pumpkin recipes like I did last year, of course. So now here we are the week of Thanksgiving and I am finally getting my hands dirty. We are going to be spending Thanksgiving at my husby's grandparent's house and then again this weekend at my brother and sister-in-laws so since we aren't hosting I decided to make a few side dishes and a special breakfast bake to get us in the spirit of the holiday.Did I want to make amazing
I have been looking for oatmeal breakfast recipes that you can make ahead of time and is easy to put together. This recipe embrases both concepts and falls perfectly in line with my warm and cozy fall mood.
Baked Oatmeal with Pumpkin and Bananas
Servings: 6 (Serving Size: 1/6th)
4 medium ripe bananas, (the riper the better) sliced into 1/2" pieces
1 (15 oz) can organic pumpkin
1 tbsp honey
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 cup uncooked quick oats
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp nutmeg
pinch of salt
1 cup original Almond milk (or any milk you desire)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 375°. Lightly spray a 9 x 9" ceramic baking dish with cooking spray or coconut oil (my favorite); set aside.
Arrange the banana slices in a single layer on the bottom of the ceramic dish. Sprinkle 1/4 tsp of the cinnamon, honey and cover with foil. Bake 15 minutes, until the bananas get soft.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the oats, half of nuts, baking powder, remaining cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg and salt; stir together. In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, brown sugar, milk, egg, and vanilla extract.
Remove the bananas from the oven, then pour the oat mixture over the bananas. Next, pour the pumpkin mixture over the oats, making sure to distribute the mixture as evenly as possible. Sprinkle the remaining nuts over the the top.
Bake the oatmeal for about 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the oatmeal has set. Serve warm from the oven.
