This banana oatmeal bake was a lifesaver for me during this first trimester of pregnancy! An added bonus is that my kids and husband thoroughly enjoyed it too! This was very easy to make and it's also easily customizable for your fam. If you aren't big prune eaters, you can omit those and if you want to make this more of a treat, you could add chocolate chips. I'll definitely be making this time and again. Enjoy!
2 1/4 c. old-fashioned oats
2 tbsp. flax seeds
