Whip up a batch of this, slice them into nine equal  pieces, and bring them with you when you’re on the go. I like topping my banana bread baked oats with nut butter and some extra slices of bananas.

    What Ingredients are Needed for Banana Bread Baked Oats?

    Rolled Oats: Certified gluten-free old fashioned rolled oats work best for this recipe. Make sure you grab the ones that are certified gluten-free. Even though oats are naturally gluten-free, they are often cross-contaminated in production facilities

    Baking Powder: To make sure we achieve optimal fluffiness.

    Cinnamon: To add some extra flavor.

    Salt

    Bananas: Two large or three medium sized bananas mashed up nice and fine.

    Eggs

    Almond Milk: Plain, unsweetened almond milk. You could try using vanilla if you wanted vanilla flavors to come through.

    Honey: For some natural sweetness. Can substitute for agave syrup or maple syrup.

    Vanilla Extract: To enhance the flavors.

    Walnuts: The best mix-in nut. Not too overpowering in flavor, adds a bit of crunchy texture, and enhances the nutrient profile of the recipe.
