This Saturday I was in the mood for making a nice new breakfast recipe, and found an amazing recipe for Broiled Brown Sugar Bananas in the Good Housekeeping 400 Calorie Meals cookbook. I decided to try it, but rather than just making them on their own, I chose to pair it with some homemade pancakes. The result was an amazingly tasty, warm, and comforting breakfast that I’ll gladly make again. So if you’re in the mood for a new twist on boring old pancakes, give this a try — it’s super easy, and is sure to please your taste buds.

Slow Cooker Banana Bread Oatmeal

Slow Cooker Banana Bread Oatmeal

Time: 6-8 hours

Difficulty: Easy

For this morning’s breakfast, as my wife and I were hosting both of our parents, I decided to make an easy-to-prepare slow cooker meal. After a bit of searching, I found a recipe for Overnight Crockpot Banana Bread Oatmeal on the i heart eating website, and knew I had to make it. Why? Well, oatmeal is hands-down one of my favorite breakfasts. Also, banana bread is one of my mother’s most famous recipes that is my personal favorite comfort food that she makes. So pairing the banana bread flavor with oatmeal seemed like a perfect fit for a comfort food breakfast on a chilly college football Saturday.

In addition to pairing two of my favorite foods in one breakfast dish, this recipe also served another momentous purpose: It’s my 50th recipe for my 50 in 15 Challenge, officially wrapping up a successfully-completed challenge. The end result was indeed a comforting, delicious, and healthful bowl of pure goodness. It paired perfectly with a nice warm cup of coffee, a side of fresh fruit, and a few slices of my mom’s homemade banana bread (which she graciously brought down as a treat for us). If you’re in the mood for an easy set-it-and-forget-it breakfast, give this recipe a shot. You’ll be glad you did!

I recently found this recipe for Banana Blueberry Bars from Forks Over Knives, and knew I had to try it. They are moist and fluffy — similar to a banana bread or muffin — and providing a healthy, filling, and delicious treat to provide lasting energy. As an added bonus, they are both vegetarian- and vegan-friendly, so they can be enjoyed by everyone. And as a new recipe that I was trying, I get to add it to the list of recipes in my 50 in 15 Challenge.

Be forewarned: These bars are surprisingly addicting!
