Baked Banana Almond Oatmeal

I seriously cannot get enough of my oatmeal.  It’s a great source of fuel for me on long run days, it hits the spot on cold winter days, and my girls love it straight from the stovetop on the weekends.  I typically make a big batch on Sunday night and portion them off to use throughout the week.  They refrigerate fine and I pop them in the conventional oven (we don’t own a microwave… I know I know… that’s a different story) with my favorite toppings and it’s ready to go in less than 10 minutes!  Very convenient and very healthy!

  1. I just purchased your plan this am on the phone. I can’t wait to start it and even though I should receive from Jan 6-9th, I have a couple of quick questions.

    1) Recipe above regarding honey: what does that count under? I’ve been reading so many beneficial things of daily consuming both honey and cinnamon. Please advise on total amount of pure honey per day allowed.

    2) In the package I’ll be receiving in a few days, will there be a list of freebies (you already said cinnamon and spices are freebies). What about:
    a. Powders you add to water for flavor?
    b. Bragg’s Organic Raw Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar?

    I eagerly await your answers!

    • Hey Lisa-

      Powders aren’t listed as freebies but vinegars, lime and lemon juice are. Honey isn’t counted but it is recommended to limit to only 1-2 tsp a day 🙂

      You’ll love the program. Send me an email if you need extra support and accountability. Happy to help. Leslie@fitssimple.com

  2. I’m confused how the almonds are a blue container. It says 12 whole almonds is a blue container but chopped almonds is an orange container. Sorryy I’m still learning!

  3. Did you cook the oats in water or milk? I normally cook oats in water then mix with a scoop of protein powder can I continue with this?

  4. Can you use regular oatmeal or does it need to be steel cut? This looks so yummy! I have been needing something new for the fix!
