Ingredients
  • 2 ½ cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup egg whites
  • 2 cups almond milk (I used Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 4 slices center cut bacon, cooked, chopped into bits (divided)
  • ½ cup powdered peanut butter (Or substitute ⅓ cup of any peanut or nut butter. Nutrition stats will vary from those listed below.)
  • ½ cup water (omit if using regular peanut or nut butter)
  • 1 banana, sliced into thin coins
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • Greek Yogurt (optional)
  • Additional maple syrup (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. In another bowl, combine the egg whites, almond milk, vanilla extract, and bananas.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Stir in half of the bacon bits.
  5. Pour the mixture into a baking dish. My dish was 9 x 7.
  6. If using powdered peanut butter, mix the powder and water in a small bowl, stirring until it forms a thick and creamy mixture. Skip this step if using regular peanut or nut butter.
  7. Drizzle the PB2 over the mixture in the casserole dish and top the dish with the remaining banana slices. If using peanut or nut butter, drop small spoonfuls over the top of the oatmeal.
  8. Place the dish in the oven to bake.
  9. In a small dish, combine the remaining bacon bits with a teaspoon of maple syrup. Set aside.
  10. At the 20 minute mark, sprinkle the bacon bits over the oatmeal.
  11. Bake the oatmeal for another 10 minutes. Serve warm.
  12. Top each serving with a dollop of Greek yogurt and drizzle with with maple syrup.
