Whip up Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal for a healthy breakfast. It is heart healthy and easy.

Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal #fooddonelight #bakedoatmeal #healthybreakfast

Yes, another baked oatmeal recipe!  I know I just did one but this one, Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal, is a little different.  The Cranberry Vanilla Baked Oatmeal is a little more tart because of the cranberries.  Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal is sweeter.  I could eat it for dessert!  Don’t worry it is not too sweet though.

The reason I picked this one for Valentine’s Day is because it is truly made with LOVE!  I’m going to get a little mushy now.  As you all know, my husband had a heart attack last year.  We have been through so many ups and downs since then.  We changed cardiologists which has proven to be the best decision we have made.  He figured out that what we thought was a little mitro valve problem with my husband’s heart is actually a large problem.  He referred us to a surgeon who specializes in this type of repair.  We are very lucky that Atlanta has a first-rate hospital, St. Josephs, and doctors that specialize in robotic repair.  My husband will have his repair done in the beginning of March.  I’ll talk more about that in a few weeks as it will impact Food Done Light.  I do have a plan thanks to some good “Food Blogging” friends.

My husbands favorite breakfast! Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal www.fooddonelight.com

Anyway, one of the things I can do to help my husband is make sure he has heart healthy food to eat.  I have been on a mission to make breakfast healthy and quick.  He usually grabs something as he is walking out the door.  Baked Oatmeal has really turned out to be a fantastic option.  To keep boredom at bay, I have been making different flavors.  This was my favorite of the new flavors!  It really makes me feel good to be able to help him in this small way.  I feel like Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal is a little love note to him each morning and reminds him how much he has to live for.  I am so proud of the way he has changed his eating habits and increased his exercise.  He is a true inspiration!

    This sounds so yummy. I have never tried any baked oatmeal. I need to do this.

    So are you in the Atlanta area? When you mentioned St. Josephs I didn’t know if you were or would have to travel. I live about an hour from that area.

    PRAY all goes well with your husbands procedure.

    If I wanted to make this gluten free I think the only thing that I would need to substitute is the wheat bran, any ideas?

    • Christie Daruwalla says

      Hi Katherine, What about oat bran? Bob’s Red Mill as a GF Oat Bran or just increase the oats a little. I added it because it increases the fiber and nutrients.

  8. Chriss says

    Do you eat this warm, just out of the oven, or can you cut into bars and eat it cold for breakfast on the run?

    • Christie Daruwalla says

      Hi Chriss, All of the above. My husband eats it cold right out of the frig. I like it right out of the oven or slightly warm. It works either way.
