Banana Baked Oatmeal

For a healthy but satisfying and hearty breakfast, try baked oatmeal. With banana and cinnamon, it taste like banana bread. Serve with a dollop of peanut butter on top, for added protein and deliciousness.

This recipe is adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie, who has a ton of creative oatmeal recipes on her site (Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Oatmeal?! Cookie Dough Oatmeal?! Amazing!)

3. Stir in the mashed banana, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt and milk. Mix well.
