Maple-Banana Baked Oatmeal Recipe

Tender slices of banana and chopped nuts get an extra dose of sweetness from maple syrup in this baked oatmeal breakfast. . Yvonne Ruperti

Oven-baking oatmeal is a great alternative to stovetop because it's hands-free. It's easy to add in as many extra flavorings (fruit, spices, nuts) as you want. Sweet maple syrup, soft banana, and crunchy walnuts make this version a hearty but healthy breakfast.

Why this recipe works:

  • Oven-baking is a no-fuss, hands-off way to cook oatmeal.
  • Sweetness level can be adjusted by drizzling on extra maple syrup after baking.
