Jessica's Healthy Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal
Preheat oven to 350
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup water or milk - I like any flavor of Unsweetened Almond Breeze

3 dashes of cinnamon
drizzle of honey
6 walnut halves
1/2 tbsp my Vitamix all-natural peanut butter
Step 1: Mash the banana in an oven-safe bowl
Step 2: Add the oats
Step 3: Add the water - I ran out of my Unsweetened Almond Breeze :(
Step 4: Add the egg white, protein powder, baking powder, cinnamon, and honey
Step 5: Add the walnut halves and mix!
Step 6: Put in oven for 30 minutes (and do something productive - I showered for work)
The picture-perfect Healthy Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal
I loved this oatmeal bake so much!! I will definitely make this again. It will be perfect for family weekends, sleepovers, brunches, or any kind of shower. This oatmeal smelled like I have been baking banana bread all day. I loved the taste and texture. The cinnamon and honey really adds to the flavor. This oatmeal was very filling and I couldn't bring myself to finish the last 3 bites. I definitely recommend trying this oatmeal bake - either mine or the Jenny Grothe version. If you like banana bread, I think you will be completely satisfied.
And for WIAW, I had a grilled romaine and artichoke heart salad with grilled shrimp from Ken Stewart's Lodge. I just love that salad - next time I am going to try it with grilled salmon! For my afternoon snack I had Whole Foods 365 Greek Yogurt with cinnamon and chia seeds mixed in and topped with Jessica's Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Granola. I was on the run non-stop after work, so for dinner I had another Quest Bar - the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough - my new favorite Quest Bar! I then ate one of my homemade protein bars after I came home from an hour and a half meeting. I think for my What I Ate Wednesday, I did a pretty good job of being healthy.
Now I need to workout and get to bed. Goodnight!!
