Baked Banana, Coconut, & Pecan Oatmeal

Posted by on Feb 20, 2013 in Breakfast, Cooking

I love dessert and would probably have it after every meal if I could.  I honestly think about new dessert recipes all of the time.  One day I was thinking about coconut cream pie and I saw a recipe for baked banana oatmeal.  Immediately I knew I had to combine the flavors and I ended up with this oatmeal!  I added protein powder to mine, but the recipe will turn out perfectly fine if you choose not to.  You can also use butter in place of the coconut oil, but then I would add more coconut to make up for the flavor.  I really enjoyed this baked oatmeal and hope you do too!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a 9X13 baking dish.  Combine all ingredients except pecans in a large bowl and stir until combined.  Pour into your prepared baking dish and sprinkle pecans and a little extra coconut on top. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until set and edges are lightly browned.  Let sit about 5-10 minutes before serving and store leftovers covered in the fridge.  Best served with milk and sliced bananas!
