Tips for Success

Use spotty bananas ⟶ Just like with banana bread, you want your bananas to be very ripe (but not completely brown) so you get lots of sweet banana flavor!

Let it cool ⟶ It will be pretty soft in the center still when you remove it from the oven, but it will firm up more as it cools. If you like your oats a little gooey though, let the pan cool for 5 minutes then dig in!

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time45 mins
Course: Breakfast
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed + 3 tbsp water
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • ½ cup soy milk or other plant milk
  • 2 tbsp nut butter
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups (120g) rolled or quick oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • cup add-ins such as chocolate chips, pecans, walnuts, raisins
  • ½ tsp cinnamon** optional

Instructions

  • Mix ground flaxseed and water in a small bowl and set aside to gel for about 5 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8×8" baking pan with parchment paper or lightly grease the pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add bananas and mash with a fork.
  • Add in all the wet ingredients (flax mixture, milk, nut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract). Stir to combine.
  • Add in oats and baking powder. Stir until evenly incorporated.
  • Throw in your add-ins of choice and stir again to evenly incorporate.
  • Transfer the batter to your prepared baking dish. Bake for 45 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool for at least 10 minutes. The oats will firm up more as it cools. Serve warm with some extra plant milk or yogurt, berries, or enjoy as is! Store leftovers covered in the fridge and reheat in the microwave to serve.

Notes

Cinnamon: I like to add cinnamon when adding in nuts and/or raisins, but when I use chocolate chips I leave out the cinnamon.
