Individual Banana Baked Oatmeal for Secret Recipe Club

I was pretty excited about this month’s Secret Recipe Club because I moved to a new group. This is where food bloggers are assigned another foodie’s blog, select and prepare a recipe, and then share our experiences on the same day. This month I had Christina’s Mis-Cakes Oven Adventures, a blog dedicated to baking, sweets, and desserts. Since I am having trouble this winter keeping the same unwanted three pounds off (and on and off and on and off), I perused her blog with an eye for something healthy. I must say that the maple bacon cinnamon buns looked like something we’d love, and being a peanut butter-aholic, the peanut butter cookie blueberry bars caught my eye as well. Not being a baker, I enjoyed reading the tips and tricks section too.

I finally decided on the individual banana baked oatmeal, super healthy and easy, and next time I make these, I will add more cinnamon, a little nutmeg, and blueberries. Her recipe calls for cookie butter (no idea what that is), but I slathered mine with a spoonful of peanut butter as soon as it came out of the oven, which was a nice boost of good fat and protein. Thanks for the recipe, Christina!
Individual Banana Baked Oatmeal
Makes one serving

1 medium ripe banana
1/3 c milk (I used almond milk for mind, skim milk for Craig’s)
1 egg white
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/3 c large flake oats
1/4 tsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp all spice
Move oven rack to the middle position and preheat to 350 F.

In a small bowl mix together oats, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and all spice. Set aside.

In a medium bowl mash banana, add egg white and vanilla. Mix until combined. Add in your oat mixture. Once combined pour into an oven safe bowl such as a large ramekin.

Bake for 30 minutes or until puffy and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

  4. I love oatmeal for breakfast! This looks delicious--I like how the banana is already mixed in so I wouldn't have to eat one on the side :) Great SRC choice!

    1. Your kids will love this, and I imagine it's a very flexible recipe, adaptable to likes and what you have on hand. Can't wait to try it with fresh peaches this summer. Thanks for stopping by, and I will check out your recipe.

  8. These look like fun! Really easy to customize for each person's tastes (like almond milk for you, skim for Craig). Nice lighting on the top photo - you can really see the texture of this!

    1. John, I have a longgggggggggg way to go on the photography, but thank you. At least I have the cooking part down. Yes, easily adaptable, and I always enjoy individual portions of anything (pot pies, baked pasta, cobblers).
