Recipe: Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal

Healthy Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal Recipe - low fat, sugar free, gluten free, clean eating

Phew, what a busy weekend we had! Busy, but incredibly productive and thought provoking - in case you missed our posts on Friday or Sunday, this weekend was our Church's "Challenge Weekend" with Paul Borden (who came all the way from Sacramento CA from Growing Healthy Churches). It was so incredible to see so many of our church members come together to learn and give their insight on ways our little (but oh so lovable) church can grow. 

It was three jam packed days but Jesse and I finished our weekend off with a date night at the movies where we saw Mr Peabody and Sherman. Definitely a must see - yes, we like kids movies, but this one was really good! And to top off a great weekend, Jesse had yesterday off so we spent the day together again and I made some incredible brownies!

But today, I want to tell you about one of our latest breakfast obsessions here in the SIL house - Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal.

We may as well be monkeys in the SIL house. Seriously, we go through so many bananas. Jesse actually has a monkey onesie (don't even ask, it was clearly a purchase made when Kristy wasn't around) so he's probably already becoming one.

Banana bread is a SIL family fave in any shape or form - muffins, loaves, raw bites, pancakes - and now in baked oatmeal form too!

This recipe has just seven ingredients and is so easy to make. We usually make it the night before and then let it chill in the fridge before slicing in the morning - that way you can either heat it up or eat it chilled, depending on what you prefer! 

It makes four large squares or six smaller slices. Jesse and I like it topped with peanut butter or cream cheese with a dash of maple syrup - but you can top it with whatever you fancy!

And if you feel like getting a little bit fancier, add in some mix ins - we've added in shredded coconut, chocolate chips, cinnamon and nuts and they all work perfectly, just make it your own!

But let me give you the recipe! >>

  1. I love banana bread! I just haven't made it in years :/ This looks delicious though! But I would have to try it was a flax egg ;) Haha, but the PB, that totally takes it over the takes anything over the top!

    What!!!! Girl, you need to get onto making some ASAP!

    LOVE banana bread but I've never actually made it myself.... When I was in school my mom would give me a loaf every now and then so I never needed to make some. Not the case anymore! I should definitely give this a try.

  4. This looks wonderful! What a great way to start the day.

    1. Hi there, I don't have the calorie count, however, you can find out the exact nutritional information for the recipe using the ingredients you choose by using an app like MyFitnessPal :)

  8. Do you have to use gluten free oats ? I don’t use them and have just bought minute oats and have regular oats.

    1. If you don't need it to be gluten free you can use regular oats.
