Take a Whiff: Scrumptious Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal

Imagine the smell of Strawberries. Bananas. Chocolate. Oatmeal. Coming from your oven. Pure yumminess. 

You the scene in Frozen where Elsa and Ana take a big sniff of the air and say 'chocolate' at the same time? (Oh you don't know?) Well it's a NIGHTLY ritual at the Wright household (Palm to forehead right now!). 

Never had baked oatmeal? Then this is the recipe to try!

If you've seen THIS POST or THIS know I LOVE my morning waffles! It was hard to give it up this morn...but worth it.

So a typical week includes me making (er...throwing ingredients into a crockpot) for Eric's apple cinnamon oatmeal.

I happen to come across this baked oatmeal a couple days ago and figured I'd give it a try...maybe add a little variety to Eric's morning!

This would even be a great recipe for Easter morning.

So here goes....I'll get to be recipe now! This was adapted from Love of Family and Home.

Scrumptious Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal
8 servings
Carbs - 32, Protein - 4.5, Fat - 5.5

2 Cups Old Fashioned Oats
⅓ Cup Brown Sugar (I used the Splenda blend)
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Cinnamon
½ tsp Salt
½ Cup Chocolate Chips
2 Cups Strawberries (mix in blueberries if desired)
1 Ripe Banana
2 Cups fat free Milk (or even almond milk)
1 Large Egg
2 Tbsp melted coconut oil (or reg butter)
1 tsp Vanilla

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spray a 9x11 casserole dish with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, mix oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, half the chocolate chips, & half the berries. Stir well and pour into casserole dish. Add the other half of the berries & chocolate chips to the top of the mixture. Then, slice the banana & add to top.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine milk, egg, butter, & vanilla. Whisk thoroughly. Immediately pour on top of oatmeal mixture or your coconut oil will start clumping. Make sure the all oats are evenly soaked.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes. Then, remove casserole & add a tablespoon of brown sugar to the top of the casserole for added sweetness (optional.) Bake for an additional 10 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

Enjoy this Wednesday y'all!
