Banana Flaxseed Oatmeal Bake

By Robin Plotkin, RD LD and Kylie Held,

 

Imagine oatmeal baked in individual ramekins to create a breakfast that is crisp on the outside but has a slightly doughy center. The addition of cinnamon and raisin make this breakfast reminiscent of a warm, freshly baked cinnamon raisin oatmeal cookie.
