Healthy Baked Banana Blueberry Oatmeal

Hope everyone is having a great week! I had some browning bananas after neglecting to eat them last week so I decided to modify the blueberry baked oatmeal recipe to incorporate them. It was definitely a success! Such a yummy week of no-prep-required breakfasts! With the addition of the mashed bananas, I left out the butter, applesauce, and yogurt. They also added a nice sweetness without having to feel like you wish you had added sugar.

Banana Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

Ingredients

2 cups old fashioned oats

1 cup quinoa flakes

1/4 cup flaxseed meal

3/4 cup quick barley

4 cups water

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup egg whites

3 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp salt

2 tsp baking powder

3 tsp vanilla extract

3 bananas, mashed (I had 3 very ripe ones which I mashed, then bought a nice yellow one to slice for garnish on top)

3 cups blueberries

*optional additional banana for garnish

Directions

1. Combine oats, quinoa, flaxseed and barley in a large bowl with the water and mashed bananas. Allow to sit for an hour.  (**I didn’t have quinoa flakes or barley on hand this time, so I just used 3-3/4 cups quick oats and then the flaxseed meal, and didn’t bother letting them sit for an hour, just 2 minutes, if that, haha)

2. Combine remaining ingredients in a separate bowl, except the blueberries.

3. Spray a 9×13 pan and add half of the blueberries, spread evenly around the pan.

4. Combine egg mixture with oat mixture and pour into prepared pan. Sprinkle with remaining berries (and optional sliced banana if desired) and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until set and browned on top.

Serves about 8
