Recipe by Mara
"I had this recipe for baked oatmeal while in the Dominican Republic on a mission trip. Everyone loved it and asked for it often. With less sugar it is a healthy breakfast. You can add raisins, cranberries, nuts, cinnamon, chopped apples, flaxseed, wheat germ, etc. You can't mess up this recipe. Kids love it with the cup of sugar, but by adding less sugar and other ingredients you can make it healthy and also delicious by serving it with blueberries, strawberries, or peaches."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

ripe bananas, mashed
2 1/4 teaspoons
A keeper! I've made this twice, and I will undoubtedly make it again! I can't eat bananas, so I substituted canned pineapple (drained). Next time I want to try canned pears or peaches (which I will blend before adding), but you can probably experiment with this. I didn't have flaxseed oil, so I used canola. The second time I made it, I left out the white sugar, just added the brown, thinking that, if I wanted to, I could sprinkle some sugar on it before eating. The addition of the 3/4 cup of white sugar makes it more cake-like, IMO. One thing I would stress is spraying the pan before adding your mixture. I didn't do that the first time, and it stuck to my non-stick pan. I don't get 9 servings out of it, though, I get 6, using an 8 x 8 pan. I also sprinkled some cinnamon on top before baking. When done, I cut it into 6 portions and refrigerated it. I like it in the morning - just nuke it for a minute on 3/4 power. P.S. You can probably top it with some vanilla yogurt. Yum!
We enjoyed this recipe. The first time I made it I cut the recipe in half and used all applesauce as I didn't have any bananas. I also omitted the flaxseed oil and used 1/2 cup of brown sugar and omitted the white sugar. I used cooking oil spray. The second time I used 2 mashed bananas. Both versions were good.
