I like oatmeal okay. I mean, is plain old oatmeal anyone’s favorite food? It IS healthy, though, and if you hand me a bowl cooled with milk and sweetened with brown sugar, I’m certainly not going to refuse it.

I kind of hate cooking oatmeal though. It either sticks like heck to the bottom of the pan or explodes all over the microwave (or is that just me?). So I LOVE baked oatmeals. I’ve made Lynn’s Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal several times and always enjoy it. Much easier clean-up than regular oatmeal, with the added plus that it’s way easier to get my kids to eat baked oatmeal – it looks like a cookie when you cut it! Yum!

This version used up a ripe banana on the counter. It seems that I always have them laying around; see: Graham Cracker Banana Bread, Banana Bread Muffins, Banana-Orange Bread, Banana Couscous, Banana Chocolate Snack Cake

I didn’t have much milk, so I also substituted out most of it for vanilla yogurt. I liked the little tang this added! But you can just use milk if you want.

One thought on “Peanut Butter Banana Baked Oatmeal

  1. I also have issues with cooking hot cereals in the microwave and gave it up for quite a while because the mess irritates me, not to mention having to start breakfast all over again. I use some high sided chili bowls that are Corningware and figured out the max time before boiling over and I am back to cooking in the microwave.
    The baked oatmeal looks interesting but I haven’t tried baking it before. I think I would enjoy the cookie-like aspect of it. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
