Instructions

Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line a square 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper, covering all sides.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the ground flaxseed, milk, coconut oil, vanilla, maple syrup, and mashed banana.
  3. Add in the oats, baking powder, and salt and mix to combine.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
  5. Pour the batter into your baking dish and top with a few extra chocolate chips and walnuts.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Then allow it to chill for at least an hour to fully set before cutting into 4 servings (you can also make this a day ahead and chill overnight). Top your slice with a tablespoon of natural peanut butter and enjoy! Store the rest in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
