I almost love when I have overripe bananas. It doesn't happen too often. I buy a lot of bananas but they get eaten. Fast. So when they start to get overripe, I jump at the chance to make something with bananas. This time? This awesome banana baked oatmeal.
I would have loved to use walnuts or pecans but all I had was almonds. It was delicious and I especially loved it with a bit of vanilla yogurt. My only thought was that it needed a bit of cinnamon.
