Baked Oatmeal with Blueberries (DF, GF)

I think this is DELICIOUS !!!!  I LOVE the combination of blueberries and bananas !!!  The walnuts give it a nice crunch !!!  
This is a very filling breakfast !!!  It will keep you from being hungry for hours !!!!

The batter will be a little on the "soupy" side, but it will firm up when baking.  It came out the perfect consistency - I did not need to add any additional milk when eating it the next day - it was moist but not "runny".

Adapted from this recipe.

10 large dates
1 cup unsweetened applesauce 
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 Tbsp Ground Flaxseed 
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups unsweetened almond milk 
1 pint of fresh blueberries
1 large banana, sliced

Blend the dates and applesauce in a blender or food processor until smooth.

Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl.    

Mix the wet ingredients (INCLUDING blended dates) in another bowl. 

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until the dry ingredients are moistened.  Mix in blueberries and banana and stir until combined.

Pour into casserole dish bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until top is golden brown.

My favorite food processor is the  KitchenAid  7-Cup Food Processor

For blenders, I use both the  Vitamix Blender and Ninja Master Prep Professional Blender

  1. What if I’m allergic to banana? Do you have and substitution recommendations that would work with this recipe

    1. Hi Lilliana,

      THANKS for your question. Since the bananas are just in addition to the blueberries - you could actually leave them out. OR you could try adding some other types of berries in addition to the blueberries - like raspberries or strawberries. - Denise
