Finally tried a baked oatmeal recipe and this one did not disappoint! It’s really quick and easy to mix the ingredients together and throw in a casserole dish to bake. We enjoyed this more as a snack, but if you throw in some protein powder I'd say this is a great meal prep recipe for breakfast. I made this 12 servings (as opposed to the recipe suggestion of 6 servings) which came out to 25g Carbs, 12g Fat, and 5g Protein, hence the suggestion to add some more protein with this if you're enjoying it as a meal. Anyways, the original recipe calls for using a 9x9 inch casserole dish, but I used a 9x13 inch and baked for 35 minutes and that worked out just fine. Banana sizes can vary so I like that the recipe indicates about 1 1/3 cups mashed. I used about 300g if that measurement is helpful to anyone. I always reduce chocolate amount, so I opted for just spreading the 1/3 cup between the mix-in and topping, and same goes for the shredded coconut. This was certainly a delicious treat in our home for a few days and I will definitely be experimenting with adding some protein powder next time around! Let me know if you give this one a try and if you make any personal adjustments.
