peach blueberry oatmeal bake

This SUPER delicious oatmeal bake with peaches, blueberries and bananas has been my go-to breakfast as of late. I prep and bake it on Sunday, then have it for breakfast over the next few days.

It’s totally filling, and if I’m going to be working out in the a.m., it gives me a good boost of energy.

I use a combination of fresh bananas and frozen fruit because it’s easy (I don’t have to wash and cut), but sometimes I also use fresh berries (Costco FTW!).

This dish is also perfect for brinner (breakfast for dinner). Just add scrambled eggs and bacon on the side. BOOM! Delish! 😁

Blueberry, Peach and Banana Oatmeal Bake

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 medium ripe bananas (ideally, you want ones with lots of brown/black spots because they’re more flavorful), sliced into 1/2″ thick rounds
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup frozen peaches
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp honey (you can also substitute with maple syrup)
  • 1 cup uncooked rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup whole milk (you can substitute with whatever milk you have on hand)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 350. Lightly grease a 9-by-9 glass or ceramic baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Layer the banana slices on the bottom of the pan and sprinkle 3/4 cup of the blueberries on top, and then drizzle with the honey.
  3. Cover with foil and bake for 15-20 minutes (you want the bananas to be soft).
  4. While the bananas are baking, make the oatmeal mixture by combining the oats, walnuts, baking powder, cinnamon and the salt in a medium-sized bowl. Mix everything together with a fork or a whisk.
  5. In a smaller bowl, make your milk mixture by whisking the milk, maple syrup, egg and vanilla extract.
  6. When the bananas are soft, take them out of the oven and remove the foil (set it aside so you can use it to cover your pan before you put the leftovers in the fridge). Distribute the oat mixture evenly over the bananas.
  7. Give the milk mixture a few whisks, and then pour it evenly over the oats to cover them completely.
  8. Arrange the peach slices on top, then sprinkle the remaining blueberries between the slices.
  9. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until the oatmeal has set and the top is golden brown. Serve warm in slices as is, or place each slice in a bowl and add milk.
