Baked Peanut Butter & Banana Oatmeal

It’s been a week now since summer officially started and every night I go to bed hoping for beach weather tomorrow, in spite of the weatherman and his forecasts.
I’m not sure when summer will get here; it’s been teasing at best and I’m still wearing scarves, albeit light flowy scarves, but still…
It’s no surprise then that I hang up on these warm, hearty and comforting cool-weather breakfasts.

The thing I love about this baked oatmeal is how simple and yet satisfying it is, being so easy to prepare is an added bonus.
I make a variation of this oatmeal at least once a month, especially on those rainy weekend mornings – if we wake up to dark clouds and the rhythmic sounds of rain on my window, I sleep in a little and I call it an oatmeal kind of morning.
Baking it in an oven means less time in the kitchen, prep is so easy I can do it in my sleep, which I usually do.
I use large flakes of rolled oats; and sometimes a combination of rolled rye, barley, wheat and oats from Country Choice.
The peanut butter and banana makes it decadent, like a treat, I’ve tried apples and fig butter and I’ve loved them all. And when it finally feels like summer I want to try chunks of mango and peaches.

I almost always eat this in bed, crossed legged, watching tv or catching up on my blogs and listening to the rain.
And then, somehow rainy Saturdays doesn’t seem so bad – as I try to come up with other sweet possibilities for rainy Saturdays…
