Crunchy Peanut Butter & Banana Baked Oatmeal with chocolate chips and sliced banana.
Crunchy Peanut Butter & Banana Baked Oatmeal
-1/2 c oats
-1 c milk of choice
-2 tbsp egg whites
-2 tbsp peanut butter
-1 tbsp peanuts
-1/4 tsp cinnamon
-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
-1/4 tsp baking powder
-chocolate chips for topping (optional but recommended)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Combine the oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and peanuts in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mash 3/4 of your banana. Add the milk, vanilla, and egg whites to the mashed banana, and stir briefly. Add the wet to the dry, then mix until everything is evenly combined. Add the peanut butter, and gently mix it in. I like to leave chunks floating around, but you can mix it completely if you want. Transfer the batter to a ramekin, and top with chocolate chips if you choose to use them. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes, then enjoy.
