Baked Gluten-Free Banana Oats
 
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • 1 cup rolled oats (I used gluten-free oats)
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 very ripe banana, mashed
  • ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • handful of raisins, dried cranberries, dried blueberries, pepitas, sunflower seeds, shredded coconut
  • ¼ cup blueberries, fresh or frozen (optional, but I usually throw these in if I have frozen blueberries in the freezer)
  • 1 tbs mini vegan chocolate chips / carob chips (optional, but kinda nice! ;))
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Get out a bowl and add in the banana and mash. Then add in the rest of the ingredients and mix well. I baked my oat mixture in a silicone muffin tray, but you could also use a few ramekins or a small loaf pan, but the cooking time may differ slightly. I let the mixture sit for a few minutes while the oven finishes heating up.
  3. Scoop mixture into muffin tray and pat down slightly. I used around 2 heaping tablespoons for eat oatmeal serving. Bake for around 35 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before transferring to a cooling rack. When they have fully cooled, then transfer them for an airtight container and store in the fridge (or freezer). I like to eat these with a small bit of Soy-Free Earth Balance spread, vegan cream cheese, natural peanut butter, jam...and with some sliced fresh fruit of some kinds.
