Happy Halloween! I’m so disappointed that I was unable to share any Halloween themed goodies with you this year. I had it all planned out to bake Halloween appropriate sugar cookies for you this past weekend, but then I got really sick and spent most of the weekend passed out in bed. Instead, I’ll just have to tell you about this blueberry banana baked oatmeal with a promise of spookier treats next year!
I love this blueberry banana baked oatmeal because it’s so easy to put together, and makes for such a fast and filling breakfast in the mornings – just a quick zap in the microwave and you’ll have oatmeal that tastes and smells like you just took it out of the oven! A bonus is that you can use frozen blueberries, making it perfect for those cooler mornings when you’re missing summer.
Blueberry Banana Baked Oatmeal
1.5 cups (3 medium) mashed bananas
2 large eggs
1/4 cup white sugar
3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. baking powder
2 cups milk
2.5 cups old fashioned oats
8 oz. frozen blueberries
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Mash the bananas in a measuring cup, starting with two or three and adding more until you have 1.5 cups of banana mash.
Combine the banana mash in the large bowl with the eggs, sugar, vanilla, salt, and baking powder. Whisk to combine. Add the milk and whisk again until smooth.
Stir in the dry old-fashioned oats. Lastly, stir in the frozen blueberries (keeping them frozen and stirring them in last helps prevent Bake in the preheated 375 degree oven and bake for about 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the center is no longer wet to the touch.
Serve warm or refrigerate until ready to eat. These oats can be quickly reheated in the microwave each morning for a quick, filling breakfast.
