Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal
Banana bread baked oatmeal tastes exactly like it sounds. Like banana bread in oatmeal form. It's soft, dense, and full of banana flavor. If you're a banana bread lover, you will LOVE this! Feel free to add fun mix-in's if that's your thing or just keep it simple. Baked oatmeal has changed my life since becoming a mom. It sounds dramatic, but I mean it. It's such an easy breakfast to have on hand and it tastes so good! A great way to fuel up and start my morning. I hope you love this one!
