A twist on oatmeal

I love oatmeal.  In the winter I will often make a big pot of it on Monday morning and eat it all week long.  I do get a bit bored of it after awhile and one way to mix things up is to make baked oatmeal.  Even the oatmeal hater in our family (hint: also the tofu hater) likes it this way:

Recipe: (adapted from Heidi Swanson and Thy Hand Hath Provided):

2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup honey
1 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 cup milk
4 eggs
2 T butter, melted
1 banana, sliced thin
1 1/2 t cinnamon
Pineapple rounds, core removed 

Preheat oven to 375.   Grease a baking dish.  Mix all the ingredients except the pineapple and cinnamon together and spread into the baking dish.  Layer the pineapple on top of the oat mixture and sprinkle with cinnamon.  Bake uncovered for 35-40 minutes.  

Feel free to sub out any fruit/nuts you have on hand.  This keeps well in the fridge, just reheat in the microwave and add some milk for a substantial, yet healthy, start to your day.
