How are you all doing? It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. We had a busy week this week and that meant throwing something small together for supper. I grilled a family sized package of chicken breasts on Sunday and have been working my way through those. Tonight I made chipotle turkey burgers in the NuWave.
Garrett and I are going to Adam Sandler’s movie “That’s My Boy” tonight. I don’t have high hopes for it – but I do like Adam Sandler. We got to have lunch together today. That is very unusual for us, so it was an extra fun lunch hour. We had sushi at Kobe’s here in Bismarck.
I found this recipe on Pinterest.com and followed it back to the blog “So, How’s It Taste?” I made some alterations after reading the comments to make it healthier and with less sugar.
Blueberry & Banana Baked Oatmeal ( found at “So, How’s It Taste?” adapted by The Curvy Carrot)
Servings: makes 6 servings Calories: 150 calories per serving
1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, divided
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
2 packets of Truvia
1 cup milk (I used skim)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2-3 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced
1 cup blueberries or raspberries, fresh or frozen, divided
Preheat the oven to 375F. Lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish. In a medium bowl, mix the oats, half of the walnuts, baking powder, cinnamon, Truvia, and salt. Stir to combine. In a liquid measuring cup, combine the milk, egg, and vanilla.
Spread the sliced bananas in a single layer over the bottom of the baking dish. Top with half of the berries. Sprinkle the dry oat mixture over the fruit in an even layer. Pour the liquid ingredients evenly over the oats.
Sprinkle the remaining nuts and berries over the top. Bake for 20 minutes, until the top is browned and the oats have set. Let cool 10 minutes before serving. If you use old-fashioned oats, bake for 35-40 minutes. Some of the readers in the other blog post suggested using steel cut oats, which I had on hand. However, I wanted to use up the quick oats I had.
I brought mine to work and enjoyed it with a 6 oz. container of Yoplait Honey Greek yogurt. It was very good. The Truvia added just enough sweetener to the blueberries and bananas natural sweet taste. The walnuts were a definite bonus, I may add more next time. And even better, it filled me up!
