Banana bread baked oats! A very common question I get is "what is a healthy breakfast alternative that doesn't take up too much time & is inexpensive?" This is the recipe I give them, every. single. time. I have been making this for years & now my entire family makes it as well. The best thing about this recipe is that it is SO VERSATILE. You can add berries, nuts, caramel, pumpkin, etc. I've made a lot of different versions of this baked oats recipe but the classic banana chocolate chip is still my favorite!

Nutrition: oats are one of my favorite foods to start the morning with because they are high in fiber and are a slow digesting carbohydrate. Oats are a whole grain food (aim for at least 50% of your daily grains to be whole grain). Oats are insanely nutrient dense as they are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They are also incredibly versatile!
