1 bowl added the other blueberries and poured it over the baked bananas. Worked out well!

  10. I made this for after our 25K trail race. It was perfect! Everyone loved it.  Totally hit all the spots.  Thank you! 

  11. I love, love, love this recipe! The last time I made it, instead of banana’s I used a can of no sugar added peaches. My new favorite breakfast! Love the peaches in it! Taste like a dessert!

  12. I have been making this recipe for years, it’s one of my favorite special breakfasts. After trying it as written to start, I now do the following: mix the wet and dry ingredients, no nuts (I’m just not a nut person) and leave out the vanilla (I thought it made everything taste too much like vanilla which wasn’t what I wanted). I also like to add raspberries on top. I’ll make this even without banana, so I just skip the whole first part and then do just blueberries and raspberries on top, I love it. It’s great reheated too. Having tried other baked oatmeal recipes, the ratios here for the oatmeal part are perfect for me so I keep coming back.

  13. Can you convert the cooking times for baking this recipe using ramakins in an air fryer?
    It would be so nice to have individual portions and the ability to use the air fryer!

  14. Loved this recipe except for the soggy bottom. used frozen blueberries. Wondering how I can fix this or what I did wrong?

  15. How would I adjust this to use with old fashioned oats? 

  16. This was delicious! I will definitely be making this again.

  17. I’m using old fashioned oats this time, after using the quick oats called-for in the recipe my first time. I loved the dish, but would have liked just a little more density. You don’t have to be a baker to make this dish. It accepts all sorts of substitutions of fruits, nuts, cinnamon amount, liquid choices like almond milk (I wonder how it would taste with goat milk).

  18. Unfortunately this was a miss for me. I cooked it for 45 minutes and it was still a mushy mess. Glad so many others liked it but it didn’t work out for me. 

  19. So I just plugged this into my WW app. I am on blue plan..came to 9 points not 6. Not sure why there’s such a hugh discrepancy. Oatmeal in very good.

  20. Delicious and so easy to make! Perfect for on-the-go weekday breakfasts.

  21. This will be the second time I make this recipe, LOVE IT! I used maple syrup (only 1/4 cup), doubled the recipe for meal prep and quick, delicious and healthy breakfast from the freezer. Thank you!!

  22. Does this recipe require quick cooking oats or can you use regular. I normally don’t buy the quick cooking oats. I would live to try this. Looks delish. Let me know please.

  23. If there are leftovers, should it be refrigerated?

  24. This was absolutely amazing. Mine came out and tasted like delicious most blueberry muffins. I didn’t use the nuts and only used half the honey but it was still outstanding. This is only the second oatmeal bake I have made but its officially the one to beat. Thank you!!!

  25. The hype is real! This was delicious, warm and satisfying. Used frozen wild blueberries (did not thaw first) and sugar-free maple syrup to sweeten. Great use for the aging bananas in your life. Thanks Gina!

  26. Do you think I can make with the single packets of plain oatmeal?? 

  27. I absolutely love this. Subbed Maple Grove sugar free maple syrup for the honey and a serving comes out to 1 point on purple.
    It’s also amazing as written in the recipe!

  28. This is really good. I needed to use some Gala apples and over ripe bananas.  I’ve been looking for something I can grab and go as I’m very bad about taking time to eat in the morning.  It was very good warm yesterday when I made it and this morning I tried it cold and decided it didn’t need to be heated. 

  29. I made this last weekend and loved it! Tried it again this weekend but substituted an apple (chopped) for the banana. Both methods were delicious! Biggest problem is keeping the husband from eating all the leftovers the same day! 🙂

  30. Love, Love this recipe, you can even cut recipe in half if you live alone and put it in a loaf pan. This is such a healthy recipe. I don’t use all the sweetener I just drizzle some real maple syrup or real honey, it is all you need as the banana is sweet. YUMMY!!!

  31. Sorry, I disagree with the step to layer dry then wet.  Why not stir both together?  I had dry pockets of oatmeal.  

  32. I just made this and it’s amazing! I forgot to buy nuts, so those weren’t included and I sprinkled a tiny bit of brown sugar on top when it was done- so yummy! And it seems pretty healthy!

  33. I just made this recipe and it is so delicious! I will be making this weekly. Thanks for your recipes.

  34. Excellent! Will be making this often. Great for meal prep!

  35. I always just combine the wet and dry ingredients then pour over the bananas and fruit.  Makes it way more evenly distributed.  I also switch up the fruit based on what frozen pack I have at the time.  Frozen cherries and blackberries is an excellent combo! 

  36. Wonderful! This plus all the recipes I have tried from this site are very very good. 

  37. I’m a single gal and love some of your lunch and dinner recipes! Usually, I lean towards the dinner options you provide and can figure out if it can be stored and will reheat easily. But this one… can it be frozen and reheated? Does it have to be stored in the fridge and eaten right away? I’ve not ever made this type of breakfast dish before and I’d really like to give it a go. Thanks for the help!

    • Haha! Never mind! I went back and read the entire post and answered my own question! I should probably do that going forward! lol

  38. To reduce the SP, I leave out the honey and nuts. I LOAD it up with fruit and make sure that my bananas are sweet. I only had old fashioned oats so I soaked them first. It is a soft dish, not firm like a granola bar.

    I do just mix it all together and bake it.

    I am wondering if you took cooked oatmeal, added the eggs, fruit, cinnamon/vanilla and baking powder then baked, would it be a 0 SP dish on purple?

    I do enjoy this for breakfast or a snack later in the day!

  39. This is INCREDIBLE!!!!!! best oatmeal bake I’ve ever made! The quick oats make it so mach better!

  40. This was fantastic. I made it with peach slices in place of the bananas, and added a couple more peach slices on top for good measure. The oat texture was quite fluffy, bursting with blueberries with a nice crunch from the walnuts.

  41. 8 year old called this the best breakfast ever. 😀

  42. Another delicious recipe from Skinny Taste! I took a few shortcuts with the recipe and it worked for me.

    – My bananas were sweet enough so I didn’t add the honey to save on SP.
    – I had old fashioned oats instead of quick oats so I soaked them in the liquid mixture for about 15 minutes while the bananas roasted.

    The oatmeal bakes up very thin and it wasn’t filling enough for me so I ended up cutting it into 5 pieces and ate one each day this week. It does reheat very well.

  43. Best banana oatmeal blueberry recipe I’ve used! I’ve tried many different recipes usually they mix all ingredients together but tends to be good right after baking and dry the next day. This turned out super moist with the right amount of sweetness. Didn’t have that many blue berries so chopped up some strawberries for first part with banana then topped with blue berries. Also used chopped cashews. turned out great! Highly recommend 

  44. This oatmeal is DELICIOUS! I used old fashioned oats and added 2 Tbs chia seeds. This is definitely a repeater recipe! YUM!

  45. Delicious! I swapped the honey for maple syrup and left out the nuts so I could share with my 10-month old. I also added a big scoop of non-fat Greek yogurt for some extra protein. Looking forward to leftovers tomorrow! 

  46. I only have a 9×9 non stick metal pan. Will that work??

  47. Mushy. Would not make this again.

  48. Hi there! This recipe looks delish!! Myvquestion is…if I used frozen blueberries or strawberries, should I thaw them first?

    Can’t wait to try this!

  49. Nice addCaition to our breakfast options. Better with a yogurt topping.

  50. Can this be made with frozen mixed berries? Trying to stay away from the grocery store!

  51. your recipes are great, but way too high in sugar, for desserts and breakfast.  How is this skinny?

    • The sugar is coming from the fruit which is natural sugar.

      • The sugar is coming from the honey (as well as some from fruit). Personally, I will use much less honey.

    • You can make w/o honey as the bananas are sweet. I personally just drizzle w/real honey or real maple syrup. 

    • Compared to another similar baked oatmeal recipe that had 449 calories per serving, this is skinny. This has less sugar, less fat (the other recipe used 3 T coconut oil or melted buter and 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup), and half the calories. It may not be your version of skinny, but for someone trying to break a waffle or donut habit, this is way better. Her recipes are “skinny” compared to a regular recipe for a similar meal. If you don’t like it, don’t make it. I lost 94 pounds using her recipes, so they can’t be too bad.

      • That’s wonderful on your weight loss! (Hope u don’t mind me commenting) I’m looking to lose weight, live alone and would love some suggestions on your fav skinny taste recipes (or others) if you don’t mind?  Thanks!

  52. I love this baked oatmeal recipe. I have all the ingredients except quick oats. Just have old fashion oats. Can you substitute?  And how?  Trying to stay out of stores and most stores are out of oatmeal anyway. I do have bananas and blueberries. Thank you. 

    • I wish someone would answer about using rolled oats rather than quick. I had all the ingredients ready to go this morning, then re-read the recipe which calls for quick oats. Darn!

      • I use regular oats all the time. I mix them with the milk and let it sit while the bananas cook for the bottom layer. 

  53. I took out the honey and used 3 Tbsp of sugar free Toroni almond syrup.  I swapped 30 cal almond milk for the ff milk.  This reduces the points on purple to just the walnuts.  I love this and don’t think I will ever have to throw away another banana because it’s too ripe!💜 whole tray is 8 pots. 

  54. This was so easy to make and delicious! It was a great change for breakfast. Very filling too.

  55. So yummy!!

    • My kids LOVED this.
      I subbed thin sliced apples for the bananas and real maple syrup for the honey.
      I wish I would have baked it longer as it seemed a bit soggy to me. When I went back and looked I saw that it said 30 *or until golden* and I just went with the 30 minutes. I also accidentally mixed the oatmeal with the milk mixture and then poured it over, not sure if that would make a difference in texture.
      Next time I may leave out the maple syrup/honey and just drizzle it over before eating.

  56. Any suggestions on replacing egg?  I usually use apple sauce but probably won’t work in this case 

    • Flax egg. I tablespoon of flax meal with little bit of water and mix it, let sit for a min and you’re good to go.

  57. Can this be made with old fashioned or steel cut oats?

  58. This was really delicious. I would make it again. 

  59. I made these yesterday! Very yummy. I omitted the nuts and only used 2 tbsp on honey. Recipe builder shows it at 2 blue points for 1/6 of the recipe.

  60. If you omit the nuts, how many points on ww blue plan? Planning to make tomorrow am. Looks delish!!!!!

  61. I’m so pleased with this recipe. Perfect combination of berries, oats, nuts, with a hint of banana. As the recipe mentions, you could add different berries and switch out the pecans for walnuts or almonds. I would definitely make this as a regular dish for breakfast or brunch! Nicely done!

  62. I LOVED this recipe, although when I put the info in, it pointed out as 9 points on green?  What did I do wrong?

    • You have to put it in the recipe builder, not just type in the nutritional facts. That being said, I did that and calculated 5 on Green.

  63. Soooo good. Only substitution I made was to use almonds instead of walnuts and used a bit more than the recipe called for.  Will definitely make this again. 

  64. I made a mistake while making this (didn’t read the directions first!) and added everything together instead of pouring wet ingredients over top. I purposely also mashed the banana into the oats since I’m not a huge banana lover, but I do enjoy it in baked goods for the sweetness. I do love vanilla and cinnamon so I added extra. It was AMAZING, and I’m not a big banana or oatmeal person!! This will probably be in my weekly rotation every week it’s so delicious! I could eat the entire pan!! Thank you Gina!! 

  65. new here.. if its 6 points on green.. is that the hole dish or each serving.. ? also how does one enter this on the app?

  66. Absolutely delicious, especially with a couple tablespoons of vanilla yogurt on top.  

    Next time I will use a bit less banana. My family is all weird about mushy textures. We found it a bit too soft on the bottom. We will definitely be making this again. 

    • I made it without the nuts. When I entered the recipe without nuts  into the WW recipe builder it was 4 points when the recipe serves 8 and 5 points when it serves 6.  

  67. Made the recipe as stated minus the walnuts. When I entered the nutrition information in WW, came up as 9 points on the green plan.

  68. I have gout and need to have low sodium, what can I take out of this recipe to lower it please?

    • I have to follow a low sodium diet also and 77mgs is low. (I’m supposed to stay under 1200 mg) There are only two salt sources in the recipe. Baking soda and salt, just don’t add either. That really all you can do to modify it. but it could affect the flavor or texture since baking soda is a leavening agent.

      • I also eat very low sodium, I leave out salt and do use the baking soda you can always cut the baking soda amount in half.

  69. Yes, curious about points on purple plan?

  70. Can I use apples at the bottom instead of bananas? If so what would be the best apple to use?

  71. Could I use an egg substitute (egg replacer like Ener-G) 

  72. This was really good. I made it the way the recipe states the first time and tried it the way some other reviewers advised the second time with mixing it all together and not baking the bananas first. We liked it better with the bananas baked first. Either way it was delicious and it keeps you feeling satisfied. 

  73. Yummmm I want to eat this everyday! 

  74. Made this today and it was amazing, I did use frozen blueberries, and mine set up fine, cooked 35 versus the 30 minutes. Only change I made was using maple syrup instead of the honey.

  75. I decided I Need to prep healthy breakfast because I found myself grabbing bagels more often than not. I LOVE this! It’s delicious and so convenient, I’ve got it all prepped in the fridge ready to grab on my way to work in the morning! My husband had a slice for dessert last night! This is going to be my go to breakfast! Can’t wait To try different fruit variations. I’m a banana lover, so that will be a constant!

  76. Can I use regular  old fashioned oats instead of quick oats?

  77. This was so easy and came out perfect.

  78. The entire family loved this.  We ate it warm over greek yogurt for a protein boost.  We all agreed we’d leave out the nuts next time.  Used bananas, strawberries and blueberries.

  79. Delicious!! So easy and a hit for everyone in my family. I used almond milk, worked great. I also substituted maple syrup  for honey so my baby under 1 could also have some (no honey until over 1!). I’ll make this all the time!

  80. Can you substitute the milk with anything else?

  81. This was delicious! Tasted like dessert. We put some plain yogurt on it, too. 

  82. This looks great but I really do NOT like bananas.   Do you think I could use any other fruit… nectarines or would that be too watery?   Thanks 

  83. Can I use a metal pan instead of ceramic? Will it make a difference, if so how?

  84. One of my favorites!! I use pecans because I’m not a huge fan of walnuts and added some Cardamom for a little added pizzazz!

  85. Absolutely delicious. Followed the recipe to a T and it was perfect. Trying to get new breakfast ideas for my kids before school and my 3 picky eaters loved this and added bonus- the house smells amazing. The best part was after my son finished he said, “I’d eat this again!” Coming from him who is just not a breakfast fan, it’s a big win. Thank you for providing such healthy, delicious, easy to follow recipes. 

  86. My husband asked me to make this again, for dessert!

  87. I left this out overnight, is that okay?

  88. Do you recover with foil after you pour in the oat/ milk mixtures? Can’t wait to eat it!! 

  89. Could you use granola instead of oatmeal? I know the calories would go up, but not a big fan of oatmeal!

  90. I love this recipe for meal prep for breakfasts or lunches.  It freezes well too.  The second time I made it I mashed the bananas and mixed in with the wet ingredients then mixed wet and dry ingredients together in a bowl.  I skipped the step of baking the bananas.  I liked it even better this time as I wasn’t a big fan of the consistency or appearance of the mushy bananas on the bottom.  Otherwise made just as directed.  So good!  

  91. Unfortunately my was a mushy mess after following all directions. Also tried adding 10 minutes to the bake time.I used frozen blueberries, and am wondering if I should have used less than the indicated fresh amount?

    • I always find it best to defrost and dry out frozen blueberries before using them in this recipe, pancakes, breads, etc. Hope that helps!

  92. Your recipe looks really good, can you chill them and will they keep for a few days in the fridge?

  93. Top of the list recipe for me! Simple to make and simply delicious. I used sugar free honey, I’m always watching my sugar intake. Will make this again and again. 

  94. I would love to see a Instant Pot version of this!

  95. Delicious !  I added Lily’s chips  and sugar free honey and turn out great !  Thank you for another healthy & tasteful recipe 

  96. I made this for Mother’s Day. Everyone loved it. I baked it for a total of 40 min and tripled the nuts – which I’m sure killed the WW points allotment 🙂 but everyone loved it! This is a keeper! Thank you!

  97. Would I be able to substitute Splenda for the honey to lower the points?

  98. Meh, this was very very bland.  A LOT more salt would help it.  Next time I would also double the walnuts, there wasn’t quite enough to have any sort of satisfying crunch. 

    Also the top says 35 min cook time, however there is a 15 min bake of the bananas, and then 30 min bake of the oatmeal (which actually takes more like 40 min to set).  So it is at least 45 min to bake. 

    Also, what is the purpose of spreading the oats then pouring the milk mixture over?  Why not combine them first to make sure they are well-mixed, then spread it all over the bananas – way easier. 

    Also it took 3 bananas to cover the bottom with measuring the thickness to half an inch in an 8×8 pan.  It seemed very thick.  I think 1/4 inch would be better.  Also – why not incorporate the bananas into the bake?

  99. THIS IS AMAZING!!! Seriously SOOOO good! I’d never know it wasn’t loaded with refined sugar and fat! Even my non-healthy eating husband loved it (MAJOR WIN!). I drizzled a tiny bit of almond butter on my portion, and that was great too – but also 100% delicious by itself. Thanks for another winner! 

  100. Can I use 1 minute oats?

  101. I baked it for 30 minutes and then another 10 minutes and it still did not set.   I am hoping it sets while it cools.

  102. This is amazing! As a dietitian I am always looking for healthy recipes for myself and my clients that are quick and easy- so no excuses for not eating breakfast! ! Love this!

  103. I always make this with apples. I also use a flax egg which works great for a vegan option.

    • did you cook your apples in advance as for the bananas ? how thick was your apples ? and did you bake it for the same time ?
      thank in Advance

  104. Can you leave the bananas out of the bottom?

  105. Hello,
    if i am using a gluten, will it affects the calories?
    Thank you

  106. Can I freeze individual pieces of this? I love this oatmeal and all your recipes Gina!

    • It freezers beautifully! I freeze portions and then when I want some I take a frozen block out of the freezer and microwave it for 3 minutes and it is PERFECT, just like the day I made it!

  107. I sprinkled brown sugar to the top of it. Very good

  108. My daughters boyfriend is vegan what can I replace for the egg?

  109. This was so delicious and easy! I used frozen blueberries since that’s what i had & vanilla almond milk and it turned out great. I probably baked it for an extra 5ish min to firm it up a bit more too. Definitely going in the breakfast rotation. Delicious!

  110. Can I use steel cut oats?

  111. Can this recipe be prepped the night before, refrigerated and baked the next morning?

  112. Can frozen berries be used?

  113. De-Lish! Made this last night to have for breakfast today. So so good! I am not always a fan of oatmeal, but this was delicious. Very easy to make and made our house smell amazing. I reheated in the microwave for 1 minute and it turned out almost as good as fresh from the oven.

  114. Made this last week and added peaches since I didn’t have enough blueberries and I think I ate it every morning. Making another batch right now, but with cinnamon apples instead of berries. Next week will be peaches. Good stuff!

  115. Can I make this with strawberries and blueberries? Would I still use cinnamon? 

  116. I just made this for a mid-morning snack. . Not only does my house smell amazing, it’s so delicious! I used Vanilla Flavored Flax milk in it too. DELISH! and incredibly easy to make. I highly recommend. I am going to make it next time, in ramekins for dessert options. Curious to see if I can refrigerate and re-heat. Will advise!

  117. I made this today!  What a wonderful, healthy, low calorie treat!

  118. Can I use Original Oats instead of Instant or quick?

  119. Oh my Goodness I think I just died and went to heaven. This is the best oatmeal I have ever tried. I used to make Amish Cranberry Walnut baked oatmeal a lot but. this has this best

  120. Made this just now and it turned out great. Easy, healthy, definitely will make again in the future. 

  121. This was easy peasy and very satisfying. I  think I will eat the remainder as dessert with a little cool whip!

  122. This recipe is a keeper! Cannot wait to make it again with different fruits; love that it is interchangeable! By the way, I used coconut milk as that is what I had on hand and it was delicious! Thank you!

  123. So delicious and so easy to make!! 

  124. OMG was this ever delicious! I used maple syrup instead of honey as that’s what I had on hand. So glad I froze those blueberries! Also, I toasted the pecans first. Loved it!

  125. I made this successfully with quick steel cut oats (Trader Joe’s), blueberries, blackberries and bananas. I’m not going to lie, I was very worried after pouring the milk mixture over the oats. It looked nothing like Gina’s photos. There was so much milk that the berries were floating in it. BUT it turned out delicious. I don’t believe this recipe is supposed to have a bar/cookie texture (like some commenters were expecting); mine certainly doesn’t. But it’s true to its name – baked oatmeal. Would definitely make again! Yum!

  126. This is absolutely wonderful. I will definitely make this again!

  127. absolutely loved this and ate it for days right out of the fridge…….

  128. I made the pumpkin version a month ago. My three year old asked me for oatmeal ‘cake’ yesterday, so we are trying this version this morning. Thank you so much for breakfast ‘cake’!

  129. What do I need to change if I want to use a glass dish?

  130. Oh boy is this delicious! I can’t wait to eat these for breakfast all week.

  131. Absolutely wonderful! I left out the nuts to save a few calories and used old fashioned oats (not quick) plus frozen blueberries. Turned out perfectly with those slight variations and my house smells like a bakery.

    For those who are disappointed, baked oatmeal is not equal to an oatmeal cookie. Imagine the softness of an oatmeal with a smooth bread pudding like consistency in the middle, then golden brown oats that are a little more firm on top. Will make again perhaps even Christmas morning.

  132. I made this today as part of my weekly meal prep. I wasn’t thrilled with the consistency of it, I was thinking it would turn out more like a “breakfast bar”, but it was mushy.  My hubby and I taste tested it, we agreed the flavor was good but it was too mushy and we threw it away.

  133. Wow! I first tried the pumpkin and was not impressed probably because as you cannot get canned pumpkin in Mexico I used just pureed one and it probably was lacking sugar. This however. WOW! I used instant oats since quick oats again do not exist in this country and frozen blueberries since regular ones are very expensive here and I figured since they were going to be baked it would not matter much. I used sweetened almond vanilla milk and added a bit of stevia, used maple instead of honey and just one tablespoon to cut down the total carbs. Made them in individual ramekins. Literally delicious, we have our first cold front in Mexico City and this hit the spot, so fluffy and satifying, basically like the best muffin I have ever had but without any added fat! Thank you, you made a Mexican very happy. Making this every week.

  134. Worked a treat using frozen wild blueberries. I also substituted maple syrup – had no honey around at the time. And I used almond milk. Great!

  135. The best comfort food! Great fall food. Make me smile food!

  136. It was delicious! Used a honey crisp apple instead of a banana. I felt like I was eating dessert for breakfast! 

  137. The recipe builder in the WW app or website will tell you what the points are if you make changes. It’s really easy to use.

    I reduced the honey by 1/2, no nuts and cut into 8 because I’m horrible at division and have my own point value for these bars, which are delicious!

    My only other change is that I do think they are mushy so I’m going to heat it in a dry skillet tomorrow, to firm up the bottom a bit.

  138. This was great! I used 365 (Whole Foods brand) Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (not quick cooking) since they were one of the few brands that tested zero for traces of weed killer! They still baked no problem. I also used half the amount of honey figuring those who like it sweeter could just drizzle a little more on top if they liked.  Personally I could use more cinnamon but that’s just me ?

  139. What is the consistency of this?   I’m not a fan of regular oatmeal. 

    • This had consistency of a bread pudding to me. Kinda custardy. It was not muffin type or dry if that makes any sense. Definitely need a fork or spoon to eat

  140. Can u add protein powder? Or would that mess with consistency too much

  141. Delicious!! I just used blueberries and cut amount of honey in half. 

  142. Can you double this but still skew it in the 8×8 pan? Mine was so thin!

  143. This is absolutely amazing. I ate it as dessert warmed up wirh fat free Cool whip on top.

  144. Tried the basic recipe and love it! Will try other combinations too.

  145. Can this be frozen ahead of time? If so, does it change the cooking times!? Thanks!

  146. Excellent and easy—perfect for using over ripe bananas.  Made it for our easy Sunday morning.  

  147. I made this with strawberries, bananas, & blueberries & we loved it! I really didn’t measure the fruit, cinnamon, & walnuts either…very easy & adapable?

  148. Hi what is the importance of mixing the egg and milk separately and pouring it on top of the oatmea? Can’t I just mix everything together what what happened?

  149. Hi. I have to make this without nuts. My daughter is allergic to nuts. How many points would this recipe be without the nuts? Thank you. Looks yummy. Like all your recipes…

  150. When I put the nutrition info into the WW app it comes up to 9 points per serving! A big difference from the listed points here.

    • Hi Sally! You MUST use recipe builder when getting points. The SmartPoints® calculator isn’t meant for recipes and will often give you the wrong points (usually higher) because it’s counting 0 points foods such as eggs, chicken, fruits and vegetables. So if you see a recipe with a SmartPoints® value that’s different from what the calculator tells you, that is why.

      The only accurate way to determine any recipe’s SmartPoints® value is to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers website (Click on “My Foods,” select “Recipe,” and click “Create a recipe.”)

  151. Substituted shredded unsweetened coconut for the walnuts and coconut extract for the vanilla extract just because that is what we had on hand. A lovely, relatively healthy dish.

  152. Loved it and so did my company

  153. Delicious. A Saturday morning favorite

  155. Delicious! I made this with Almond milk, cut the honey in half, and added a Tbsp of ground flax. This will definitely be on my go to list!

  156. Can I use a Pyrex dish verses ceramic?

  157. I don’t like nuts so I’m wondering if the freestyle points values changes if I leave the nuts out? Thanks!

  158. I made this today for Easter brunch. I substituted raspberries instead of blueberries. Did anyone bake it longer than 30 minutes? Mine was mushy in the middle so I baked it 10 minutes longer.  I will definitely make this again. 

  159. Oh my! I just made this Baked Oats this morning and it sure is yummy. I followed the recipe to a T and it turned out delicious. I like how it’s not too sweet. It can be eaten as a breakfast, or you can divide the portions even smaller for 2 or 3-point snacks or desserts. My kids loved this, too;one had a bit of cream poured on top. I’m looking forward to trying this recipe again with maple syrup and other fruit. 

  160. Can’t wait to make for Easter brunch with my family this year! Quick question: can it be made the night before? If so, should I make the dish completely and then reheat in the oven? Thanks!

  161. Can I make this this night before and then put in the oven the next day to warm through?

  162. I have made this twice. Once as written…GREAT.. Then once with changes – still GREAT (sugar free maple syrup instead of honey and no nuts. also just mashed the bananas into the milk mixture and added right to the oats…mixed and poured. MUCH easier than the banana pre-baking) This is a very, very good recipe. I could eat it for breakfast OR dessert. Thanks!

  163. I am obsessed with this! I make it every week! Thank you!

  164. Oh my gosh!  I  am teleworking today and made this as a treat!  I am having this with some Fage.  It is heavenly! 

  165. double recipe

  166. Can we use regular old fashion oats with this recipe?

  168. When do I add the rest of the blueberries?

  169. Can steel cut oats be used instead of quick oats?

  170. Could I replace the honey with Stevia?  I’m a diabetic and want to try this but I have to watch my sugars.

    • I’m wondering the same due to a diabetic husband. I guess I could use the sugar free pancake syrup for the honey. Gina  what are your thoughts on making this more diabetic friendly?

    • I’m willing to bet you could try any sweetener. Or, try the recipe without any honey/sweetener at all and sprinkle whatever you want on top of your portion just before eating. 

  171. This recipe is so tasty!!  We made it last night and heated it up this morning….

  172. I made this recipe today just as is, it’s very good. I like that it’s not sweet tasting. I’m looking forward to having some in the morning with my coffee. Thanks for the recipe!

  173. Just plain awesome! Used mixed frozen berries, apples and walnuts. Very satisfying! All Gina’s recipes are fabulous 🙂

  174. this was excellent, easy to make and good for a few mornings on the go too

  175. A simple substitute for an egg is to stir a teaspoon of chia seeds into about 1/4 cup of water. Wait a few minutes and it will become thickened to the consistency of an egg. This binds pretty well.

  176. I can’t have eggs bc of lent period.. what can I use instead? Thanks 

  177. Any suggestions for how to replace the egg? We have an egg allergy.

  178. I was wondering if I make this with apples instead of bananas can it be frozen after? I am alone this would be great if I could…just not sure

  179. I made this last night but couldn’t wait for breakfast to try a bite.  It was delicious and my house smelled so good when I opened the oven.  It was just as good this morning reheated in the microwave.

  181. This is SO good!

  182. Can you omit the nuts?  How many points without the nuts?

    • I would like to omit the pecans too. How many points would it be?

    • Just look at your WW points to see what 1/4 cup nuts is worth and subtract that from your recipe. 1/4 pecans is 6 points. So if the whole recipe is 6 servings at 6 pts each, then not using pecans reduces each portion to 5 pts each. Just do the math!

  183. Have you ever used molasses instead of

  184. What is the serving size for the points listed ? Thanks 🙂

  185. I didn’t have any bananas so I replaced them with peaches. So so so good!

  186. Pingback: Be good to your Heart this February! – Napa Healthy Bodies Coalition

  187. I made this on Sunday for breakfast and it is wonderful.! I pre-portioned the leftovers for this week and they reheat beautifully. Mine needed a few minutes longer in the oven and then I let it sit for 5 minutes before serving. Definitely a keeper. and 6 SP’s well spent.

  188. So yummy! Not a banana lover and I really liked this recipe. The recipe suggests that you use really ripe bananas….which mines were not super ripe so they didn’t have an overwhelming banana taste. My sister made it with ripe bananas and I enjoyed it despite the strong warm bananas, though I will always use under ripe bananas going forward.

  189. Can you freeze this?

  190. I haven’t made baked oatmeal before so I don’t know what it’s supposed to taste like. But I was surprised at the consistency of this- it was definitely a more mushy than I expected. I think I had been expecting something closer to the consistency of he breakfast cookies. 
    I love so many skinnytaste recipes but not  sure I’ll be making this one again.

  192. Love love this recipe! I make this early in my week and have it for the next 5 days. It keeps well. Going to experiment with different fruit next time. I like to put a little plain non-fat greek yogurt on top. 

  193. Can you make this with quick cooking steel cut oats?

  194. This was a disappointment and waste of good info ingredients

  195. There are only two of us.  How long will it be ok in refrigerator?

  196. I made this recipe this morning just as it’s directed and it’s delicious! I added it into my food tracker on the WW app and it changed the SP to 9 instead of 6 per serving. It changed when I added in the sugars. Please advise!

  197. Call me crazy, but this is awesome with a pinch of cayenne.

  199. How many freestyle points would this recipe have?

  200. So I made this in an 8×8 dish. It came out crispy on top but mushy on bottom. Is this normal due to the bananas? Or is my oven not cooking evenly?

  201. Just made this – didn’t have bananas on hand so I used a Granny Smith apple. DELICIOUS!!  Made exactly as written although I did serve with a spoonful of Greek yogurt. Will definitely keep this in the breakfast rotation!

  202. Excellent breakfast! I can’t believe there is no sugar in it as it has a lovely sweet taste! I’m not a big banana fan, but they are delicious in here. Thank you!

    • I think that because of the honey, it makes it sweet, but would prefer less grams of sugar. I may omit the honey and see how it tastes   Maybe a sprinkle of brown sugar as it’s served will suffice. Thoughts, Gina?? 

      • I make a similar version of this in muffin form, and I put 3-4 pureed dates in as my sweetener (in addition to the bananas). _I_ think it tastes lovely but it is definitely less sweet than most breakfast oatmeal/muffins. I tried it with no dates, just bananas and it was too plain tasting for me. I’ve been slowly reducing my added sugars for a while, so I’m used to it. I just did a quick calculation with 4 dates and it looks like about 8 grams of added sugar per muffin – all from fruit.

    • Just be careful….there are 23 grams of sugar in this recipe. Honey has a very high sugar content.

  203. Could I use almond milk?

  204. I made this for breakfast this week with my modifications (low FODMAP, no dairy, gluten free, etc) and it was DELICIOUS. I subbed pure maple syrup for honey/agave because I can’t have those and it was so incredibly delicious! I’m making a second tray tonight so I have it for the next few days! Great morning breakfast for me before running!

    • Made this tonight for a quick and healthy breakfast option throughout the week for my kids…hope it makes its until the morning!! Made a few adjustments to make GF and used an almond/coconut milk blend, Gina and the skinnytaste recipes have helped fall back in love cooking again.

  205. This is my new go to for breakfast meal prep. Thanks for all of your wonderful recipes. You’ve really helped make my healthy eating and weight loss journey easy and delicious! 

  206. Delicious! Served Christmas morning. Everyone loved it. I added a dollop of plain Greek yogurt on top.

  211. What could I sub for eggs? I am feeding a crowd next weekend and several are vegan. This might be a good option for them for breakfast. 

    • There’s so many egg subtitiutes. I use a flax or chia seed “egg.” I’ve also used applesauce as well as water, baking soda and vegetable oil. All work great! 

  212. Gina, can I make this with old fashioned oats instead of quick cooking?

  213. What if I have regular rolled oats instead of quick oats??

  214. I just made this baked oatmeal with blueberries. I loved it and my husband did as well. Oh so good!

  215. Does it need to be refrigerated after wards for storage? 

  216. Have you made this with frozen blueberries? 

  217. Hi, this recipe looks great! Just wondering if you could use water instead of milk? 

  218. This is so delicious – I’m making it for the second time in 2 days!  Thanks for another keeper, Gina!!!

  219. I make this a lot and really love it! I do sub out the bananas for apples as I am not a big fan of warm mushy bananas. Everything else is perfect just the way it is!

  220. Do u cover it the second time in the oven?

  221. I don’t do bananas AT ALL.  What other foods would be good to substitute in its place.  I love blueberries and would like to try this out.  Please help.

  222. Love this recipe. Curious why skinny taste will not allow me to pin a specific recipe from facebook? When I try to pin this ( and lots of other recipes) it just takes me to “follow skinny”. I already do, but I would really like to tag the specific recipe… very frustrating!!!

  231. I make this all the time! Over the past 5 yrs I’ve tried many different fruit variations, but the original is my favorite. Out of laziness, I always cook the fruit first, but then mix all remaining ingredients together at once & pour on top. I don’t separate the wet & dry. Comes out the same! Delicious as always! thank you for your awesome recipes.

  232. Great recipe…I make this one all the time! Skip the nuts if you have an allergy…I have also substituted maple syrup for the honey and sometimes add coconut.

  233. Pingback: Healthy Breakfasts You’ll Love – Transparent

  234. This is amazing.  I made it this morning with a couple of minor revisions since I didn’t have all the ingredients on hand.  I used frozen blueberries instead of fresh and I used maple syrup instead of honey.  I cut the maple syrup down to 1/8 of a cup.  I also added sliced almonds instead of the walnuts or pecans.  

    It was so delicious.  It smells wonderful while it is baking.  Honestly, it was hard to keep myself from eating the entire pan!

    • Hi DH, did you thaw the frozen berries first? I don’t have fresh berries so I wasn’t sure. I may also cut down the maple syrup/agave/honey.

  235. My daughter has a peanut and tree nut allergy so how can I substitute the nut ingredient? Thanks

  236. So, it took just 4-1/2 years to find and make this, but what a find! It tastes as wonderful as my house smelled while baking it, and I “sampled” my way right through 1-1/2 servings before forcing myself to stop. My bananas were so ripe that I didn’t need to cook them down first. Just layered everything together, put all the walnuts on top (so they would be nice and toasty) and placed it in the oven. Took just a little over 30 minutes to arrive at YUM!

  237. Could you assemble this ahead of time and do the last baking step later?
    It looks delicious!

  238. Where has this recipe been all my life?? Made it last night and reheated it this morning.. WOW! Absolutely delicious.  Will be making this again soon!

  239. I just baked this but I tweaked it to add more fiber and calcium:  Step 1 is the same.  In Step 2 I used quick cook STEEL oats and pumpkin  pie spice, with pecans.  Step 3: Biggie:  Instead of milk I used sweetened light vanilla soy milk–1 1/4 cups to compensate for the denser oates.  NO honey, NO extract.  This can also be done with sweetened vanilla almond milk, etc.  Same cooking time–it was perfect.  6 oz container of blueberries is perfect.  I’m 64 and need the higher fiber and calcium.

  240. It would be nice if you had a print mode.  Maybe I missed it but couldn’t find it. Thank you

  241. It says that the recipe is under 30 min, but it takes 45 min just bake everything not even counting the prep time !?

  242. Great recipe! I used Quaker old fashioned oats (which are 5 mins vs quick oats which take 1). I didn’t have any vanilla so substituted 1/2 tsp almond extract. I also didn’t have any nuts so sprinkled some granola on top. Served with fat free half and half. We devoured it!

  243. I make this a couple times a month but I use apples instead of banana since I eat it throughout the week. this recipe is delicious! Thank you!!!!

  244. I can’t eat oats. Could I substitute quinoa or something else for the oats?

  245. I have tried this and it was very good as have been all your recipes I have tried. Thinking of leaving out the honey, thinking of putting in extra eggs or oatmeal, any suggestions. I think the 1/4c honey is 16points, so wanting to spend my points more wisely.  Any suggestions. Thank you.

  246. I come up with a total of 9 SP when I enter the nutritional info in to my WW calculator. Help?

    • I also got 9 SP.  Would love to figure out why! I even omitted the honey to be cautious, but curious how Gina for only 6. Such a yummy breakfast!

  247. My grocery store was out of blueberries, so the first time, I tried it with strawberries. I sliced the strawberries on the bottom layer and cut them into chunks to sprinkle on top and I used honey. Today I made it with blueberries and agave nectar. I like the classic strawberry-banana combo better, but prefer agave nectar, as I found the taste of the honey overwhelming. I love the combination of apricots and cherries, so I am going to try that when those fruits are in season. This is a really great and filling breakfast, love the simplicity of the recipe.

  248. I absolutely love this recipe!!! I have made a few different fruit combos and enjoyed them all. Gina, I want to enter this as one of my favorite foods on my WW app but when I enter the nutrition values, it comes up as 9 points? Any ideas? I've checked and rechecked to make sure I entered the same values asabove. Are any of them maybe a misprint? I kind of hope so 🙂

  249. Respectfully, I see there are 22.8g of sugar per serving. Is that high if I'm trying to keep my weight down?

  250. How would this adapt to steel cut oats rather than quick cooking? I am preparing to move and need to use up the steel cut.

  251. I love this recipe but when I type it in to my WW calandar it comes up 9 points for 6 servings. :(. Still make it, just cut it smaller. This is on the brand new points plan.

  252. Just put 6 ramekins of this recipe in the oven…I usually don't change anything when I make a new recipe for the first time, but I used sliced almonds because I didn't have the nut in the recipe. I'm very excited to taste this!!!

  253. this was delicious! held up well the next day, too!

  254. Do you cover it again once you put it back into the oven?

  255. I made this today, with a few modifications because I'm watching my carb and sugar intake. I cut the honey in half and only used one banana. It was delicious just like everything else I've tried from this blog!! 🙂

  256. Hi, i'm new here… and my first time doing WW ( i just had my second baby 6 months ago) im excited about this blog, but i am confused about the serving size stuff… how does that work? i dont want to eat more than i supposed to and think its only a few points when its several!! Please help!

  257. If we are only supposed to put positive comments about this recipe on here. How are people gonna know how bad it is? It was awful, soggy and rubbery

  258. This was absolutely disgusting. Do not waste your time money or effort. What part was not soggy had the consistency of a rubber ball. I followed the directions to a tee. I think your friends posted all this BS about how good they are cause they suck.

  259. Great breakfast recipe! It's both healthy and delicious

  260. I love this so much. Even though the blueberries burst and kind of turned it gray. It tastes amazing as both breakfast and served with ice cream as dessert. Thank you again for another winning recipe!

  261. Can this or any of your other baked oatmeal recipes be prepared the night before and baked the following AM ???thanks

  262. This is a great and versitale recipe! I've made this in a number of different versions, for example: with and without blueberries, with apples, with other berries, with old fashioned rolled oats, with and without nuts, with coconut flakes… the list goes on. The leftovers are also very good cold, or you could just make it the evening before if you prefer it cold. Highly recommended! 🙂

  263. Made this for a work potluck breakfast this morning and it was a huge hit. Used blackberries instead of blueberries and it turned out delicious.

  264. How many calories (approximately) would this have if I substituted milk for almond milk?

  265. Found out about your website on WW boards. Made this today and it was very good. Your website looks great and the photographs make the food look very appetizing. I will be trying other recipes in the near future.

  266. Your website looks great. I want to make 'oatmeal' more interesting, and this is surely one of the BEST ways to go – not a blueberry fan, but I say YAY to bananas 😉

    Thank you so much


  267. Heya! For some reason, when I make this, the bananas always separate from the bottom. 🙁 Am I doing something wrong ? Should I make smaller slices? Should I put oatmeal below it?

  268. OH MY GOODNESS!!! SO AMAZINGLY GOOD! I just baked it and had a piece… this was supposed to be for breakfast at work all week… but I just ate about a third of the pan for supper!

  269. Made this recipe for breakfast this morning. It did not set quite as well as it should have, but it didn't matter to me. It was delicious! Perhaps it was a bit soft because I used Old Fashioned Oats instead of Quick Oats because that is what I had on hand. It was great topped with Non Fat Plain Greek Yogurt! This will be a regular breakfast for me.

  270. Absolutely wonderful I spray whipping cream on top. Heat it up the next day ,it is even good cold Yummy

  271. I was nervous about trying this.. but I baked it last night cut a piece and brought it to work this morning… Popped it in the microwave for 70 seconds and it was delicious. In case anyone needs to know.. it's fine without the nuts (my husband has diverticulitis so I don't cook with them ever) … and now my co-workers want me to bring them a piece tomorrow morning 🙂

  272. From what I have heard (from many visits to Canyon Ranch and listening to Dr. Oz) quick oats are pretty unhealthy… Could you use steel cut oats?

  273. My son has used all my quick cooking oats in his energy/protein shakes, and I am left with steel cut oats. I'm in the middle of the recipe now. Are there any additional steps I should take or adjustments when using the slow cooking oats? And I LOVE your site and recipes. So glad I stumbled upon it on Facebook today!

  274. My daughter and I love banana bread w/chocolate chips. I'm thinking of skipping the blueberries and adding a handful of dark chocolate chunks to the mix…

  275. This was very very good. I was out of blueberries, so I substituted frozen dark sweet cherries. I also used a combo of walnuts and pecans. Will definitely make this again!

  276. I made this two days in a row with different fruit. So yummy! I added shredded coconut. Love this recipe!

  277. I made this with blackberries since my grocery was out of blueberries and it was delicious, this is definitely going on regular rotation!

  278. I made this the other day, LOVE it!! Thank you for the wonderful recipe, I reviewed it on my blog 🙂

  279. Made this today, Good stuff! Can't wait to try it reheated.

  280. I'm going to try this. I will substitute milk with unsweetended vanilla almond milk though and it will be delicious!

  281. I mixed 1 whole ripe banana in the milk mixture to give the oatmeal a banana flavor, and wow, it came out delicious! Hands down, the best baked oatmeal I've ever had!

  282. This is yummy. Just made it and will definitely be making this again. I omitted the nuts and used unsweetened vanilla almond milk instead of regular milk, as that is what I had on hand. I calculated the calories as 165 per serving with the way I made it. I will definitely be trying this with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a dessert without the guilt. I want to play around with other fruit combinations as well. Yum!

  283. Best baked oatmeal ever! I made this using old fashioned oats so I added 2 or 3 Tbsp extra milk (almond milk) just in case the OF oats absorbed more liquid than the quick oats. Unfortunately, I was only able to salvage a small serving before my 2 very hungry 4 year olds devoured the entire batch. I will definitely make this again- thank you so much for all the great recipes.

  284. Just baked it tonite for breakfast tomorrow. It is amazing!!! yum!

  285. I made this and froze my leftovers. Grabbed one today and reheated it at work, tastes as great as the day I baked it! I froze it in a freezer ziplock bag and then reheated it in a microwave safe dish. I'm going to make more!!

  286. I just made it!!! It is so Yummy!!! I can't wait for my girls to try it tomorrow!!!

  287. Tried to post this yesterday but it didn't work. I usually make a baked French Toast for mother's Day. It is very fattening! This year I wanted something healthier so decided to try this baked oatmeal. I didn't think it would be very good, but I was so wrong. It was absolutely delicious! I couldn't stop eating it, and it's not an unhealthy thing to eat a lot of! So excited about this. Can't wait to make it again. Thanks Gina once again!

  288. I usually make a very fattening baked french toast for Mother's Day, but since I was trying to be healthier this year, I tried this baked oatmeal. I have to say I wasn't that psyched to make it, somehow I didn't think it would be that good. But I was WRONG!!! So delicious! I can't wait to make it again. Thank you so much Gina for helping me and my family eat healthier but still enjoy our food!

  289. Becki, here is a list of substitutions for eggs (which is not untypical, since many vegetarians/vegans do not eat them).

  290. Mine came out soggy as well. I am wondering if it is supposed to be re-covered with the foil when it's put back in the oven. That's the only thing I can think of.

  291. This is one of my favorite breakfasts! I make it on sunday evening and put it in individual containers to take to work for breakfast. I have a 5mo old so my mornings are a little busy and this is so easy and delicious…grab and go! I'm actually making a double batch right now to reaheat tomorrow morning for Easter with the family 🙂

  292. Followed as written and it turned out fantastic. Thanks!

  293. Link exchange is nothing else but it is just placing the other person's weblog link on your page at proper place and other person will also do similar in favor of you.
    Take a look at my homepage ::

  294. Made this for brunch today, my sister gobbled it up despite being full, I had to battle myself fiercely to not eat more than one serving and my housemate, who is sick with the flu and refused everything I had offered up to that point took one look and said "yeah, I want some, looks good". It was amazing. Tasted like banana bread and oatmeal muffins rolled into one, but a million times better!!!

  295. Hi Gina! I'm new to your site and have enjoyed browsing through your recipes. Everything looks delish! I have a newbie question for you – what unit is this dish in – 1/6th?

  296. I am in love with this recipe! My husband and I are both watching what we eat – I made this – and we add a dallop of light cool whip and have it for breakfast. It's fabulous! We eat it cold or reheated. Sometimes I also add a little brown sugar splenda before I bake it to the top just to add a little something special.

  297. Mmmmm…made this today. Didn't have nuts or honey so I used Truvia as my sweetener. Topped my portion with light whipped topping. It's so good. I'm hoping the rest of my family doesn't eat any so I can have it 🙂

  298. Fantastic and so delicious! My husband gave it a 4.5 out of 5…because it was underdone…my fault. My 12-year-old gave it a 5…"yum, yum, yummy!" I love it and will make it often, especially when our own blueberries are ripe on the bushes!!

  299. This is really delicious. Just sweet enough without being too sweet. I could not stop eating it, and then nibbling more before I put away the leftovers. Having those tonight for dessert. 🙂

  300. Hello, i just made the recipe but i need it for tomorrow, should i keep it outside or
    in the fridge???
    Is it ok to use drie fruit with this recipe???
    How many days with it last good, ? because i am the only one who eats it at home!!!!
    Thanks a lot….

  301. So glad I found this recipe. Love the taste and very filling. After making it I will cut it into 6 servings and freeze them individually. Before reheating in the microwave I add a little spray butter to keep it moist.

  302. My husband and my son, who both love oatmeal, bananas, and blueberries separately, did not like this. I thought it was okay. The blueberries came out so tart and I couldn't even taste any sweetness from the honey. Hubby also hated the texture of the walnuts. I'm going to try again in a couple of weeks, though…pulverizing the nuts to mix in with the oatmeal, subbing raisins for the blueberries, and adding a touch more honey. I never thought of making baked oatmeal, so this was a great idea and something I can customize to our liking. Thanks!

  303. Note to anyone trying this recipe, DO NOT use a 9 X 13 pan! That's what I get for not following the directions. It was really dry, but the flavor was good. I'll just add more milk before warming it up to eat again.

  304. Made this today and loved it! Hubby was shocked that it didn't have butter or sugar in it. So good!

  305. Made this today and we all loved it! My hubby was shocked that there was no sugar or butter in it. So good!

    • No cane sugar, correct.  But agave has higher fructose content than high fructose corn syrup.  If you’re trying to go sugar free, try xylitol, stevia or other plant based sweetener.  

  306. Can this recipe be made in a crock pot?

  307. Can this be made in a crock pot?

  308. Can you tell me how many calories it is without the nuts?

  309. This is absolutely delicious!!!

  310. Hi Gina,
    I just love your site and all your recipes. I think 50% of what I make these days is from Skinnytaste!
    My son has an egg allergy. Do you have any suggestions for an egg substitute?

  311. this was soooo good!

  312. How long can this be kept? A week?

  313. Just tried this for breakfast this morning instead of the usual open the pouch oatmeal. OMG this is awesome. I will definitely be making again and again and again …

  314. I LOVE this recipe! I use steel cut oats and unsweetened vanilla almond milk and this time I added blackberries with the blueberries. Fantastic, it's my breakfast and dessert 🙂

  315. Fabulous recipe! i'll be trying it out with strawberries soon!
    Thanks Gina

  316. Gina, I have made this a dozen times and I can't seem to get the consistency right. I wonder what I'm doing wrong. Any tips?

    • Needs to cook longer at a lower temp. I did it for an hour on 335ish. But I also made 6 times what the recipe said. ????

  317. Made these today and they were FANTASTIC. I left out the blueberries and substituted toasted slivered almonds for the walnuts. I also mashed a banana into the oat mixture. This will be added to my breakfast rotation. Most delicious oatmeal I've ever had.

  318. Hi Gina, I made this recipe last night and had it for breakfast today. It was FANTASTIC. I hope you don't mind, I'll be linking to your site and this page on my blog post today.

  319. My husband can't eat egg. What can I use instead?

  320. I tried this and it was delicious!! My husband doesn't like bananas, so I tried it again, but used apples and raisins instead of blueberries and bananas, and I used maple syrup instead of honey because I didn't have enough honey. It was equally delicious! Thanks for a great recipe!

  321. Could you add protein powder to this recipe for an extra boost? If so, would you need to adjust any of the other ingredients to get the right texture?

  322. Made this tonight- I halved the recipe and left out the nuts… it was a success! I topped mine with 95% fat free coolwhip, it was totally like eating dessert! This site is my new favorite… THANKS for all of the great recipes. As a lifetime WW member I can't tell you how helpful it is.

  323. Delicious with steel cut oats. I've added in cherries to this batch.

  324. I just made this with bananas and strawberries instead of blueberries. I super hate regular oatmeal (it's a textural issue) but love the flavor so I figured this would be a good way for me to get some into my diet. it was completely delicious! When fall gets here I'll be making this with apples on the bottom instead of bananas, cranberries instead of blueberries, and maple syrup instead of honey. Can't wait!

  325. Just made this! Delicious! And my husband who is anti fruit enjoyed it as well!

  326. I love it!
    I added half a cup of brown sugar and a tablespoon of maple syrup to the mixture for a delicious post-omelette sunday brunch treat to go with coffee.
    MMM! 🙂

  327. I made this recipe this morning and it is FABULOUS!! It will definitely find itself on my weekend breakfast menu many times and I love the idea of freezing it and reheating for an easy, healthy weekday breakfast. LOVE IT!

  328. Another great recipe. I've really enjoyed my breakfasts this week. Making up another batch this weekend.

  329. How many points plus would this be without the nuts? I have a nut allergy….

  330. Do you have the exact nutrition information for this recipe?

  331. Oh, and I've made it with steel cut oats and regular rolled oats and quick oats at different times (depending what was in the pantry) and it has come out perfectly with each type.

  332. Okay, okay, I've commented on this recipe before but daaaang I love it so much. It's in the oven yet again–I've probably made it over a dozen times. Thank you, Gina!

  333. This looks awesome! Definitely want to try it 🙂 The pictures are wonderful, what camera do you use? 🙂

  334. Wowza! I just made this and it is SO good! I replaced dairy milk with almond milk (much healthier, and fewer calories!), blackberries for blueberries, and I used old fashioned oats. Turned out amazingly well. Thank you so much for calculating calories & putting up delicious recipes!

  335. I have been using this recipe as a base and changing it with different fruits as I go along. Today I used my last 2 eggs for breakfast so I subbed 3 tablespoons of unsweetened applesauce and I used 1/3 cup of Splenda Brown Sugar Blend instead of the honey/agave. Instead of blueberries and bananas I used dried cranberries.

  336. There's DEFINITELY a difference using the steel cut oatmeal and the regular quick cooking oatmeal! I tried both ways and the steel cut oats are just too dense for this dish. When I made it for a group using the regular quick oats, everyone raved! I can't wait to try it with apples or pears (or peaches? apricots?) 🙂

  337. My girlfriend has been making oatmeal for me since my cholesterol has been a little high. I love blueberries, so this is a great new twist. Thanks for the recipe!

  338. I have this is in the oven right now…can't wait! I used steel cut oats that I soaked in an equal part of water overnight, so I'm slightly concerned that the oats won't soak up more moisture, but crossing my fingers that in the cooking and evaporating process it'll happen! I also bumped up the oat amount to 1.5 cups as 1 cup didn't sound like enough for 6 servings to me, and used 3 bananas as I had 3 to use and they covered the bottom of my 9×9 in a nice single layer, but kept other measurements the same.

  339. Does this freeze well?

  340. I find it comes out really soggy if you rinse your blueberries prior to putting them in the dish and add them while they are still wet. The extra moisture made a difference for me.

  341. I just made this and served it with fromage frais… Dessert in the evening hen an indulgent breakfast! Reheats beautifully in the microwave. Added an extra banana just because

  342. I made this last night with regular old-fashioned oats and let it sit overnight in my fridge, covered. This morning I uncovered it, popped it in the oven and it came out wonderful! Post to come soon 🙂

  343. This recipe was delicious. Substituted applesauce for eggs (daughter has an egg allergy) and used pecans. It tastes awesome cold too!

  344. I used regular oats for this and it came out great! I love your recipes, Gina! The one thing I tried was baking these in my Pampered Chef brownie pan. I cut down the cooking time by 5 minutes for my gas stove and baked at 350°. I couldn't wait for them to set before I had to eat one. This helps with my feeling like I get to eat more, sine you get to eat two. Your recipe filled this pan perfectly! I only had to add a little milk for the last one. Good gauge when splitting ingredients I put enough oat mix on to just barely cover the fruit, then the milk mix just to cover the oatmeal. I think these will freeze well, and I will just take out of freezer night before into the fridge and nuke in microwave to reheat.

  345. Just made this yesterday and would love to know what I did wrong! My milk mixture did not sink down in the dish enough to wet all the dry ingredients and I had a bunch of crumbs in the final product. We still ate the whole thing(!), but I would love to know how to fix this for the future.

  346. Ive never seen my 18 month old eat as fast and urgently as she did when she tried this. It felt so good to know she was eating something healthy and loving it! And it was homemade and super easy. Gina, you help me be a better mom!

  347. I wanted to make some hearty for a Saturday morning breakfast, and knew I had all the ingredients on hand already (which was a surprise). It turned out very well, but seemed mushy in the middle – although fully baked. I only had old-fashioned oats so maybe that was the deal. It was still good though. I would definitely make it again! Also, I used frozen blueberries and they seemed to warm up just fine.

  348. This is wonderful. Didn't have any bananas, so used frozen mixed berries. Kids will love this.

  349. I loved it so much I am making a second batch! I added in some dark chocolate chips for a nice tasty surprise. thank you! :))

  350. This was the best baked oatmeal I've made! I was worried about it not being sweet enough for my young kiddos, but with the bananas and blueberries, it was perfect!

  351. I made this, this morning! Although it tasted good, it never truely set up, so I scooped it into bowls for breakfast..Was my mistake using frozen blue berries?

  352. I made this last night and had it this morning and it was AWESOME!! Thanks!

  353. Can this recipe be doubled??? I need something for our mom's group tomorrow!

  354. I made this today for Sunday morning breakfast. It was delicious! Only problem was I couldn't stop eating it! Love your recipes!

  355. I am eating this right now and I could die happy at this very moment.

  356. Found this recipe on Pinterest and of course I had to make it! It is so yummy and since it's just me that's eating it and I change my breakfast up every morning I still have a little left in the fridge. I was wondering how long it last in the fridge? Tomorrow makes one week since I originally made it. Still safe to eat? What are your thoughts? I love it and I wouldn't be able to stand to have to toss the leftovers out!

  357. would it work if i use cooked couscous instead of oatmeal?

  358. I made this for the first time today and it was amazing. I will be having another slice for dessert tonight. Thanks so much!

  359. This is a fabulous recipe! I sometimes use just blueberries or also blueberries and peaches. Delish!

  360. I just made this, did not have blueberries, I used some dried mango and organic blueberry honey, I love bananas and oatmeal so this was a pleasant surprise, mixing up some of the things I like to eat most, made two separate clay bowls and it looked great, my place smelled great and OMG what a flavor! I didn't used sunflower seeds and sesame seeds since I did not have nuts in my pantry, next time will do! Thanks so much!

  361. Can I use Stevia instead of honey? If so how much?

  362. I see 2 previous questions about using steel cut oats…it would be nice if we could get an answer to the question?

  363. I am pretty new to your site but so far there are quite a few recipes that look really good and that I need to try. I came across this recipe a few days ago and had to make it! First of all, it looks delicious and second of all I pretty much had everything except the honey. I just substituted some real maple syrup for the honey and used old-fashioned oats instead of quick ones. This recipe was perfect for the wild blueberries I had in the freezer that I picked this summer and the ripe bananas that I had sitting on my counter. Love the taste of the warm bananas. I have to admit I ate this as a dessert after dinner tonight instead of for breakfast….but I will definitely be having some in the morning also! Thanks for posting such a scrumptious recipe!

  364. I also followed the directions exactly and it came out soggy. It still tastes okay but I'd rather have it be more crispy like an oatmeal bar. Any suggestions?

  365. I just made it with quinoa flakes instead of oats, and used stevia instead of honey. Will let you know how it works out.

  366. My daughter who "hates oatmeal" loved this! She first ate it reheated and thought it was blueberry banana bread. I didn't correct her of course! When I served it to her fresh from the oven it was more like oatmeal consistency, and she didn't care for it. But as long as I serve it to her reheated she LOVES it!

  367. This was pretty good. I omitted the blueberries because the ones I purchased from the store were not very good. I do think it would have been better with some sort of berry to sweeten it up a bit for my 4 year old. I will definitely make this again when I have access to fresher berries!

  368. I loved this recipe! I did everything the same but I sliced an apple really thin and placed it on top! It was super yummy!

  369. I had the same issue noted just above about this turning out soggy. I followed the directions exactly and did not make any substitutions. I even baked it an extra 5 minutes when I checked at 30 and noticed it didn't look set as your pics demonstrated. While the flavors were still very good, the sogginess was tough to get over. I would still try to make this again, but if you have any insight into what could have caused this, I would love to hear it!

  370. I made this the other night and not quite what I was looking for. It was soggy, is that normal? I am going to try again cuz it really does look delish. Any advice?

  371. Sounds wonderful..Will make this soon!I'll try the strawberries too instead of banana's ..And the flax seed…Yummmm..
    Thanks so much you rock!

  372. I have made this a few times and it is amazing! Can you please put it under the "breakfast" category, I always have a hard time finding the recipe when I need it 🙂 thanks

  373. Ginaaaa. I cannot thank you enough for this recipe. I do not like oatmeal by any means. I tried so many times to eat it, but could never get it down. I was looking for ways to incorporate oatmeal in my diet and this recipe was the answer. I made it last night and had it for breakfast this morning. I shared it with my co-workers and they loved it. Thanks again.

  374. I've used peaches instead of the bananas. Wow, is it ever GOOD! Thanks for the great recipe. I think I've made it 5 times in the last three weeks. Also added flax seed. YUM!

  375. I'm making this right now, :DDD smells good! I made some changes; I used maple syrup instead of honey, and a coconut almond milk blend just because I like the flavor more. I also mixed the nuts into the oats instead of sprinkling them on top which was an accident, they won't get toasted on top:(( but OHWELL. can't wait til the oven beeps !

  376. I made this baked oatmeal for breakfast this morning. OMG…absolutely delish! This has become my new favorite way to eat oatmeal.

  377. I want to say thank-you as well! My fiance and I are doing weight watchers and thanks to all your helpful recipes, we've both lost about 5lbs! 🙂 Also helps that you have such a great variety of recipes, and the ones I've made are so so good!!

  378. Thank you Gina for your cooking talents and for posting recipes along with photos for us to enjoy on this blog. Since discovering Skinnytaste a few weeks ago, I've made many recipes and have not been disappointed. So healthy, delicious and easy! This oatmeal is another winner!!

  379. Just made this for my husband and me for dinner and it was awesome! I loved the warm bananas and the tang of the blueberries. Plus my house smells wonderful! Thanks!

  380. I WAS not an oatmeal person by any means – but this recipe made me a believer. I have passed this wonderful recipe onto my daughter who has 3 children along with most of my coworkers and even my leader at WW. Great way to get over an oatmeal boycott. I am looking forward to trying it with apples and cranberries. Thank you so much.

  381. We just made this and it was amazing! We made two small changes – We used 2 1/2 sliced bananas to cover the bottom so we smashed the remaining half and mixed it in with the milk. It spread the banana all over the oatmeal! The other change was we reduced the agave a lot.

    Great recipe, thanks!!

  382. DELICIOUS!!!! This will be a new weekly breakfast staple in my household! Thanks for such a scrumptious recipe!

  383. This was an amazing recipe! My husband and I had it for dinner. It is sweet and tangy and yet hearty and fulfilling at the same time. LOVE THIS WEBSITE!!

  384. Second Time I'm making this recipe. One of my favorite. I add about 8 grams of natural PB on top of a serving and it packs a punch! Filling!! Thank you!!

  385. Gina, I tried this today for the first time. It's delish! I would imagine that tomorrow morning it will be even better when the flavors have had a chance to blend together well. I used frozen mixed berries (instead of blueberries) that I thawed out first because that's what I had on hand and it was yummy. Thanks so much for sharing!

  386. Just tried this recipe this morning and its AMAZING! my new favorite breakfast for SURE! I just discovered your site this month and I'm loving your recipes! Thanks for all that you do!

  387. I have been looking at this recipe for a week and finally made it today. It is delicious. . My new favorite breakfast.. Thanks so much

  388. Thank you thank you!! This was my first time making (and eating) baked oatmeal, and let me tell you, man I was missing out! This recipe was DELISH!! Even my husband loved it. I frequently tell others about your blog. Just today I shared this recipe with 3 coworkers, all of whom seemed truly eager to try it out. Thank you for all of your time and dedication!!! You make a difference in our lives!

  389. What a great alternative to plain oatmeal. I've tried it so many ways and never been a fan but this I liked. We only have 2 people in our house so there was a lot of extra that I was hoping to eat during the week. I did have it a few days but by about the 4th day it had turned sour – I'm assuming it was related to the cooked fruits. Anyway, next time we'll have to eat it faster 🙂

  390. I have a banana allergy in the family, what would you substitute for it???? Loks great,c an't wait to try it!

  391. FABULOUS recipe – I did add a bit of brown sugar to the top and it reheats BEAUTIFULLY the next day! Thanks for sharing.

  392. Thank you, Gina! I just finished my yoga for the day and I am currently feasting on this delicious breakfast. What a treat!

  393. Do you put the foil back on when you put the oatmeal in the oven for the remaining 30 minutes?

  394. I make a version of this quite frequently, use some raisens . I cut mine into 9 portions . I use 9+9 pan. Let cool and wrap on plastic wrap and freeze pull out for bfast or snack…I also use egg beaters instead of egg , Splenda for sweetner , my recipe calls for small amt yogurt .

  395. So yummy! Made this for Saturday morning breakfast, and it was so delicious! Look forward to having leftovers for the week.

    Gina – thank you for providing such high quality and healthy recipes.

  396. just took this out of the oven- delicious! the bananas are what really made it. i don't even like oatmeal that much, but loved this. thanks!

  397. I made this last weekend with the bananas and it was delish! I now have it in the oven with apples. I can't wait. 20 more minuets!

  398. My 15 year-old daughter and I just made baked oatmeal for the second time this week – by her request! She's been out of school due to snow and it's the perfect treat for this weather. Thank you so much for all your delicious and healthy recipes, Gina! 🙂

  399. Made this tonight but I put in frozen blackberries from our yard this summer. It was so good everyone loved it.
    Thanks for the great recipes.

  400. This is amazing…amazing! I just love your blog and have recommended it to my friends. I've made several of your recipes and have loved every one. It's so hard to find recipes for food that is good for you and that tastes good, too. My son loves your recipes as well, which makes them definite winners by me 🙂 Thanks for sharing them!

  401. I have to tell you I was prepared to write a "it's not you it's me" type of thing because I'm not really a lover of bananas BUT I had everything to make this dish in my fridge so I knew I had to give it a whirl. I am so glad I did!!!!!!!!! I couldn't wait to try it the minute I took it out of the oven. It is AMAZING! And guess what?! I even love the flavor & texture the bananas lend!! I won't change a thing when I make it again – this is going into my recipe binder pronto!

    I now have your 3 bean chili in my crockpot for tonight's dinner. I will be a faithful blog follower from now on – thank you so much for your hard work!

  402. Gina, it has been a while since I have commented on one of your recipes but I HAVE to tell you how much I love this one!

    First of all, the title has three of my toddler's favorite foods in the title–banana, blueberries and oatmeal. I knew I had to make it! I made it for dinner (as breakfast in our home is usually super simple and quick, like yogurt or toast) and when my husband came home from work he thought I had made a blueberry crisp for dessert–and I said, "No, this is actually a healthy dinner". Needless to say, we were ALL happy and satisfied!

    The leftovers heated beautifully in the microwave so it would be a good make ahead option at the beginning of the week so we can enjoy it for breakfast all week long. In fact, I'll be doing that soon.

    In my opinion, the bananas made the dish amazing. I read some comments of people asking what they could replace the bananas with–I can't think of anything that would make it taste as amazing as the bananas did.

    I'll be printing this recipe and adding it to my permanent collection.

    Thanks, Gina, for what you do. Your recipes are always delicious, well explained and expertly photographed–it's a real pleasure to have a free resource like your blog at my fingertips. ; )

  403. This is delicious! I can't believe it's healthy for you too! I love your blog!! I just discovered your blog a few months ago and have already made a ton of recipes!! I'm a health food nut who loves to cook/bake and am always trying to find new things to make. Thanks for the recipes.

    I do have a question. How do you figure our the calorie/nutritional information for a dish? I never know what the calorie intake is when I make something.



  404. Senegal, wow! You could really use any combination of fruit here. Thanks for commenting!

    • I have 2 ripe (but not over ripe) Bananas for this, Strawberries, a handful of frozen blueberries, and some nuts and seeds. Should I wait till the Bananas ripen more before I do it or give it a go now?

  405. Wow! Thanks for another wonderful recipe! I just made this this morning with strawberries instead of blueberries. I live in Senegal, West Africa, and it's hard enough to find fresh strawberries here. Fresh blueberries are unheard of! It was amazing! Thanks for helping make ww so much fun for a newbie like me!

  406. Wow, so glad you all liked this!

    Mari, great idea caramelizing the bananas!

    Aimster, lol!!

    To replace dairy, use almond milk.

    Blue circle, smart idea using ramekins! I may do that next time too!!

    Uncover for final baking.

    KinderKelly Oh how wonderful, what school?

    Not sure why some had the blueberries running the color, mine did not. Either way, I'm sure the flavor is the same.

    I always count the fruit in my nutritional info, fruit is not free. Not sure why you got 6 and I got 5. Steel cut oats I believe is higher than quick oats. Maybe that is why? I will recheck to be sure.

    I serve this on a plate like a slice of cake. I reheat it in the microwave just to get it warm. Reading all these comments makes me want to make it again!!

  407. Incredibly easy recipe and it kept me full all morning. FYI, I saved in the frig overnight and reheated in the microwave. Came out great!

  408. Mmm this was amazing! Made it for dinner, used an extra banana and almonds instead of walnuts. Thanks for another delicious recipe!

  409. Made this yesterday and it was delicious!
    However, when I put it in the recipe builder on WW, it came out to 6 points+. I talked to my meeting leader about it and she said that when you bake the fruit, you have to count the points for it, so it is actually 6 Points+.

    Still worth it for a treat!

  410. I made it this morning and took it to a brunch. Everyone loved it (however I agree with a previous post, the blueberries turned the whole thing a blue/gray color so it wasn't super pretty – I used frz blueberries). The pan was gone in about the first 15 minutes though and I made sure to let everyone know how healthy it was! Thanks!! I will be making this for our family's Saturday breakfast instead of a heavy coffee cake!

  411. Made this again yesterday with cherries and apples. Instead of vanilla I used almond essence and it was so good, tasted just like cherry apple bakewell. Delicious served with 0% Greek yogurt. I had also frozen a piece of baked oatmeal on Saturday and took it out yesterday to see how it tasted after freeing it. It was okay,it lost it's bite and felt a bit mushy but the flavour was still good.

  412. FYI– I baked it the last 30 minutes uncovered, used no nuts, and frozen blueberries– turned out great. For a breakfast or brunch it is wonderful as it was out of teh oven. To make it a dessert, we drizzled maple syrup over the servings.

  413. I am going to try this recipe. Just wondering how are you serving it? In a bowl with milk or just like a piece of cake on a plate? How are you warming it up for the leftovers?

  414. This was terrific as written, and reheated really well too. Family loved it. Husband suggested apples and we'll try that soon. Thanks so much.

  415. Cannot tell you how much my family & I loved this! Looking forward to trying some other grain & flavour combinations too! Thank you so much for all your fantastic recipes!

  416. I just sang your praises on my weight loss blog, lol. This is phenomenal! Thank you for all you do. You've made "dieting" so much easier for all of us. 🙂

  417. Absolutely delicious. My husband is tough to cook healthier foods for as they typically are not very flavorful and filling, but this was a huge hit. He and I both really enjoyed the not too sweet taste and the richness with the egg. Yummo. Will definitely be recommending this to friends.

  418. I'm making this tomorrow (with apples and craisins) and then your salmon with rosemary for dinner. A great SkinnyTaste day – thank you! And, if you remember, where did you get that beautiful green dish with the polka dots? I have been looking for a smaller baking dish and that is the cutest one I have seen!

  419. I made this today and it's so great! I peeled and sliced 3 apples instead of bananas and cooked that with the blueberries an extra 10 minutes and it was plenty soft when the whole thing was done. I find your points a little high. Do you add every ingredient into the recipe builder or only those ingredients that have known PP values? I didn't do any of the fruit (fruit is 0 points) and came up with slightly fewer WW points. All that said, it's amazing. Thank you! I may omit the nuts next time because it will bring down the points evern more as what I really liked is the fruit on the bottom and the yummy cake like oatmeal goodness on the top. YOU'RE THE BOMB!!

  420. This dish was FANTASTIC! Im on WW and their recipies, usually , not so great. but this was awesome and decent portion. i also had a 1/2 c yogurt to fill me up for breakfast. and i had ot make it with some frozen fruit mix that i had cuz my bananas werent ripe enough. I cant wait to make it with bannanas! Thank you!

  421. Are you kidding me, this was fabulous, and we had to control ourselves from eating the whole dish…after the 1st bite, my husband said…is this dessert? What a winner!

  422. I saw this and made it right away… yum yum yum! Thanks again

  423. Made this recipe right after I got done cleaning up from our dinner which was your Chicken taco chili. Again we both enjoyed it. I can't wait to have another piece tomorrow morning before work. As long as I have your site I think losing weight & eating healthy will be a breeze!!! & I love how I have majority of the stuff already on hand!

  424. Would love to know if anyone has any tips on making this with steel cut oats? I am not sure if they would just require extra soaking or if they would just not fit in to this dish at all?

    • I tried using Coach's Oats which are a variation of the steel cut oats. Coach's claims that the oats can be used just like any rolled oats and they cook in 5 minutes. This was the first time this recipe every failed for me. The oats just didn't cook. There were clumps of dried oats throughout. So, if it didn't work with Coach's Oats, I highly doubt it would work with Steel Cut oats. I might try again and try adding more milk.

  425. This is the first recipe I tried from this site and it was amazing. I have my menu for the whole week planned out and everyone of them is from this site so I am hoping they all taste as good as this did.

  426. Fantastic!

  427. I fixed this today for breakfast. I am in love!!! So delicious! I love all the ingredients in it! Thank you for this!!!!

  428. I made this for breakfast this morning. It was delicious! I left out the nuts and used about half the honey(because I ran out). I also used a glass dish and it turned out perfect!

  429. Yay! An baked oatmeal my husband and I can eat! We are going sugar free, but we can do natural sugar like honey! I'm excited to try this! It looks and sounds delicious!

  430. I just made this today as a Sunday morning treat. And it is soo delicious! I shared it with my friends on Facebook and they all want to make it now. I used frozen blueberries, and the finished product ended up more liquidy than what your picture shows, so I think the next time I make this with frozen blueberries I will adjust the amount of milk I put in the recipe. Now the only problem is it's so hard to eat just one serving for breakfast!

  431. This was so delicious I ended up making three more pans for the entire week! Thank you for the amazing recipes!

  432. I love this recipe! It looks wonderful. I would like to make it for my daughter to have an easy breakfast on school mornings. Sometimes it can be tough be get her to eat breakfast as she is too busy putting on make up and doing her hair. 😉
    Would this be something that would be okay to divvy up into single portions after cooking and then freezing?

  433. Made this today and loved it. But the rather gray-blue color from the blueberries was a bit off-putting. Yours didn't look at all like that in photo. Do you have a secret? I used fresh blueberries and whole oats. Thanks for a wonderful site…I love using it.

  434. Gina – As soon as I saw this recipe, I picked up the laptop, walked in to the kitchen, and baked this dish. It is AMAZING! Even my picky son loved it. Yet another wonderful recipe that we love from you. All of my cookbooks are collecting dust because everything I make now comes from your recipes. Thank you soooo much!

  435. Hi Gina,
    I have been using your recipes for some time now and I have been meaning to write you for the immense gratitude I have for your recipes and the whole design of your website. You have single-handedly taken the frustration and aggravation out of constantly trying to come up with new and inventive recipes day after day and have them be healthy for you at the same time. I am a fellow Long Islander and teacher and I recommend your blog to everyone I encounter, whether it's from the leftovers they smell in the teacher's room or for a delicious recipe to help inspire weight loss and eating healthy. You truly are an inspiration and such a talent. As the months draw nearer to my wedding in November, I will have you and your recipes to thank for being able to fit into my dress and my fiance into his tuxedo. i couldn't wait to share my appreciation and tell you how I basically decide what to cook for dinner based on what I have in the fridge and what recipe that best matches on your site. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You have even assisted my college roommate in losing over 100lbs. on Weight Watchers using your recipes to get her through the holidays and the constant decisions we battle each day with food consumption! You are fabulous!

  436. I made this today and it was delicious. I served it with some vanilla flavoured soya yogurt and it was a wonderful breakfast, on a very cold frosty morning. Thank you.

  437. Tried this today for breakfast and it was unbelievable delish! Loved it

  438. This turned out great. I used old fashioned oats and it was perfect. Next time I will cut back on the honey as I found it to be a bit to sweet for my taste.

  439. Gina…Made this the night you put it online…Love the fact that most ingredients were readily available to a "Weight Watcher's kitchen" and I was able to make it same day as your post. I made it before bed & had it warmed up the next day…Yum!!!!! Keep your great recipes coming!! Sandy. 🙂

  440. I made it this morning minus the honey (none on hand), and it was a big hit with everyone. While it is a bit a baking time, there is little time needed to actually get it together. It will be a regular from now on. Thanks!

  441. For those wondering about making it ahead… I assembled this last night for this morning, skipping the 15 minute banana bake, using old-fashioned oats. Chose those oats b/c they'd be soaking in the milk all night. It came out soft, like a bowl of hearty, thick oatmeal loaded with fruit. Didn't have time to bake longer to see if it would get crispier. As it was though, everyone loved it and it'll see regular rotation in our Saturday morning "big breakfasts." Do think I'll try swapping some of the honey for brown sugar.

  442. Made this today. Delicious! Now I have breakfast for the next three days! Hubby ate two servings!

  443. Hi Gina, this is my first comment on your site. I've been making your recipes for a year now and they never disappoint. I just made the baked oatmeal and it was outrageously delicious. My only substitutions/changes were no nuts (forgot!), I used blackberries AND blueberries, and I added a layer of banana slices on top. I broiled the dish at the very end to caramelize the banana slices on top. Tonight I'm making your empanada recipe. Thanks so much for your site.

  444. Hey Gina I made this for my family this morning:-) It's currently in the oven but I'm wondering for the final baking – should it be covered or uncovered? I have it covered right now and I'm going to uncover for the last few minutes. thank you!

  445. AMAZING!!!!!!!
    Another great receipe.

  446. Hiya! I made this tonight for dinner! It was SO good! I made a vegan version of it with unsweetened soy milk and 1 TBSP of ground flaxseed mixed with 3 TBSP of Water to replace the egg I also used AGAVE instead of honey. I didn't check to see what the difference in calories were but this dish was WONDERFUL…so good right out of the oven! It doesn't taste too sweet and it is VERY moist! The hot blueberries just popped in my mouth! Looking forward to eating it in the morning as well! THANKS!

  447. This was really good! First time making something from your blog! It was a hit! Thankyou

  448. Gina, how many points with this be if the walnuts aren't included?


  449. I made this on 1/12/12
    Husband ate all of it. i had a slice. it is AWESOME !!! thank you.

  450. This was fabulous!! I used blueberries & apples (not a banana fan), subbed pure maple syrup because I didn't have honey. So yummy!! Next time i think i will try making in individual ramekins so everyone can have their own little dish. Thank you for making my morning oatmeal much more interesting!!

  451. OMG this is fantastic. Made it for breakfast and it was delicious. My daughter who hates oatmeal with a passion happily munched away thinking we were being naughty eating dessert for breakfast. I only had one banana so chopped up a pink lady apple and threw that in with the blueberries and banana. Just tasted some cold (for investigating purposes lol) and it was sooooo good . Think this will be a staple in our house

  452. Could this be made with water? Current,y breastfeeding and was told to. Ut dairy products out of my diet…

  453. Made it today for after dinner tonight! Loved it!!

  454. I made the recipe this afternoon for my husband. I didn't expect to like it myself. I am not a huge fan of oatmeal or bananas. But YOWZA! This is very good. I agree with Gina's comment "the riper the better" for the bananas. I am now trying to figure out where to hide it before my husband gets home 😉

  455. I made these yesterday for breakfast and had some today for lunch. It was just as good today as yesterday. The kids even ate some for desert!

  456. YUM! I'd love to make this over the weekend and pack it for a weekday bfast- how would you recommend reheating it?!

  457. First off yummo!! Made this last night and had it for breakfast this morning! Had all of the ingredients except the nuts. I plugged the recipe into etools recipe builder minus the nuts and it still came out to be 5 pointplus per serving.

  458. can this be made with frozen blueberries?

  459. Made this this morning and it was great. I always want to eat more oatmeal, but I'm not crazy regular cooked oatmeal–the texture bothers me. So thanks for an alternative way to cook it.

  460. Sounds delicious on this cold Minnesota morning! Pinning it for our next cold day. 🙂

  461. Good morning, Gina!
    Just ate your recipe this morning. I NEVER bake, but when your recipe hit my email box, I said lemme give it a try. Especially, because my morning regimen usually includes oatmeal already. The dish was an excellent change and a good first try for me.

  462. I made this yesterday! If you would have asked me if I like oatmeal, I would have said 'Eh.'

    The great thing about this recipe is that is also a method.

    I am going to be experimenting with different fruits, nuts, and spices.

    Just love it!! Thanks again, Gina!

  463. you can use ener-g egg replacer for the egg probably. otherwise, applesauce?

  464. Does this get crunchy?

  465. do you put foil overt it for the remaining 30 mins??

  466. What can be substituted for the egg – if allergic to egg?

  467. What could work in place of bananas? I don't like that flavor, but would like that moistness they must bring to the recipe, which looks amazing!


  468. Can this be done with frozen bananas mashed with the blueberries?

  469. Can't wait to try this out!!! I have all the ingredients at home and I'm thinking this might be on the menu tomorrow morning.

  470. OMG! This looks awesome! I'll be making this next after the sweet bread I already made a few days ago. When I was off Weight Watchers during the holidays, I made a very similar recipe with tons of butter in it that I knew I would have to give up once back on. Your version looks very similar, but so much healthier & less butter. Thank you!!!

  471. Well, that was the best tasting lunch I have had in ages!!! I am already looking forward to breakfast tomorrow morning. Thanks Gina!!!

  472. I am going to try this in the slow cooker.

  473. Recipe looks AMAZING and I can't wait to try it out. I reran the points with and without the nuts. I actually came up with 6points WITH the nuts and 5 points without the nuts. I entered all the ingredients you listed and used 6 servings as you recipe stated.

    Make a recipe or two a week from your blog and absolutely have loved everyone. I also have told all my friends to check you out as well.

    Keep up the good work…your recipes are amazing and photos out of this world!!!

  474. I am new to this cooking thing to be honest… I've been married for 3 years but have just started cooking ( I know, I know, pathetic!) we just had our second child and after spending 53 days in the NICU (she was 11 weeks early.) my weight went crazy so I'm trying to cut back with the help of your fabulous site!

    Being new to cooking I'm not sure how apples would factor into this. I know my 2 year old loves apple/cinnamon oatmeal so I could I just follow this recipe exactly (simmer the red apples awhile.) and subsitute red apples for the fruits in your recipe or no?

  475. Quick question…one of my little ones loves fruit but doesn't like the chuck texture…do you think this would work if after heating the bananas and blueberries I could puree it a bit?? what are your thoughts? Thanks in advance.

  476. will a glass dish work?

  477. it's in the oven right now, will post again with details! if it's yummy, this is my lunch today!

  478. Looks so good! Can't wait to try and then play with the recipe to add other fruits, nuts, etc.!

  479. I'm a big fan of baked oatmeal. It makes an easy work day lunch.

  480. Just reheated my last piece for breakfast today! Just as good… if not better!

  481. Love baked oatmeal and this recipe looks perfect!

  482. Yummy, got this email today and made it for breakfast. So yummy – I will have the kids try it tonight after swimming for a snack. The only thing I would do differently is to chop my walnuts smaller. – I will definately be trying more of your recipes soon. Thank You

  483. We have made a similar "clafoutis" recipe. I cut it into the appropriate serving sizes and wrap each one individually and freeze. Take one out at night and put it the refrigerator. In the morning just put in the microwave for a minute or two. If you forget to take it out the night before you can still microwave it from frozen. Fast and delcious breakfst!

  484. This looks so good! We have several bags of blueberries in our freezer…does anyone know if frozen would work in this recipe? Thanks!

  485. Heather, thank you, I had fun playing with my food!!

    Leia- Sure, any berries would be great! Thanks, so many recipes can easily be adjusted for Vegetarians.

    Tara, I'm jealous! I would be floored if I came home and my husband prepared a meal. 🙂

    I agree, like dessert for breakfast!

  486. THANK YOU again for another awesome recipe!!! Mine is in the oven, smells so yummy, and I cannot wait for it to be ready!! Like dessert for breakfast-what a better way to start the day!

  487. This looks amazing, and I am totally going to try it this weekend! I wonder what I could sub for blueberries though. I live in India and don't think they're available here. Maybe strawberries would be nice?

    By the way, I'm a new reader and totally love your blog (though I'm vegetarian, but thankfully you have lots of veggie friendly recipes too!).

    ♥ Leia

  488. I saw this post yesterday and thought, "Oooh… so gonna be making this on my day off!" – and when I got home, my husband had already made it. Win!

    He had everything on hand but the milk, so he used half-and-half (adds a point per serving, btw). It is wonderful as dessert, and I reheated some in the microwave for breakfast. I love the idea of adding a little milk; might do that tomorrow if there's any left.

    I might experiment with freezing portions, too. I could see this being a great go-to item for breakfast on the run.

    Thanks, Gina!

  489. I have been making baked oatmeal for a couple of years but the points are sooooooo much higher, 9 pts., so this is a very welcome addition – can't wait to make it; I make it and cut into servings and freeze it – and voila breakfast on the go to take to work etc. Thank you so much for all your awesome recipes, tips and hints; you are truly amazing.

  490. Do you think you could make this with steel cut oats?

  491. Mine just came out of the oven. We used slivered almonds and old fashioned oats. It is fabulous. Thanks!

  492. KJ, so glad you made it already!

  493. This really is like a dessert! The texture is like the moistest cake you've ever had, not crispy or dry.

    You can leave the cinnamon out, or replace it with a spice you like. I'm sure you can assemble this the night before, then add the liquid in the morning and bake. And if you want to bake the night before, go for it! I would undertake it so it doesn't dry out when you re-heat it.

    Emalee, so glad you feel that way!

    Glass dish would work fine.

    Becky great idea adding flax!

    Sure, you can make it without the nuts, not sure of the Weight Watcher point difference off hand.

  494. Does anyone know what the WW points for this are?

  495. I have another baked oatmeal recipe, not skinny like this, that I can make ahead of time and let sit overnight in the fridge, then just pop in the oven in the morning to bake. Do you think this could be done the same way? If so, I will go make & assemble it now! I struggle with finding a hearty breakfast that will last and I don't like regular oatmeal (which the rest of my family LOVES) but baked with these fruits & nuts is something right up my alley!!

  496. Hi, Gina. Any recommendation if making the night before…as in bake whole thing or do part? I'd like to bring it into our work breakfast. Thanks!

  497. I am sorry if it has already been asked but could this be made with almond milk? I just started WW and have yet to check the points for almond milk.

    • I used almond milk (and a little less honey to balance the extra sweetness) and then almond slices (I have a 21 month old and walnuts or pecans worry me a bit unless I chop then up so small I kind of lose the texture). I also used frozen bananas (thawed out). It was delicious!!

  498. What is the texture like? This looks REALLY good, but I've not been able to figure out how to eat oatmeal the regular way. If the texture is more like a cross between a bread/bar and oatmeal, I may be able to do it!

  499. Thank you so much for what you do! I've referred so many of my friends to your site! My biggest pet peeve is tasteless food. I've tried quite a few recipes from your site and my usual ploy is to double the spices and herbs, but I don't have to do that with yours! I LOVE THAT! and the best bonus ever is that it's low calorie! I don't have to feel guilty for eating the things I love!

  500. Wow is all I can say! Just made this so my family has something different and healthy for breakfast tomorrow. I used apples and raisins instead of the bananas and blueberries, no nuts and extra cinnamon. I baked the apples in the cinnamon and honey first (just like the bananas). It's FABULOUS! My 11 year old twins are eating it for dessert right now with vanilla ice cream on top! Thanks!

  501. Continuation of above….the leftovers are just as delicious!

  502. Old-fashioned oats would work. I make a version of baked oatmeal with bananas and brown sugar and I exclusively use old-fashioned oats for everything. I like the texture better with the whole oats, and you can nuke it in the microwave as well.

  503. I would love to try this but am allergic to cinnamon. Do you have any substitution ideas? Do you think it would taste ok without the cinnamon?

  504. Gina,

    Do you have any idea if this would work okay without the nuts? And how this would affect points values?

    Amy xx

  505. Just made it and tasted, yum! I also added flax seed to mine.

  506. I do not have a ceramic pan. Can I use a glass dish? Thanks

  507. Would love to know if anyone has had success w/ this or something similar, assembling ahead and then cooking in the morning. Thinking maybe if I use regular oats, they'd hold up overnight. Having my minions wait 45-60 minutes for breakfast is not going to work, but this looks so good.

  508. Kristen answered your question, reheats well!

    Kelly, the baking time would be the same for other berries.

    Not sure if this freezes and reheats ok, if anyone tries it, let me know!

    Apples and cranberries would be great!! I would probably simmer the apples and cranberries over the stove first so they are soft and yummy.

    I'm not sure if Old fashioned oats would work, but my guess is yes.

    • I made these bars (delish, delish!!), ate one (because I'm trying to be good), saved another for the next day and froze the rest. They tasted just as good reheated as the first day, although the edges weren't crunchy because I heated it back up in the micro. Otherwise, no complaints!

  509. Looks so good! I would like to make this for breakfast tomorrow, but I only have old fashion oats. Do you think that would work?

  510. i feel like this is perfect for a snack bar as well !!!

  511. Do you think I could make this with old-fashioned oats?

  512. Yumm…wondering about a combination of apples and cranberries? Not sure how to measure the fruit for that combo but I have leftover cranberries in the freezer from the holidays and I love apples cinnamon oatmeal…hmmmmm

  513. Would it be ok to freeze? I am the only one in my family who would eat it. I would love to divide it into servings and freeze individually.

    • Why not make a special serving for yourself? Would be easy to scale down and whip up in a ramekin.

    • I doubled the recipe and divided it up into silicon muffin tins, then put the tins in the freezer and popped them out into a Ziploc bag when frozen. They were great!

  514. I love love LOVE baked oatmeal. I like the idea of combining berries and bananas – I usually stick with one or the other!

  515. Hi Gina- how would using strawberries or raspberries instead of the bananas affect the baking time? Any ideas or should I just experiment?

  516. I'm curious as well how it will be left over! I would love to make a large pan for the 2 of us to eat throughout the week if it would work.

  517. Hi Gina, this looks so good. Can it be made with regular rolled oats (non-quick)? I wanted to try it without going to the store…Also, I wonder if I soaked Irish oats overnight, could I substitute those for the quick oats here (even if baking it longer)? Thought it might be a way to be even healthier.
