Comfort Food

Well our plans for recipe #13 & 14 this week were kiboshed by a quarantine. We were going to go to the home of my childhood friend’s mom. She was going to teach me to make Schnitzel from the old country as well as another dish that was a childhood favourite of hers.  Stay tuned for what I am sure will be an amazing recipe… I’m pretty excited!!!

We have all been sick and stuck in the house so not a lot of cooking going on. 

This morning I was feeling a bit better and saw some sad bananas that were about to go to the compost and decided this is no time to waste food so we made this baked oatmeal. It was super yummy and easy, used staples we had in the house already.  The recipe called for pecans or walnuts which we did not have so we substituted unsweetened coconut flakes. We liked it so we thought we’d share the recipe.  Sadly we have made baked oatmeal before so this won’t count… even though technically we have not made this exact recipe 😂. Recipe #13 & 14 still to come, 94 recipes still to go. Off to have a nap even though the recipe was easy it zapped me!!  Stay well and be kind to one another. If you have a senior close by please make sure they are taken care of.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 medium ripe bananas, (the     riper the better) sliced into 1/2″ pieces
  • 1 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup honey, or agave
  • 1 cup uncooked quick oats*
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1 cup fat free milk, or any milk you desire
  • 1 egg

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F.  Lightly spray a 8 x 8″ or 9 x 9″ ceramic baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Arrange the banana slices in a single layer on the bottom of the ceramic dish. Sprinkle half of the blueberries over the bananas, 1/4 tsp of the cinnamon, 1 tbsp of the honey and cover with foil.
  3. Bake 15 minutes, until the bananas get soft.
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the oats, half of nuts, baking powder, remaining cinnamon, and salt; stir together.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining honey, milk, egg, and vanilla extract.
  6. Remove the bananas from the oven, then pour the oat mixture over the bananas and blueberries.
  7. Pour the milk mixture over the oats, making sure to distribute the mixture as evenly as possible over the oats.  Sprinkle the remaining blueberries and walnuts over the the top.
  8. Bake the oatmeal for about 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the oatmeal has set. Serve warm from the oven.
