A great way to use up ripe bananas!
If you’re like me and always seem to have ripe bananas sitting on your kitchen counter, this recipe is a great way to use them up! This Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal uses 2 ripe bananas, so it’s perfectly banana-y! Also, if you’re looking for more banana recipes, here are some I’ve shared over the years, including cakes, pudding, loaves, muffins and more.
Bake it now or bake it later.
This Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal is one of those recipes that can be made ahead of time, but you can also bake it the same day you make it. If you want to make it the day before you want to serve it, just assemble, cover and refrigerate overnight, then bake in the morning. If you wish to assemble and bake it the same day, just assemble, let sit for at least 15 minutes, then bake.
Great for busy mornings!
When we have busy weekends schedules, baked oatmeal recipes are my go-to breakfast. I like that I can assemble them the night before, then I pop them into the oven while everyone is getting ready (including me!). And if I’m really organized I’ll make one on Sunday night so it’s ready to go Monday morning for the kids before they head off to school (this is such a meal prep time saver that I love). Baked oatmeals are also a great time saver for overnight guests and holiday brunches.
About the Ingredients:
- Oats: I like to use quick oats for this baked oatmeal, but you can also use rolled oats.
- Bananas: Use 2 ripe bananas. Mash until smooth, with no chunks.
- Milk: You can use 1, 2 or 3% milk for this recipe. The creamier the milk, the creamier the oatmeal. You can also use a non-dairy milk like oat milk or almond milk.
Tips & Tricks
- Serve this baked oatmeal with: Milk or cream, and extra brown sugar or maple syrup if you like.
- Optional Additions: You can add 1/4 cup chopped nuts like pecans or walnuts, or chocolate chips to this recipe for a real treat! Sometimes for extra nutrition I like to add in 1 – 2 tsp of chia seeds and 1 tbsp of flax seed.
- Tip! I like to use a hand blender to blend the wet ingredients (milk, eggs, oil, and vanilla with the cinnamon too).
- Leftovers: Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 – 3 days. Just reheat individual portions in the microwave.
