A simple and delicious Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal free of refined sugar that makes the perfect hearty breakfast that will keep you full all morning.

Lately I have been making baked oatmeal pretty much every week. We can't get enough. It all started a few weeks back when I knew we had a particularly crazy week ahead of us. Not wanting to waste time making breakfast in the morning, I made a big batch of baked oatmeal and some freezer quesadillas to get us through the week. Then something crazy happened - the oatmeal was gone first. In this Mexican loving, cheese loving, bean loving house - that was quite the feat. But something about the hearty oatmeal on a cold morning drew us all in. Personally I like to warm mine up in the microwave first and then pour some extra milk on top. Truth be told, I am eating a big bowl of this oatmeal while I am writing this post.

Since we have been eating all the baked oatmeal, I have been trying out all different combinations but this Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal has definitely been a stand-out. The bananas act as a natural sweetener and also add a richness and creaminess to the oats. They are the secret weapon to really good baked oats in my opinion. Then it is just the standard cast of characters - oats, milk, eggs, baking powder, cinnamon, and vanilla - with some added strawberries because they make everything taste better.

This oatmeal keeps well in the fridge, just make sure to let it cool before refrigerating it. To reheat, you can microwave it plain or with some added milk to make a creamier oatmeal. I have also been known to eat baked oatmeal cold when I am in a rush, but it's definitely better warm. Don't be afraid to add some extra topping either. Its delicious with chopped nuts, yogurt, nut butters, or a drizzle of honey.

Also no one will blame you for throwing some chocolate chips on top like I did. So good.

I had to share, I didn't know that this should be eaten like any oatmeal. I thought it would be more of a bar, or casserole. hahaha! I had only seen the recipe through the weekly meal plan, so I didn't get to see the write up about it. Mine turned out mushy, I searched the recipe to see if there were any comments to see what I did wrong. Now I know, its the way I was eating it. lol!!!!!
