American baked oats (also referred to as baked oatmeal) made up as muffins make a speedy breakfast.
Good porridge takes time which is sometimes that is in short supply in the morning. I whip up a batch of these baked oats on Sunday and then during the week just reheat and eat. Two minutes to a healthy breakfast.
If you like these, you’ll also like our blueberry baked oats – it is like cake with a big dollop of yoghurt, maple syrup and coconut.
American Baked Oatmeal
I use an overripe banana instead of oil or butter in this baked oatmeal recipe. It keeps the fat content down. I always have a stash of peeled, overripe bananas in the freezer for baked oatmeal and smoothies. Also, I have cut the sugar back in the recipe because I add a dollop of maple syrup before digging in.SaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSave
