Strawberry Banana Breakfast Bake

I love all kinds of Big Batch breakfast casseroles and bakes. You know why? It means we have amazingly tasty and healthy recipes within reach whenever we need them for busy mornings. Of course, having such a delicious meal ready for weekend nibbles is fun too. This way you can have lazy mornings at play and not too much time spent in the kitchen…

I wanted to test drive my favorite Uncle Sam Original breakfast cereal as a hot cereal. Usually we love this crunchy blend of whole grains and flax seeds with cold milk, nuts, fresh fruit and raisins. As a bowl of cold cereal, it has a great crispy crunch and a well defined, nutty taste.

When baked into my breakfast casserole it takes on a whole new profile. I mixed it with old fashioned rolled oats to create a mixed grain breakfast bake. Uncle Sam cereal softens up and pairs very well with the oats when baked. This is a fun twist on the usual bowl of oats.

Unsweetened coconut milk is a great addition too and we enjoy that in different ways everyday of the week here. Drizzle a little more on top before serving. Some heavy cream or a dollop of greek yogurt would be nice too.

With mashed bananas and strawberries this becomes the ultimate satisfying breakfast. You can serve this recipe for brunch too, as you will have enough to indulge many guests with your savvy breakfast skills. Enjoy for snacks as well.

The protein from the eggs will keep you going throughout the day.

I am a huge fan of breakfast, it really is my favorite meal of the day. As many of you know, I dash out of bed for this meal at 4am (OK sometimes earlier ~ I know that is nuts)

Speaking of nuts, don’t forget to add them to your breakfast casserole. They add healthy fats and even more energy sustenance.

Do you have a favorite breakfast casserole? Have you ever tried a traditionally “cold” cereal in a “hot” way?
