Nothing screams Fall quite like banana nut baked goods. Well, aside from pumpkin spice – but you get what I’m saying. Baked oatmeal is basically the greatest creation ever. You take something classic and transform it into something decadent and gourmet. I feel like baked oatmeal is the perfect dish to take to a friend’s house for brunch or to keep in the fridge for a quick and easy breakfast in a pinch.
You can really take this concept and apply any flavor you like best to it. I’ve done this with blueberries, peaches and if you’re feeling super decadent – peanut butter and dark chocolate. It goes from cliche breakfast to super satisfying, almost dessert-like breakfast. Give it a try and thank me later. If you’re a fan of bread pudding or fruit crisps – you will LOVE this! I’m personally a huge fan of baked oatmeal because it’s thicker and heartier overall. Closer to a granola bar than a bowl of mush. You can always adjust the amount of liquid if you want to thin it out more. Either way it will be delicious!
What is your favorite thing about Fall? I think I’m most looking forward to spending even more time with my family for the holidays. Of course I do very much enjoy the cooler weather, I’m happiest when I’m cooking with my loved ones and bundled up by the fire. Nothing beats that!
You can definitely expect to see lots of fun recipes this season. If you have any requests, I’m all ears. Please leave me a comment below letting me know what YOU want to see on here.
