Baked oatmeal is just as satisfying as those will be…or at least we can pretend 😉 Seriously though, this is my new favorite twist on a simple hot bowl of oatmeal. I love the sweetness of the banana and the crunchiness from the granola on top.
Cinnamon Banana Crunch Baked Oatmeal (For One!)
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/3 cup milk of choice (I used almond milk)
1 teaspoon syrup (I used the light variety)
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 banana, sliced
Extra sprinkle of cinnamon for topping
1 tablespoon granola
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray small loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, add oats, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda and brown sugar. Whisk thoroughly.
3. In a separate small bowl, add milk, syrup and vanilla extract. Whisk until well combined. Add to oat mixture and whisk or stir until all ingredients are well incorporated. Gently fold in sliced bananas and sprinkle with a little more cinnamon.
4. Pour mixture into loaf pan. Bake for 17-18 minutes (oats will become golden brown). Remove from oven and top with granola. Let cool in pan 5-10 minutes. Serve while still hot.
