Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal



This Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal (for one) was the perfect breakfast for me on a day I needed a little indulgence. I woke up to a gloomy, rainy day, which always puts me in the mood to bake something. The combination of the the flavors of banana bread and oatmeal sounded so delicious, when I saw this recipe and a serving for one was the perfect treat to brighten my morning.

The recipe was quick and easy to mix together and smells wonderful baking. Before I finished my first cup of coffee, the oatmeal was finished baking and ready for me to try. It really did taste like banana bread. As you can see, there is hardly any sugar in the recipe, and I even used Splenda, so it is perfect for me. There is plenty of natural sweetness from the added banana.

The silence of the morning, my favorite coffee with lots of cream and this indulgence, all made a gloomy morning seem a little brighter.

Happy Wednesday!


Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal (for one)

1/3 cup oatmeal

1/4 tsp. brown sugar (splenda)
