One of the food-related things that I love about the holidays are the awesome breakfasts and brunches. There have been times where I’ve gone all out for the brunch and laid low for the dinner, but this year I think I’m going to do the opposite. Now, this doesn’t mean that you, or I for that matter, need to have a boring first meal of the day. That’s where this filling dish comes in!

Getting its name from a very popular ice cream flavor, this chunky monkey baked oatmeal boasts sweet bananas, chopped walnuts and sweet chocolate with a vanilla oatmeal base. As neat as it would be to eat ice cream for breakfast I feel that this version is going to get you a whole lot further and you won’t have a crazy comedown from your sugar high.

Besides that great flavors that this dish brings to the table, another good quality is that you prep it and leave it alone. No tending to it, making sure that nothing is burning or worrying about it thickening up enough. Just pulse most of the ingredients in a blender, pour it in and bake! Easy-peasy, right? Then you can get crazy with the toppings and serve it right up with a warm cup of coffee, or tea if that’s your thing.
