When I was a kid, there was this banana foster ice cream that was not safe around me. Seriously, no gallon left behind kind of situation. It was delicious! Creamy, rich, packed full of flavors including salty caramel, banana, and rum…
I made that into oats. YOU’RE WELCOME!
I would be doing an injustice if I didn’t tell you that about half of these oats ended up being dredged in coconut whip to up the creamy factor even more. Not mandatory but pretty dang delicious…
I had made Minimalist Baker’s Coconut Whipped Cream recipe earlier in the week and *needed* to use it up. Sue me. If you have some spare time (make some), whipped up her recipe as well to get your delicious on!
The plus side to these oats? They are perfect for meal prep! I baked two of them on the same day because hi, recipe testing isn’t always super glamorous, so I had plenty of leftovers. I simply popped them in an airtight container and they kept the entire week!
To keep get this recipe to have a rich caramel flavor, I used D’vash Organics Date Nectar which has a slight caramel flavor already BUT when you heat it up, it’s straight caramel sauce. I swear, don’t just trust me. Do it yourself and thank me later.

Banana Foster Baked Oats
- 2 cup GF Oats
