My modified version with slight changes made to the ingredients and reduced in quantity.
Baked Oatmeal with Pumpkin and Bananas
Enough for 3 - 4 persons
2 medium ripe bananas, (the riper the better) sliced into 1/2" pieces
100g canned pumpkin
1 tbsp honey
1.5 tablespoons brown sugar
55g uncooked quick oats
25g chopped walnuts
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp all ground spice
pinch of salt
120ml skimmed milk (or any milk you desire)
1 small egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 375° F (190°C). Lightly spray a 8 x 8" or 9 x 9" ceramic baking dish with cooking spray, set aside. (I used a 750ml Pyrex dish)
Arrange the banana slices in a single layer on the bottom of the ceramic dish. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp of the cinnamon, honey and cover with foil. Bake 15 minutes, until the bananas get soft.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the oats, half of nuts, baking powder, remaining cinnamon, all ground spice and salt; stir together.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, brown sugar, milk, egg, and vanilla extract.
Remove the bananas from the oven, then pour the oat mixture over the bananas.
Pour the pumpkin mixture over the oats, making sure to distribute the mixture as evenly as possible. Sprinkle the remaining nuts over the the top.
Bake the oatmeal for about 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the oatmeal has set. Serve warm from the oven.
The nice aroma of bananas, cinnamon, pumpkin fragrance ... freshly baked from the oven. Glad that my girl liked it ... and she had 2 big servings. Well, it definitely tasted good on a cool raining morning.
Have a nice weekend ^-^!
