Baked Banana Oatmeal (Dairy & Gluten Free)

I’ve been thinking about creating this baked banana oatmeal for a little while now as I thought baking whole banana’s into the mix would not only taste amazing but look stunning. (The base is an adapted version of my banana flapjack base with a few extras).

This baked banana oatmeal is really easy to make, you literally just have to mix all the ingredients and bake for 25 minutes and it’s so worth it  – I love its dense, sticky, sweetness. A very nourishing and delicious breakfast.

I have a new found love of banana’s as they are one of the most versatile ingredients and an amazing base for so many plant based desserts,  I really would recommend using the ripest banana’s as it makes such a difference to the taste.
