This Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal is the perfect breakfast to make ahead for easy grab and go in the morning. Another bonus, they are so simple to put together.
I personally am not a huge fan of oatmeal unless it’s baked so these hit the spot for me. They are filling and healthy. If you’re not a huge fan of nuts go ahead and skip them or add something else in their place, coconut would be great!
Tips for making Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal
When it comes to my banana recipes, I always have a huge stockpile of bananas. Once they are past the point where anyone in my house will eat them I stick them into the freezer in their peels and let them stay there until I need them for a recipe. When I’m ready to use them I either let them defrost on the counter or stick them in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time until they are defrosted.

The chocolate chips that I have been buying lately are by Enjoy Life and they are delicious! Also, the semi-sweet chocolate chips only contain 3 ingredients! I found them in our local grocery store so I think they are easy to find.
I hope you enjoy this baked oatmeal as much as I did!
