  • Berries (fresh or frozen)
  • Ripe bananas

In my recipes, you’ll notice that there isn’t a lot of artificial sugar. I like to naturally sweeten dishes. This recipe gets the right amount of sweetness from ripe bananas. The baked oatmeal comes together with the help of ground flaxseeds. You don’t need to use eggs to bind this recipe together.

To get a warm comforting flavor, we’ll add in some vanilla and ground cinnamon.
