- 1/2 medium-sized ripe banana mashed (50 g or 1/4 cup)
- 1/4 cup 60 ml unsweetened almond milk*
- 1 Tbsp 16 g nut butter** (optional, but recommended)
- 1 tsp 5 ml maple syrup (or other liquid sweetener)
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 slice of hearty bread cubed***
- 1/4 cup 20 g quick oats
Preheat oven to 375F (190C) and lightly grease an individually-sized oven-safe dish. Set aside.
Combine banana, almond milk, nut butter, maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla extract in a large shallow bowl, mixing until fully combined. Pour bread cubes into the mixture and use a fork to lightly press down so that they absorb most of the liquid. Add oats and gently stir until everything is evenly incorporated. If the mix seems too dry, add a splash of extra milk.
Transfer mixture to your prepared dish, adding a few slices of banana on top if desired. Bake for 20 minutes, until the bake has set and the top has turned golden brown.
Remove from oven and top with toppings of choice or simply enjoy as is!
Depending on how thick and/or hearty your bread is, you may have to add a splash of extra milk.
** I used almond, but feel free to use whichever nut butter you prefer. Or, you can also leave it out completely.
*** I tried this with a few different types of bread, and each worked fine. Heartier breads produce a slightly drier bake, as do breads that are slightly older. If you need this to be gluten free, use gluten free bread and certified GF oats.
