My kids love this quick breakfast. I make it the night before so it’s ready for them in the morning. Grab one and pop it in the microwave for a few seconds and it’s ready to go.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Oatmeal
  • ½ cups Sugar
  • ½ cups Light Brown Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoons Nutmeg

  • 1-½ cup Flour
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 whole Overripe Bananas Smashed
  • 1 cup Melted Butter
  • 1 cup Chopped Nuts

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1. Add oatmeal to a food processor. Pulse until there are no longer any big pieces of oatmeal.
2. Add sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, salt and flour to the food processor. Pulse until well combined; set aside.

My kids and I love this. I make it with 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup applesauce, to cut down on the fat. Its just delicious. Thanks

I only had one banana, so I halved the recipe. It turned out great!! It had a great texture and a wonderful taste. Now I’m just anxiously waiting for the rest of my bananas to get ripe enough to make more!

I made these this evening…they are DELICIOUS!

Mine turned out a little crumbly, but it might be because I added a little flax seed into the recipe…

Thanks for the recipe–Yum!

Absolutely delicious! I too used flax eggs, only because I was out of eggs. I also used 1/2 cup of dark choc. chips instead of the walnuts because we were making it for a dessert, not breakfast. Came out so light and fluffy.

I was worried that my picky family would detect the nutrition in the oats, bananas, and flax (substituted for the eggs). But it was so good, they didn’t even notice the healthy stuff! They asked for seconds and even thirds!
