Baked oatmeal is like having dessert for breakfast! Made with healthy ingredients—bananas, pears, oats, nuts and maple syrup, it will leave you satisfied all morning.

Ingredients

  • 2 large ripe bananas ((the riper the better) sliced into 1/2″ pieces)
  • 1 1/2 cup diced and peeled ripe pears (1-/2 inch dice)
  • 5 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup uncooked quick oats*
  • 5 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup fat-free milk (or dairy-free milk such as almond or soy)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • *check labels for gluten-free

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375° 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. Top with the pears, 1/4 teaspoon of the cinnamon, 2 tablespoon of the maple and cover with foil.
  • Bake 20 minutes, until the bananas get soft.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the oats, half of the walnuts, baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and salt; stir together.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining maple syrup, milk, egg, and vanilla extract.
  • Remove the fruit from the oven, then pour the oat mixture over the baked fruit.
  • Pour the milk mixture over the oats, making sure to distribute the mixture as evenly as possible over the oats.
  • Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and walnuts over the the top.
  • Bake the oatmeal for about 35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the oatmeal has set. Serve warm from the oven.
