Baked Banana Bread Oatmeal

By Tuesday, May 07, 2013 , , , ,




This is one of my favourite breakfasts on a lazy Saturday morning. Although it takes a little longer than your standard bowl of oatmeal, because you need to preheat the oven, it's worth it! You'll never believe that this is just a bowl of oatmeal baked in the oven, it truly tastes like a dessert.

You will need:

1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup almond milk
1 ripe banana
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder

Firstly preheat your oven to 180C and allow it to warm up whilst you cook. Soak your oats in the almond milk for 10-15 minutes to soften up, and meanwhile, mash your banana roughly with a fork, leaving a few slices behind for decoration. Combine the oats, vanilla extract, baking powder and banana in a bowl. Pour into a small baking dish and top with the remaining slices of banana and some fresh blueberries. Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until crispy and browned on the top, and serve with lots of peanut butter

  1. Made this for brekky this morning, soo good! And totally worth the wait. I took it over the top with maple roasted pecans, a smidge of butter (!) on top and a drizzle of maple! So indulgent!

  2. Do you mean top the oatmeal before it goes into the oven or when it comes out?

    1. That would stop it from being vegan, but if you want to, then yes

  7. Hi Siobhan, really want to make this but is the baking powder essential? Just wondering because 1 tsp baking powder is a lot of sodium for 1 portion?

  8. Hi Siobhan! I see some.of your old comments asked abt egg or flax egg but I do not see it in the actual recipe. Is this something I should ignore?

  11. Hi Siobhan! I looove this recipe, make it every weekend :) unfortunately I don't have any milk on me right now, do you there is any way I could make this with water? Maybe if I decreased the amount of liquid because water is thinner? Hopefully the banana could help make up for it in creaminess, or maybe I could add some flaxseed to help absorb? Thanks :( x

    1. I think just using water would be okay, it might not be quite creamy but I'm sure it'll be yummy anyway :)

    1. No it couldn't, it wouldn't bake and go crispy on top, it would just cook exactly the same as regular oatmeal does!

  16. I made this for breakfast this morning and it was delicious!! Although I struggled to finish it, could you put some of the leftovers in the fridge for the next day? If not, I'll just half the measurements you suggest :)

    Thank you for sharing your recipes, hints and tips Siobhan. You have inspired me to embrace my food intolerances and to not let it ruin my attitude towards food/eating in general x

    1. 1/2 cup of oats isn't really very much, plus breakfast is supposed to be the biggest meal of the day, but I suppose it is up to you. I wouldn't recommend eating it the next day though

  17. Hi Siobhan! Absolutely love this recipe, I'm currently making it for the second time for breakfast, except this time I'm making two cause my bf loved it too!

  18. I just made this. It is amazing and comforting. I didn't have blueberries at hand but added some chopped hazelnuts so they had a little bit of a crunch. I've been following you for quiet a while now in Instagram and wanted to say thank you and keep up the good work! :) You were one of the people who convinced me that it's better to cut out meat and animal products of my diet. Recently I took the first step, now only the eggs and milk have to go but I think that I'm on the right path and thanks to you and your recipes it will be very easy to become fully vegan. Thank you so much!
