There probably isn’t another combo I love more than chocolate, peanut butter, and banana. I eat it almost everyday in some form, and I still can’t get enough! I took my PB&J baked oatmeal recipe and modified it a little to create this beauty and it is FANTASTIC! Going to be living off it, and I can’t wait! I think you all are really going to like this one! Let me know what you think if you make it!!
-2 cups rolled oats (or quick, I prefer quick though because I think it gives the bakes a better consistency!)
-1.5 cups almond milk
-1/3 cup peanut butter
-1/3 cup maple syrup
-1 tbsp chia seeds
-1 tsp baking powder
-1 tsp vanilla
-1/4 tsp sea salt
-1/3 cup chocolate chips
-1 banana, sliced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix together all the wet ingredients. Add in the dry ingredients, except the chocolate chips and banana. Once everything is mixed together, add in the chocolate chips & banana (you can reserve some of both for topping if you’d like) and fold together.
Pour the mixture into a greased dish (i used an 8×8 but you can use any similar size). Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 min. Make sure to start checking it around 25 min depending on what size pan you use!
This recipe makes about 4-6 servings depending on your hunger! Store in the fridge for up to a week. It also freezes wonderfully in slices in a freezer bag. To thaw, just thaw in the fridge overnight & warm it up in the morning or eat it cold (I actually love it cold).
Top it off with whatever you like! My favorite is nut butter and yogurt! You can add fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup or honey too! Enjoy!
