Baked Banana Oatmeal

Oatmeal for breakfast means you are eating healthy.

Let's ignore the drippy peanut butter and white chocolate topping. Yes, let's just pretend it's not there and're eating's ok.

Baked Banana Oatmeal (adapted from

1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
dash of salt
3/4 cup of milk ( I used 2% )
1 egg
1/2 cup mashed banana ( I keep little containers of mashed nanners in the freezer )

Mix together dry
Whisk together wet
Pour into greased baking dish (I used a 9x4-yes..weird-if you don't have one you could probably use a loaf ban, or just double everything and use a 9x9)
Bake at 375 for 25 minutes.

You could be perfectly sensible and eat it as is. Or you could be completely ridiculous and melt 1/4 cup of peanut butter w/ a 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips and pour it over the top, like I did. I do ridiculous well. Also..since I forgot to add in the brown sugar from the original recipe, I thought it needed something to make it sweeter. Great combo really..peanut butter and banana, didn't you know?
Oh and I also dashed the top with salt..ssshhh. Just do it. The salt pops this OVER the top.

I think I might now be in LOVE with baked you know. It might be my new favorite way to make it..and stay tuned b/c I'm gonna be making all sorts of different styles of it.

Yum..and filling.
