Both baked oats and banana bread have been all the rage for the last year, so I thought I would combine the two in this delicious, quick, and easy to make banana baked oatmeal recipe.
What you will need to make this recipe
- bananas- use bananas that are soft and just a little spotty.
- peanut butter: I like to use the creamy natural peanut butter. This kind only has peanuts and salt as the ingredients.
- maple syrup (optional): the bananas add a lot of sweetness, so you can actually leave out the maple syrup, but I have a major sweet tooth so I really like adding a tablespoon.
- baking powder
- dairy free milk: any dairy free milk will work for this recipe.
- chocolate chips: I use vegan dark chocolate chunks for this recipe. I get mine from Whole Foods from their 365 brand. Here is what they look like.
You will also need a blender to combine the ingredients and an oven safe dish to bake the oats in.
You can make this as one large bowl of baked oatmeal, or split it between two bowls and make two servings.
How to make the banana baked oatmeal
To a blender, add all of the ingredients (except the chocolate chips). Blend until you get a runny batter.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Transfer the batter into an oven safe dish and bake for 30-35 minutes at 350F/ 175C.
