Skinny Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Squares
I have been looking at this recipe for months now. I have read it over and over again and finally decided to whip some up for a healthy but filling breakfast.
I mean, look how delicious this looks! (Link)
My eyes did the talking and I just had to make this breakfast recipe! Did my eyes deceive me??
This is what you will need: (how i made it skinny)
-1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats-1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (I omitted this)
-1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1/2 cup milk (skim)
-1 large egg, lightly beaten (egg white only)
-1 large mashed banana
-1/4 cup creamy peanut butter (any kind that is low in fat and sodium)
-1 cup roasted nuts (optional)
In a large mixing bowl, add cooking oats, brown sugar, baking power, salt, and cinnamon and mix thoroughly.
Add vanilla extract, milk, and egg. The give it a mix!
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 min.
Like I always say, my Husband got into it before I could take a picture of mine.
At the start of this post I asked if my eyes deceived me. Well...unfortunately they did. I may have hyped this a little too much in my head and the end taste wasn't what I expected. I was looking forward to this and was disappointed. I even tried to add a little Peanut Butter on top like the picture...but no cigar. Maybe it was the spoon in the picture that made it this good. Who knows...
For those of you who have tried this or would like to try let me know your thoughts. If you have not tried this but are looking for a healthy breakfast and trying to get out of the cereal rut you may enjoy this.
