Baked Banana Oatmeal – A delicious breakfast!

I don’t know about you, but my breakfast was delicious!! I found this recipe over the weekend and just had to make it. I’m always looking for quick, run out the door breakfasts that I can eat once I get to work. In my perfect world, I wish I could wake up at 5:30 no problem or at least stop pushing the snooze in the morning so that I could enjoy my mornings a little better. This Baked Banana Oatmeal recipe comes from Tone It Up. If you try it, you’ll have to let me know what you think of it! I doubled the recipe so that I could share it with my momma. 3245a_f6ce
