Banana bread, a childhood favorite that I just cannot get enough of! I go weak in the knees over a good banana bread, especially when peanut butter and possibly chocolate are involved! I don't know what I love more; the sweet smell that engulfs your home when you bake banana bread, or the memories of spending an afternoon in the kitchen with my mom making delicious banana bread. Both are sweet and make baking banana bread extra special.
I have taken everything that I love about banana bread and baked it into this delicious baked oatmeal recipe. Slightly sweet, a touch of spice and a hint of peanut butter make this banana bread baked oatmeal irresistible! Make this baked oatmeal Sunday night and eat for breakfast all week or enjoy as a sweet afternoon snack! If your a banana bread lover like me you need to try this recipe... really you need too!
