Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal

Saturdays seem to always be the days we get caught up on errands, meet up with friends & fulfill those fun weekend plans we’ve been dreaming about all week. But Sundays are a bit more relaxing. Days that start out at a slower pace. Days that are often devoted to the quiet hobbies of reading, movie watching and baking. And I love starting my Sundays out with a breakfast I wouldn’t ordinarily have time to prepare during the busy week. Sometimes I make the classic pancakes or waffles, but today called for something a little different. And when I stumbled upon this healthy but delcious baked oatmeal recipe on Healthy Food For Living, I knew I’d found my perfect Sunday breakfast. This baked oatmeal is sweet and hearty and puffs up like a beautiful souffle. I garnished mine with some caramelized banans and toasted pecans, but I’m sure it would be just as delicious on its own. Enjoy your Sunday!
