Oatmeal has been a favorite breakfast in our house for years. On the stove, in the oven, in the crockpot or turned into granola, there really isn’t a way in which we don’t enjoy oatmeal. My kids can stir together a baked oatmeal recipe and get it in the oven all by themselves now. They typically ask if they can make it at least once a week.
This baked oatmeal is loaded with peanut butter and bananas and lightly sweetened with honey. I had the idea for it a while back and I’d scribbled out the recipe already, so I handed my notes to my 10 year old and went to relax with my morning coffee while he made breakfast for all of us. (Side note: I thought I’d miss having little ones in the house, but having older kids has turned out to be pretty awesome!)
My youngest declared this one of his best breakfasts ever and begged for the leftovers the next day. Another great thing about baked oatmeal is that most of the time, we get two meals out of it. It freezes great and keeps nicely in the refrigerator for a few days as well.
