Serves: Makes 9 servings
Ingredients
  • 2 cups rolled oats (use gluten-free, if necessary)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1½ cups preferred milk*
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup natural peanut butter
  • 4 very ripe bananas
Optional Add-ins:
  • ¼ cup maple syrup (if you prefer a sweeter baked oatmeal)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8x8 inch square or 7x5 inch rectangular baking dish.
  2. Combine the rolled oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Next, add milk, egg, vanilla, peanut butter, and maple syrup (if using). Stir to combine.
  4. Mash two of the bananas and fold them into the oatmeal mixture. Slice the remaining two bananas into quarter inch slices.
  5. Place half of the sliced bananas across the bottom of the prepared dish. Spread half of the oatmeal mixture over the banana slices. Evenly distribute the remaining banana slices over the oatmeal layer. Pour the remaining oatmeal mixture over the second layer of sliced bananas and spread it around with a spoon or spatula until evenly distributed.
  6. Place in oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  7. To serve, top with a drizzle of peanut butter and additional banana slices, if desired.
Notes
* I recommend using whole milk for babies and a lower fat milk option for adults. You can sub in a milk alternative such as unsweetened almond milk if dairy-free.
