Cinnamon Banana Healthy Baked Oats Ingredients

The amount of ingredients that you need to make this cinnamon banana healthy baked oats is small. In fact; I’m sure that you have most, if not all the ingredients on hand already.

  • Oat flour: You can buy oat flour, or make your own by just blending raw oats into flour. Pretty neat, huh?
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt: You only need to add a pinch. This is to add flavor so that the baked oats won’t be bland.
  • Ground Flaxseed: This is optional, but I highly recommend you add it; as ground flaxseed is nutritious and high in Omega 3s.
  • Cinnamon: Do I need to beg you to add this in? Surely not!
  • Mashed Ripe Banana: Adds moisture and flavor to the baked oats.
  • Pure Maple Syrup: This is the best kind of syrup. You know, the one in the cute glass bottle? It costs more than regular syrup, but it tastes far more better. Also, you won’t find any artificial ingredients lurking in there.

So, if you tried out this recipe; I hope you enjoyed it. And if you have any feedback or comments, I would love to hear about it. Thank you.
