Once again it is time for this month’s Secret recipe club reveal. I was assigned Katrina’s blog, Baking and boys. What I loved the most about her blog (besides all the wonderful recipes she shares) are the pictures of her family in the side bar 🙂 her passion and love for them shines beautifully through.
Going through Katrina’s recipe archives, there was so much to choose from. I bookmarked her chicken black bean tortilla bake and her blessed no knead bread and honey whole wheat bread but ended up making her banana baked oatmeal. I love oatmeal and my kids do too. We enjoy it in a variety of ways, granola, refrigerator oatmeal, carrot cake oatmeal but I have never tried baked oatmeal.
Not only did baked oatmeal turn out to be super quick and easy to make, it also stays in great condition in the fridge for days. Added to that, the combination of bananas, honey and oatmeal is one you don’t want to miss if you have not tried it before. The best part is, in 15- 20 minutes you can have enough baked oatmeal to last you a few days. Store it in the fridge and all you have to do in the morning is top it with some milk or fruits and breakfast is served. It is a great make ahead breakfast for busy mornings.
The banana, honey and walnut baked oatmeal was a huge hit with the kids, they ate it for 3 days in a row topped with strawberries and more bananas and are demanding that I make this every week. This recipe is a keeper for sure and I know I will be making it again and again. Thanks Katrina
