Baked oatmeal has been one of my favorite breakfasts and on cold mornings I can't think of anything better to make. It's hearty, filling, and packed with more richer flavors than an instant or quickly prepared bowl of oats. This version deepens the banana flavor by letting it caramelize on top and you could add any number of things to pack in even more flavor. Nuts, chocolate chips, more fruit, coconut, or nut butters would all be delicious.
