Banana Baked Protein Oatmeal

These baked oatmeal bars have been a lifesaver for mornings I'm trying to hurry on my "lunch hour" (I come home from work on my break) while I'm trying to get kids off to school too. I grab a piece from the fridge, nuke it for like 30 seconds and smear with some peanut butter and greek yogurt. Delicious! It's almost like a banana bread. Today I made my 3rd & 4th batch since finding this recipe, I actually doubled it and baked it in a 9x13 (baked for about 40-45 mins), to freeze pieces for later.

Banana Baked Protein Oatmeal
inspired by Southern In Law

1 cup gluten free oats
1/2 cup protein powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 TBL chia seeds
1/4 cup chopped nuts
2 medium bananas
1 TBL vanilla extract
4 large egg whites
1 cup unsweetened plain almond milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350' and grease an 8x8 (or pie plate) glass baking dish.
In a mixing bowl, mash your banana and add in all of the other ingredients, mix until combined.
Pour oatmeal mix into the baking dish and bake for about 35 minutes, or until cooked through. Once baked, allow to cool slightly before cutting and serving, or serve chilled. Keeps well for a few days or freeze for later.

If desired, serve with peanut butter mixed with greek yogurt as a topping.
