We generally eat oatmeal every morning. On workdays, it’s easier if it is already prepared and all we have to do is re-heat it. Baked oatmeal works very well for this as you can make several servings at once and then reheat as needed. In fact, I often mix the ingredients the night before and then bake while I’m in the shower. The leftovers are saved for an even quicker breakfast for the following two days.
I often make Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal. I tried using banana instead of canned pumpkin recently and loved how it tasted like banana bread. Like banana bread, the bananas should be ripe. However, a few brown speckles is all that is needed versus the super-ripe bananas best for banana bread. I use a blender to mix the ingredients, but a whisk or strong fork should work too.
Give this a try. It’s easy, healthy and a great way to use up ripening bananas.
