I took advantage of the extra weekend day over MLK weekend to make myself a fun and fancy breakfast for the week. I had seen the recipe for Blueberry-Bannana Baked Oatmeal over at skinnytaste a few days ago when she posted it. I've been thinking about it ever since then, so this seemed the perfect day to go for it. I didn't exactly follow her recipe, but modified it with a few substitutaions based on all the things I forgot to pick up from Giant Eagle and my general disinterest in all things measured.
the better part of a pint of blueberries
2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup old fashioned oats
fat free milk
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
What I did....
-Preheat oven to 375.
-Spray a 9x9 pan with canola oil
-I sliced the bananas and put them on the bottom of the pan. Covered the banana goodness with about half the blueberries and covered the fruit with about 1 tsp of cinamon and about 1 tsp of brown sugar (I had no honey at home, oops). I added a little water (like 1 tbl) and baked for about 15 minutes
- After the fruit came out I spread the oats over the top and covered evenly with the liquids. It seemed like a little more liquid was needed so I added some extra milk (the liquid didn't cover the oats and since I was using regular oats instead of quick cook I thought extra liquid would be needed). Then i topped with more blueberries and pecans and baked for about 30 minutes.
