A breakfast this decadent should be illegal. Especially on a Tuesday. But have no fear: this treat still fits within the lines of a healthy morning start! It is whole grain, sugar-free, vegan and filling! I woke up this morning to a frigid apartment and a long day of studying, so I decided to whip up this treat to start my day off on a bright note. It is just as easy as stove-top oatmeal, since you can leave the oven timer to remind you about your breakfast as you go about your morning. The bananas take just minutes in a pan over the stove, and really take this breakfast over the top! Give this breakfast a try the next time you need a bit of a weekday morning pick me up!

Question: What do you do to get through a mid-week slump?

Caramelized Banana Baked Oatmeal

inspired by Katie’s Baked Oatmeal and Eating Well’s Caramelized Bananas

1/2 cup oats

1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk

1/3 large banana, thinly sliced

1 tbsp Earth Balance

juice of 1/2 orange

1/2 tsp cinnamon

2/3 large banana, halved and cut into 2-inch long strips

In a bowl, mix the oats, coconut milk and banana slices. Use the mixing spoon to mash the bananas into the oats. Pour into a ramekin coated with cooking spray and bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Turn the oven setting to broil and bake for 5 for minutes. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small skillet. Add the bananas and squeeze the orange juice over them. As the syrup begins to reduce, flip the bananas and sprinkle with cinnamon. When the bananas are almost falling apart and the syrup is reduced, turn off the heat. Serve the bananas and remaining syrup over the baked oatmeal.

    I quadrupled the oatmeal portion in a ceramic 8×8 pan to feed 2 and to have leftovers–worked perfectly. (I could have used 4 ramekins but they were dirty after a dinner party.)

    Super simple to make and yet my husband said it was “the fanciest oatmeal” he’d ever had. (We eat all sorts of oatmeal, boatmeal, and oatmeal products all the time. Great presentation!
