Stuffed Banana Baked Oatmeal Recipe

Baked oatmeal is my #1 go-to breakfast for colder weather.

During the freezing cold never-ending winter of ’13/’14 (please let’s not talk about it), I was on a HUGE baked oatmeal kick. I could prep it the night before, and loved having breakfast ready for me when I arose at 5:50 AM. I was commuting 1 hour and 45 minutes to work in Philly, so this was key.

I also love that baked oatmeal is warm and comforting for those mornings when you just want to stay snuggled in your bed (or in my case this winter, futon) for hours. I’d be lying if I said that having a delicious breakfast waiting for me was not my main motivator for actually getting out of bed most mornings. ; )

easy stuffed banana baked oatmeal recipe is perfect for colder weather

Just like regular/overnight oats, there are tons of variations of baked oatmeal. But the easiest way to make your “boatmeal” feel super indulgent is by making it stuffed. It’s 10x easier than it sounds!

Stuffed Banana Baked Oatmeal

This single-serving baked oatmeal is perfect for chilly mornings! It’s easily customizable, so feel free to experiment with different flavor combos, nut butters, etc.

serves 1
prep time: 5 minutes
cook time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 stevia packet
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • optional: mix-ins of your choice – chopped nuts, chia seeds, shredded coconut, etc.*

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F (I use my toaster oven).
  2. Coat a small oven-safe ramekin with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine all ingredients except for banana slices. The consistency should be thick and not too milky (if necessary, add more coconut flour to thicken).
  4. Spoon half the mixture into the ramekin.
  5. Layer the banana slices to coat the oats entirely.
  6. Add the rest of the oats on top of the bananas.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until slightly brown on top.
  8. Allow to cool before serving, or refrigerate overnight and microwave for ~1:30 in the morning.
  9. Top with peanut butter/Greek yogurt/whatever you like. Enjoy! : )

* Note: I added some coconut butter to the mixture this time. Obsessed right now! Peanut butter would work nicely, too.

Your Turn-

  • Baked oatmeal — love it or leave it?

    • Thanks, Sam! Honestly I just prep my oatmeal how I normally would (the kind you’d microwave or even use as overnight oats), add a little baking powder, and attempt to bake it, haha. Some come out better than others, but I always love the banana layer. 🙂 Obv egg white oats are a classic for adding protein, but you can totally sub the cocoa powder for a chocolate protein you like!

  2. I think I’m seeing the end of my smoothie train, only because it’s so cold – and this could definitely be the next best thing! The egg whites are great because they add that protein too- can’t wait to try it!
