Let's Mix Two Breakfasts To Make One

I absolutely love Banana Bread, and no one makes it as good as my Momma. Recently when I was home visiting her, she made up a big batch of her famous Banana Bread just for me for my siblings and I who were all visiting. And of course it was as delicious as ever!

I think I was day dreaming of that Banana Bread when I came up with this Banana Nut Bread Baked Oatmeal not too long ago. This defiantly is not the same as Mom’s traditional Banana Bread but all of the same flavor profiles are there, all in yummy baked oatmeal form.

If you have never tired Baked Oatmeal before I encourage you to. It is basically a giant oatmeal cookie! I wanted to keep this version healthy and I choose to top my finished oatmeal with some low-fat yogurt, honey and some extra chopped walnuts. This was seriously good!
