Easy peanut butter banana baked oatmeal that’s perfect for a healthy breakfast throughout the week. This recipe brings two favorite flavors together that makes for a hearty and delicious meal.
There are two ingredients that I can not go a day without: peanut butter and banana. There will always be a time and place where these two are acceptable and I can assure you I find every way to integrate them into my meals or snacks.
If you ever were to ask me what my absolute favorite breakfast is I most definitely will say oatmeal. So, if you add some banana and peanut butter in there well…that’s heaven in a meal.
Even if you don’t love oatmeal, peanut butter, and banana as much as I do I assure you this breakfast will surely satisfy your tastebuds.
I find that baked oatmeal is the perfect breakfast to meal prep for the week. Simply, baked it on Sunday or Monday and have multiple servings to enjoy throughout the week.
Feel free to get creative with the toppings. My favorites are:
- Peanut butter or any kind of nut butter
- Maple syrup
- Fresh fruit
- Nuts (pecans or walnuts are my favorite)
- Seeds (chia, hemp, pumpkin)
- Sprinkle of coconut sugar
This baked oatmeal consists of nine simple ingredients: banana, non-dairy milk, peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, rolled oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
Feel free to make substitutions based on the ingredients you have on hand, such as other liquid sweeteners (honey, agave, brown rice syrup) for maple syrup, and/or other nut butters for peanut butter.
