Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal

Hi Everyone,

How was your Saturday?  Mine was pretty nice!  I got up early, did a little blogging and then I went to the farmers market to get more strawberries, than to Trader Joe’s to pick up a basil plant and other goodies.  I came home and worked in my vegetable garden.  I was planning on planting my plants, but by the time I amended my soil it was getting to hot out. Actually it was a perfect day to work in the yard because the sun was shining, not to hot to and there was a slight breeze.  So first thing in the morning I plan on getting my plants in the ground.  I just love gardening, it’s so rewarding, if you don’t kill your plants.  I plan on planting Italian Peppers, Roma tomatoes and Heirloom tomatoes, Burpless Cucumber and English Cucumbers, plus some nice herbs, like thyme, basil and parsley.  Oh I can’t wait for 90 days till picking time starts!  Do you garden?  What do you like to plant?  Flowers?  vegetables?  Fill me in on the details!

Today I have for you a Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal Recipe that is perfect for breakfast.  I actually made this a while ago, I just didn’t get a chance to post it.  I just started dabbling in baked oatmeal, and I have to say I really love it!!  I think it actually fills me up more than regular oatmeal.

Sorry the pictures aren’t great, that’s one of the reasons I haven’t posted it, but it’s so good, I just had to share.  I have made this about three times in the past month.  This one is loaded with fresh strawberries and I topped it with a little banana.  For the topping, I added some cinnamon and sugar from my Trader Joe’s grinder.  If you haven’t tried their Cinnamon and Sugar grinder yet, you should!  A little goes a long way.  I used it in my coffee, yogurt and ice cream too!

One thing I really love about the weekends is breakfast!  I get so excited, thinking of new creations that I can make.  Right now I’m on a major strawberry kick, so I am sure I’ll be sharing all my strawberry recipes with you, so be prepared.  What I find so weird is my family, doesn’t eat breakfast.  Don’t they know it’s the most important meal of the day?  It gives you energy and speeds your metabolism!  I need all the speeding of my metabolism I can get.

  1. Jen, this looks awesome. I love me some oatmeal. I could eat it every morning. Strawberries and bananas- classic! Thanks for sharing.

  2. There’s something about a good oatmeal recipe on the weekend 😉 Love the strawberries in this. I feel like people either love or hate strawberries hot, I’m a lover 🙂

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      I am such a lover of strawberries, probably a little to much! It seems thats all I eat! 🙂

  3. I don’t understand breakfast-skippers either. I always start my day with oatmeal, almond butter, and banana.
    Also–yay for finding another Jennifer!

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      Woohoo! Another Jennifer! 🙂 Your breakfast sounds great!! I’m going to have that for tomorrow!!

  4. If my oatmeal looked this inviting I don’t think I’d ever skip breakfast. 😉

  5. Looks yummy! And, very versatile you can use a whole variety of fruit, depending on what you have at home.

  6. Cassandra Bishop says:

    Mmmm. Strawberry-Banana is such a good combination.

  7. Mmm that looks so good. My weekend was ok. Had a frustrating time with my current experiment in lab that makes me want to pull my hair out because I cannot determine what is going wrong.

  8. Yum I don’t know why I have not tried a baked oatmeal recipe, but this just might have to be my first! Looks so good! And how nice to have breakfast already ready when you wake up!

    Is the calorie count for the whole recipe? I am one of those people that has to finish everything on my plate and this looks like it will be happening!
