Happy Monday!!! No, I don’t always have this much psyche on Monday but I force myself to because lord knows if I don’t I may not get out of bed!
I do have a recipe for this Baked banana oatmeal down here, It is just an awesome breakfast to have, especially if you have a busy week planned ahead. This will make 4 servings and will save you time in the morning, You can even pack it when you don’t have time and eat it in class/office. It has all the components of health you need, if you are vegan substitute the butter with vegetable oil and honey with maple syrup. Its actually sweet enough from the banana and I love the crunch the almonds give it. Sometimes I will use chopped walnuts to switch things up. So experiment and have fun with it.
I bid you good day and a great week ahead!

- 1/2 cup almonds (you can use raisins, walnuts,pistachios)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder

- Chop one banana and add to the blender, add the vanilla extract, milk and butter. Blend until smooth. Mix this into the oatmeal ingredients. Using a fork mix well.
- Grease your baking dish or you can use small ramekins for individual servings. Pour the oatmeal in, Chop up the other two bananas and lay inside the baking dish. You can layer them at the bottom, top or just push them into the oatmeal.
- Bake for 35 minutes, until the top is brownish. Set aside to cool and make the pineapples
- For pineapples; add half tablespoon butter into your pan, let it melt and add chopped/sliced pineapples. Pour a tablespoon of honey and ½ teaspoon cinnamon powder over the pineapples and cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir often to prevent sticking to pan. Once browned it is ready. Serve over oatmeal. Optional you can drizzle extra honey on top or add some yogurt for a nice breakfast.
