Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bake

Peanut butta, chocolate, oatmeal, and bananas- breakfast doesn’t get much better than this my friends.

This is such an easy and healthy way to satisfy a craving for a “carby”, sweet breakfast and without scarfing down a plate of pancakes or waffles. I accidentally bough dark-chocolate covered cacao nibs at Trader Joes instead of regular cacao nibs, but after trying them, I am not even a little sad about it! So good, and the perfect addition to this breakfast bake:

INGREDIENTS:

1 ripe medium banana, cut in half
1/4 cup almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp old fashioned oats
2 Tbsp Kodiak Cakes Protein Pancake Mix (or regular flour)
1/4 tsp baking powder
Dash of salt
1 Tbsp cacao nibs (or chocolate chips)
1/2 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp peanut butter

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Put half the banana in a small bowl and mash it until fairly smooth. Add almond milk and vanilla, stir, and set aside.
  3. Combine oats, kodiak cakes mix, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl and stir to mix. Add banana and almond milk mixture to the bowl and mix thoroughly. Stir in cacao nibs.
  4. Grease a ramekin and pour batter into it.
  5. Bake in oven for approximately 25 minutes, or until the center is set.
  6. While the oatmeal bake is cooking, mash the other half of the banana in a bowl and stir in honey and peanut butter. Add a splash of almond milk to create a thinner, “sauce-like” consistency.
  7. When oatmeal bake is done, remove from ramekin and place in a bowl. Top with banana-peanut butter sauce and additional cacao nibs if desired.
