Want an easy, warm, tasty breakfast? Try this healthy recipe that the whole family will enjoy! It’s easy enough for kids to prepare with parental supervision.

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium ripe bananas, (the riper the better) sliced into 1/2″ pieces
  • 1 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup honey (or agave)
  • 1 cup uncooked quick oats
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup fat free milk (or any milk you desire)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Fat free Greek yogurt for serving (optional)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375° F. Lightly spray an 8 x 8″ or 9 x 9″ ceramic baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.

Arrange the banana slices in a single layer on the bottom of the ceramic dish. Sprinkle half of the blueberries over the bananas along with 1/4 tsp of the cinnamon, 1 tbsp of the honey and cover with foil. Bake 15 minutes, until the bananas get soft.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the oats, half of the nuts, baking powder, remaining cinnamon, and salt. Stir together. In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining honey, milk, egg and vanilla extract.

Remove the bananas from the oven, then pour the oat mixture over the bananas and blueberries.

Pour the milk mixture over the oats, making sure to distribute the mixture as evenly as possible over the oats. Sprinkle the remaining blueberries and walnuts over the top.

Bake
the mixture for about 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the oatmeal has set.

Serve warm from the oven and top with a dollop of Greek yogurt if desired.
