Baked Banana Bread Oatmeal

Breakfast…eh…not my favorite meal. I know a lot of people who could eat breakfast anytime of the day, including my fiancé. Me? Not so much. I’ve been known to go out for breakfast/brunch and order a lunch/dinner dish. Weird, I know.

But… breakfast has to be made. Since I’m not much of a breakfast eater or cook I was really excited to find this simple Baked Banana Bread Oatmeal recipe in the cookbook, Budget Bytes by Beth Moncel.

This is a fabulous cookbook if you are looking for great dishes that don’t cost a fortune to make. She shares ways to stock your kitchen and what freezes well so you can get the best bang for your buck. I highly recommend it.

This dish is perfect to make on a Sunday night, cool and then dish up into little to-go containers. There is enough oatmeal for an entire work week. I put my fiancés in these little containers I got from Kentucky Fried Chicken. Perfect for him to take to work every morning.

The Baked Banana Bread Oatmeal is moist, packed with a nice banana flavor and has a nice crunch from the walnuts. It’s denser than a traditional oatmeal, but it’s not dry. Very filling. I loved it.
