Baked Oatmeal with Blueberries and Bananas

Baked Oatmeal with Blueberries and Bananas

Serves: 4-6

Here's a fit and healthy way to start your day.  And you'll enjoy it too!  If you need a little added sweetness, try drizzling syrup on top.  This was enjoyed by adults and kids alike!
Slightly adapted from: Skinny Taste blog

3 medium ripe bananas, (the riper the better) sliced into 1/2" pieces
3 cups blueberries
1/2 cup honey (or agave)
2 cup uncooked quick oats
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp pinch of salt
2 cups fat free milk (or any milk you desire)
2 egg
2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 375° F. Lightly spray a 13" x 9" baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.

Arrange the banana slices in a single layer on the bottom of the ceramic dish. Sprinkle half of the blueberries over the bananas, 1 tsp of the cinnamon, 2 tbsp of the honey and cover with foil. Bake 15 minutes, until the bananas get soft.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the oats, half of nuts, baking powder, remaining cinnamon, and salt; stir together. In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining honey, milk, egg, and vanilla extract.

Remove the bananas from the oven, then pour the oat mixture over the bananas and blueberries.

Pour the milk mixture over the oats, making sure to distribute the mixture as evenly as possible over the oats. Sprinkle the remaining blueberries and walnuts over the the top.

Bake the oatmeal for about 30-40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the oatmeal has set. Serve warm from the oven.
