Easy breakfasts are everything. Especially when you have 3 hams over here eating breakfast every single day.

I whip up meals for Jordan, Ezra and myself so making things that are simple and easy are the only way to do it. I love making recipes that make a few servings. That way we are set for a couple of days with a meal! But even if you are baking for one, this recipe is perfect. You can have breakfast for a full work week. Or even freeze half of it.

Baked oatmeals are one of my personal favorites and I love how hearty and taste they are. They basically make me feel like I am eating cake for breakfast. And I love topping it off with some coconut yogurt, granola, nut butter, anything! Think of them like an oatmeal casserole of sorts.

This Maple Banana Baked Oatmeal is gluten-free and dairy-free and low in sugar.

This is one of those recipes that will go on your rotation once you start making it. Plus it doesn’t require a dozen different ingredients. We use a few gluten-free staples on hand for both the oatmeal bake and the maple honey cream glaze on top.

Now don’t get intimidated by the glaze. It is so not fancy and it is super easy to whip up. It adds a cinnamon bun-like consistency to this recipe and it has just the right amount of sweetness from the maple syrup and Wedderspoon’s Manuka Honey. And if you aren’t feeling a glaze, smear a thick layer or almond butter on top like I do most of the time, and you will be golden.

What you need to make this gluten-free oatmeal bake..

  • Mashed banana. One of my favorite ways to naturally sweeten a recipe. Plus it gives it that banana bread-like flavor.
  • Pasture-raised egg. You can absolutely sub flax egg in this too!
  • Creamy nut butter. I personally like using almond butter here but anything works.
  • Maple syrup. For that little sweetness for the oatmeal bake.
  • Beechwood honey. A personal favorite honey to bake with. Wedderspoon makes the best one!
  • Manuka honey. I use this in the glaze. Wedderspoon is another personal fave for this.
  • Unsweetened non-dairy milk. Always look for little to no gums, no natural flavors and added sugars. Such a waste to add into milks!
  • Rolled oats. I have used both quick rolled oats and rolled oats. Both work!
  • Cashews. The main ingredient for the dreamy glaze on top.

A few of my other favorite baked oatmeals: Mini Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Oatmeal Bake (vegan + gluten-free)Turmeric “Golden Milk” Oatmeal Bake (vegan) and Dark Chocolate Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal (gluten-free). But for evermore healthy breakfast recipes, head on over to this blog post.
