Single-Serve Baked Banana Bread Oatmeal

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 tablespoon protein powder (I used natural, warrior blend)

  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon stevia
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat your oven to 350. Mix dry, add wet. Pour into a lightly greased round baking dish. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the bake is firm.

About Lisa


  1. Oh these salt and pepper shakers are adorable!! I wouldn’t have found out what it is if you hadn’t wrote it :-) the outfit is supercute too. And I am sorry that you still don’t feel well. Maybe see a doctor? Warm Chilli and Bananas definitely always work when the stomach aches.

    • Aren’t they just the best, I love ‘em!
      I saw someone from a clinic, but their not too helpful. I have an appointment with my regular Doctor in a few weeks, so hopefully it will be gone by then!

  2. “i want to apologize to greg” lol!!!! itz ok im sure they made him another one!

  3. Boy I hope you figure out this stomach stuff soon!

    And as for Heather’s coconut bread, you probably could use chia seeds and some water, or make your own chia powder and add some water. Just like flax!

  4. So many great things in here but I think those salt and pepper shakes are the best! I would have died to have those when I was younger. I wanted to be a princess! Loved the baked oatmeal recipe too! Happy Friday!

  5. That iPhone case is super cute. Now if only I had an iPhone! ;)

    Those salt and pepper shakers seriously made me laugh. How cool are those??

    LOVE the lace shorts look. I am not sure if I could pull it off …you definitely could, though!

  6. I would absolutely use those salt and pepper shakers…they’re so cute!

    And I have steel cut oats but I don’t use them too often. They increase in volume a lot (so I wouldn’t worry to much about them not filling you up) but I’m a breakfast in 10 minutes or less kind of person, so I don’t have the patience for them.

  7. Hahaha that’s hilarious that you took someone else’s drink. Totally something I would do ;) Happy Friday!!! <3

  8. Hi, which of these products do you recommend Lisa:
    And are those prices GOOD you think? Or should I order directy from Sunwarrior?

    I have Lifetime Basics plant protein mix vanilla…tastes good, but the ingredient list is different than I thought :( Can’t send it back now even though I only used 3 tbsps….wanna switch with something, ha?

    I think I need to also order probiotics and L-glutamine ASAP…I just don’t know what site will ship FASTEST. Vitacost has LOW shipping cost but takes FOREVER to ship :(
    I need as cheap as walking into a grocery store…

    • My favorite is the sun warrior warrior blend – the natural flavor. However, I suggest vanilla if you like vanilla flavors! It’s a little weird not having a flavor, but I just like the option of adding my own to smoothies or baked goods. I prefer the warrior blend since it isn’t made with brown rice protein (I don’t like how it blends into smoothies – kind of chalky). The warrior blend is GREAT in baked goods and also really subtle in smoothies as well. I suggest vitacost, I find sun warrior very slow to ship and it’s more expensive.
      I think those prices are very good! That or on iherb are my favorite sites to order cheap goods!
      Again, for the probiotics and L-glutamine I suggest They ship really fast! I live in Canada and I usually get my order with maximum 3 days! It’s amazing (I’m not affiliated to them or anything, I truly love the site). And definitely have cheap and awesome prices for lots of things!

  9. Hi Lisa:)
    Love your blog! To make steel cut oats more filling … Split the serving size and add a serving of oat bran…. Best of both worlds…..
    But like you said the other day…..”it’s ok to eat more than the serving size”… You were referring to a nut butter but in relative terms… The oatmeal dilemma is a healthier “splurge”….at least on a regular basis:) but nut butter makes everything better… No doubt!
    Good luck.

  10. Hi Lisa,

    Great post!! To increase the volume of steel cut oats I suggest taking 1/4 cup and them grinding them to a powder (I use my magic bullet but I’m sure a blender would work too.) then cook it on the stove top the same way you cook oats. I like adding 2T of rolled oats for body along with chia seeds and almond milk (1 cup liquid). It takes 5 minutes to cook because there is more surface area and it makes a big serving.

    Enjoy! Have a beautiful Friday!!

  11. Aaahhh! Those salt and pepper shakers are so cute!! The coconut banana bread looks phenomenal too, something that would definitely catch my eye. I have never made steel cut oats, mostly because I’m lazy and impatient and they just take too long. I am very happy with my oat bran these days, it’s so quick and easy to make in the microwave :)

  12. holy crud no, the girl who collects salt and pepper shakers is now on the search for those bad boys

  13. Love the lace shorts and ankle boots – so freakin cute!!! I’ve definitely grabbed for someone’s drink, but never taken a sip. I have taken someone’s french fry off their tray as an order came up (totally thought they were my fries!) They were not pleased with me – understandable.

  14. My boyfriend is not a Starbucks guy so whenever we go in, he just orders a random drink off the menu. After a few minutes, I picked up my drink and he grabbed whatever drink was next to mine at the counter. Then, a man came to our table and told him he stole his drink haha. We felt so bad because the guy had to wait longer for the his own drink. My boyfriend didn’t even realize he ordered a cold drink and picked up a hot one.

  15. I am definitely making this banana bread! I saw Jessica’s (how sweet it is) recipe for coconut banana bread but wasn’t a fan of the recipe, so I think I’m going to try and mesh these together. Hopefully things turn out okay!

    Steel Cut Oats look deceiving when you make them. They sort of “puff up” and they have a SUPER chewy texture so even though the serving size is so much smaller… It is more filling than oats. You’ll definitely like them!

    • I saw that recipe too, and was considering it, but this one looks much more my taste!
      I think that would turn out wonderfully! Well, hopefully;)
      How can banana bread fail though?
      I can’t wait to try them out now!

  16. Thanks for the shout out girlie! And you should try that Ener-G egg replacer! Heather (from Better with Veggies SWEARS by it for baking!) I really really hope you like it…it’s BY FAR my favorite thing that I’ve ever baked! :D

    I’ve never taken anyone’s coffee before, but I did get all the way out to my car once at the gym with someone else’s KEYS!! I felt like the biggest idiot! Lol I’ve only had steel cut oats a handful of times. I seem to remember them filling me up, but they just take so darn long to cook and I am SO not a patient person when it comes to my breakfast! And I’ve recently become attached to EOS lip balm…just picked up my first one the other day and I love it! Happy Friday gorgeous!! xoxo

    • Thanks for the suggestion! That sounds like a great plan.
      I can’t wait to try it out. I have the afternoon free tomorrow and plan to bake it up! So excited.

      Haha, oh man with someone else’s keys. That’s pretty epic;)
      I’m totally not a patient person either, which is why I’m hesitant to cook those darn steel cuts!

  17. The magic wand pepper and salt shakers? Who wouldn’t want those? They’re adorable!!

    Happy Friday :)!

  18. It took me a second to figure out what the magic wands were. I thought maybe they were to “pretend” to turn their food into something they wanted to eat :-) Ha! I just pinned that lipstick and am hoping to go shopping this weekend so I’ll have to go check it out. I’m not a huge steel cut oat fan but have made a good crockpot pumpkin pie steel cut out recipe that was pretty good!

    • Hahaha, not quite;)
      It’s definitely a cute color! Nothing too drastic though, that’s for sure.
      I’ll have to try out your recipe!

  19. you always make me hungry for simple goodness! i love your creations, especially lately! and yes, i am almost 30 and want that pepper and salt shaker

  20. That Chili looks smazing! I hope you feel better really fast! I’m obsessed with cinnamon and banana combo. Steel cut oats are awesome!

    Love those lace shorts too! Very cute!

  21. Hope you are feeling better soon! I always keep soup in the freezer for when I am not feeling 100%. That baked oatmeal looks wonderful!

  22. bahahaha about the drink!!! Love that! I hope you are feeling 100% here soon. I don’t know what it is about this year and people getting sick. It has been a bad year for that!

  23. cook you steel cut oats in half apple juice half water, add a little cinnamon and a ton of grapes, strawberries etc. and you won’t regret it. It is so good and super filling and chewy!

  24. I LOVE Kate Spade’s iPhone cases – I need to get a new one too :) And I’m obsessed with Mac’s lip gloss, I’m going to have to try out your lipstick recommendation!

  25. OMG OMG OMG! When I was little I remember celebrating someone’s birthday at school. We pushed all our desks together and we all got cupcakes and juice… Well when I was eating, I accidently drank from the girl next to me’s cup… and OMG I was sooo embarrassed back in the day that I cried! AHHH HA HA HA HA!! Life was so hard back then, LMFAO!

  26. I think you should get those S&P shakers regardlesss-they are SO fun!!

    An Americano sounds just about perfect right now. I have that mid-afternoon struggle hitting me right now.

  27. Bethany says:

    I’m confused about your saying the serving size is smaller. 1/4 cup of SCO makes about a cup of wet oatmeal for me. I usually take one cup of uncooked SCO and boil it with 4 or 4.5 cups water (if I add banana and dried cherries or other fruit). After it comes to a boil, give a stir, take off the stove and cover it and leave on stove top overnight. Will be read in the am. You get at least 4 big cups of oatmeal out of it and the calories are for 1/4 cup dry, which is like 150 I think.

    • Hey Bethany!
      Yes, I guess it’s because it’s 1/4 cup of SCO compared to the 1/2 cup of oatmeal I’m used to that I assume it won’t fill me up as much. So I kind of “worry” the 1/4 cup won’t fill me up as much the normal 1/2 cup oatmeal usually would. I know it’s silly since it most likely expands in size. Just a weird food quirk I have I suppose.
      Does that even make sense? haha.
      Sorry for the confusion!
