Baked " Banana Bread" Oatmeal

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by swissms

For years I never ate oatmeal due to the "mushy" texture. After seeing a baked oatmeal prepared on FoodNetwork, it inspired me to come up with a few baked oatmeal recipes inspired by some popular baked goods. This oatmeal has a much more firm texture. Check out my recipes for Baked " Apple Oatmeal Raisin Cookie" Oatmeal and Baked " Cranberry Nut Bread" Oatmeal.

Based on the recipe as stated without using the optional ingredients, I found the oatmeal to be too mushy and more like traditional oatmeal than baked oatmeal (at least compared to the baked oatmeal recipe that I normally use). The flavor was good, though, so I made this a second time but reduced the milk by half and increased the oatmeal to 1 1/2 cups. It was no longer mushy, and I liked it a lot more. I will definitely make this again with the changes. This was a great way to use up frozen bananas and also tasted great with chocolate chips.
