The creamy, nutty flavor of almond butter gives this baked oatmeal delicious flavor. Mashed bananas, vanilla extract, and cane sugar give this dish sweetness and flavor; oats are folded into the mixture with milk and then baked to perfection. Baked oatmeal is soft, warm and comforting like a traditional bowl of oatmeal, but offers the convenience of batch cooking and ability to cut into portions.

Sprinkle the 1 teaspoon of sugar evenly on top of the oats.

Allow the bake to cool before cutting into it, so that it holds some of its shape.
