Banana Bread Baked Oats

The first time I discovered Baked Oats, I couldn’t believe that something that tasted so much like a cake could actually be a healthy breakfast choice! Since then, I have experimented with all sorts of flavour combinations. This banana bread version works so well - mostly because you really do feel like you are having banana bread if the texture is bang on. Make sure to remember the baking powder since it lets the mixture rise to give that fluffy texture. I like to serve with with a spoon of Natural Greek yoghurt or vanilla yoghurt to give a bit of freshness to the meal.
