I just posted my recipe for baked French toast oatmeal. If you missed it, you can check it out now. You should. Most definitely. Then make a big batch of this for everyone else in your family by multiplying everything by 4 and baking it in an 8×8 pan like the photos below show. It’s just as delicious that way! And it’s perfect for potlucks or breakfast and/brunch for the family.
This dish is a major crowd pleaser! Everywhere I’ve taken it, people have loved it. Even when they’re not vegan! It’s so good, and I hope you love it!

- 4 ripe banana, divided (3 mashed, 1 sliced)
- 3/4 cup water/unsweetened plant milk
- 3 tbsp nut/seed butter (I used powdered PB)
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- (optional) 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 1/4 cup ground flax/chia (I use a combo of both)
- 4 slice of bread of choice** (cut into chunks)
- 1 cup oats
- (optional) 1/4 cup crushed walnuts
- (optional) 1-2 tbsp tbsp maple syrup for topping
Preheat oven at 350 degrees F (176 C) and ready your 8x8 pan either with parchment paper or nonstick spray.
In a medium bowl, mix mashed banana, water/milk, nut/seed butter, date paste/maple syrup, cinnamon, turmeric, and flax well.
Add chunks of bread and mix them so they soak the mixture up. Then add oats and mix to combine.
Pour mixture into your ramekin and place sliced bananas and crushed walnuts on top. Then bake for 30-35 minutes.
Once it's removed from the oven, drizzle (optional) maple syrup over the top. Then enjoy!
*This recipe can be gluten-free if your bread is gluten-free.
**A thicker bread is preferred, but I've made it with the end piece of sandwich bread and it was still superb. I've even done it with a hamburger bun for a thicker bread.
