Baked Oatmeal with Blueberries and Bananas

I have been on a bit of an oatmeal kick lately and trying new recipes. They have all been pretty good but I find that I like the taste of the baked oatmeals a lot more then the ones cooked on the stove. This one looked so good that the daycare kids wanted to have it for snack after I got done eating my part for breakfast! :) Beware - read the directions carefully... I got dump happy and didn't realize that a lot of the ingredients needed to be divided and added in different parts of the recipe... Usually my mistakes were fixable, but the 1/4 cup of honey instead of 1 tablespoon at the beginning of the recipe didn't turn out so well! I couldn't believe that it turned out as tasty as it was, even with all my mistakes!! :)

Baked Oatmeal with Blueberries and Bananas
(recipe found at

2 medium ripe bananas, sliced into 1/2" pieces
1 1/2 cup blueberries
1/4 cup honey
1 cup uncooked quick oats
1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 cup fat free milk
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 375. Lightly spray a square baking dish with cooking spray. Arrange the banana slices in a single layer on the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle half of the blueberries over the bananas, 1/4 teaspoon of the cinnamon, 1 tablespoon of the honey and cover with foil. Bake 15 minutes, until bananas get soft. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the oats, half of the nuts, baking powder, remaining cinnamon, and salt and stir together. In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining honey, milk, egg and vanilla. Remove bananas from the oven and pour the oat mixture over the bananas and blueberries. Pour the milk mixture over the oats, making sure to distribute the mixture as evenly as possible over the oats. Sprinkle the remaining blueberries and walnuts over the top. Bake the oatmeal for about 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the oatmeal has set. Serve warm from the oven.
