Whip up a quick breakfast with the Lean Greenbean‘ s recipe for nutty baked oatmeal. High-fiber rolled oats is mixed with some simple pantry items to make a slightly sweet, slightly nutty morning meal. This is an energy dense breakfast food, but you can cut and share as desired.
Ingredients for servings
1 cup rolled oats (certified gluten-free if necessary)
0.75 cup 2% milk
1 large egg
0.25 cup peanut butter (or your favorite nut butter)
0.25 cup mashed banana
0.25 cup raw pumpkin seeds
0.25 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Nut butter (to spread on baked oatmeal)
Sliced fruit or whole berries
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Mash the banana and peanut butter together in a small bowl. Add the oats, milk and egg and mix well. Stir in the baking soda, cinnamon and pumpkin seeds.
Pour into 2 large, greased ramekins (or whatever pan you want to use) and bake at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes. Allow the baked oatmeal to cool for 15 minutes.
Top with a drizzle of nut butter and some fresh fruit if desired.
You can double this recipe and bake in a bigger pan. Lining the bottom of the ramekins or pan with parchment paper makes it easy to remove
