This month’s Recipe Redux theme is to share our first cooking memories. Well, surprise, I was one of those people who didn’t get into cooking until my older (I like to say, mature) years. But, I do have some fond memories with my mom in the kitchen. She was in charge of feeding four (very active) children. We did eat a lot of boxed lasagna’s, bagel bites, and pasta for convenience sake, but I played a part in helping with some delicious breakfasts foods on lazy Saturday mornings. During the week, it was Eggo’s (PS – did you hear about the recall?) and Bobby’s World every day before school, but on the weekend, we got more creative.

Whether it be cinnamon buns, egg souffles or pancakes, breakfast has always been my favorite meal. That still holds true. Fortunately, our house was always stocked with the breakfast essentials. I remember adding the spices, and mixing the eggs for our breakfast creations. I felt like my role was so large that the breakfast wouldn’t be the same without me. I’m not sure how accurate that was. But, it was fun “helping” in the kitchen, and seeing the finished product, knowing you had some part in it.

There’s a lot of research in the nutrition world about involving children in cooking at a young age. Letting them play a role in the process. In turn, they learn how to prepare foods and taste things they may not have otherwise tasted. They are also more likely to eat something that they helped create! Makes total sense.

So, this recipe is in honor of my younger years and fond memories. Standing alongside my mom, adding spices and mixing batters. And then revelling in the final product and that glorious smell of our work in the kitchen. Because that’s probably how I came to love breakfast so darn much.

I’ve tried my hand at a few breakfast bakes before and I find that I love the convenience of them once they are made. Just cut a slice for breakfast on the go, or even for a mid day snack at the office. This banana peach baked oatmeal is extremely portable and perfect for a nice slather of cinnamon salted peanut butter  or coconut butter.

I love this breakfast bake for it’s thick, creaminess, which my stomach appreciates for the lasting satiety. And, since there’s flax in there, that means extra fiber and healthy fats! I am a true believer in this flax/chia blend (affiliate link). You can seriously add it to everything and make life easier. I can’t stop drooling over how creamy the pieces are! Excuse me while I go take another bite.

When pouring the mixed batter into the baking pan, I chose to save some peaches and bananas to sprinkle on the top. I like how they sort of melt into the oatmeal during the bake, but you may prefer they be in the middle! Follow your heart. There’s no wrong way!

  1. I remember making pancakes with my mom when I was younger. It was out of a box but it was still a big deal to help with breakfast! And of course we also baked cookies at Christmas- those were from scratch:) Slowly I got more involved in cooking until I figured out how to do things on my own.

  2. This is a lovely memory. There’s something so special about spending time in the kitchen with family. I sure hope children are still getting to experience helping their parents/grandparents bake and cook. My favorite baking memory is when my cousin and i would create our own muffins and then make our family eat them. There were some interesting concoctions let me tell you, but my parents never complained.

  3. I love breakfast bakes too! I especially love baked oatmeal, because the eggs and milk in it usually helps keep me satiated for a couple hours. We had baked oatmeal so much when I was little; I want to make it more for my familY!

  4. I love the combo of peach and banana! I haven’t made a full size oatmeal bake in ages. I need to do so and then I’ll have breakfast for a week!

  5. Yummy! I didn’t discover baked oatmeal until I was in med school (…), but I love it–especially in the winter! No better way to warm up! 😀 This looks delicious!
