SunButter Baked Oatmeal: Dairy-free and Egg-free

I'm always looking for new and healthy breakfast and snack ideas for the kiddos. Of course, it needs to be dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free and sesame-free, which isn't always easy. This SunButter Baked Oatmeal recipe is free of all those things, and VERY tasty too.

I didn't know what to name this great dish. It's really a mix between banana bread, oatmeal cake, and baked oatmeal. It's a hearty bread-like texture, but it's filled with healthy protein like SunButter and oatmeal. I toyed with a few names, but decided to keep it simple because it IS simple.

Why do I love this recipe so much?
  • It's food allergy friendly for our family: Dairy-free and egg-free unlike usual baked oatmeal
  • It's full of protein from the SunButter and oats, which it makes it extra hearty and filling
  • It includes no added refined sugar - only sugar from the honey and dates!
Plus, it's a recipe that's great for a Sunday morning brunch, or a quick on-the-go breakfast or snack.

You can serve SunButter Baked oatmeal any style you want: In squares, bars or as a piece of breakfast cake! Some fresh fruit and yogurt on the side would also taste fantastic.
