Banana-Oatmeal Bake

2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill 10 Grain Hot Cereal
(or Bob’s Red Mill 7 Grain Hot Cereal, another 1/4 cup oats, flax meal, wheat germ or bran)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup agave nectar
(or brown sugar, sugar or honey)*
1-1/2 cups fat free milk
(or any milk)
2 small bananas, mashed
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Combine oats, 10 Grain cereal, baking powder and salt.  Set aside.

In another bowl, combine agave nectar, milk, egg, vanilla extract and bananas.  Combine the wet with the dry ingredients.

Lightly spray an 8 x 8 inch pan with cooking spray and pour in banana-oats mixture.  Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes.  Add walnuts to the top and bake for another 5 minutes to toast them.

Serve warm.

This is from a fantastic blog: www.noblepig.com which I check often for amazing recipes and pictures!

Here is a picture of how her bake came out:

Mine looked nothing like that but it was still delicious!

One recommendation – toss the walnuts into the mix instead of sprinkling on top. They fell right off my bake when you picked up a piece.

Enjoy!
