So good! And you the best part–it will feed you breakfast for a few days (if you don’t have to share it). I actually got this idea from my son’s tutor. She is a retired nun, and she swears by this breakfast. She is still sharp as a tack, so I’m rolling with it. Besides, it tastes super good. I add in the protein powder for an extra protein kick. I find the protein gives it a little extra sweetness, so you can go easy on the maple syrup.
2 cups rolled oats
4 large eggs
1/4 cup vanilla protein powder (code: ashley22 for free shipping in the US)
2 cups milk of choice (I like macadamia nut milk)
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp maple syrup
1-2 ripe bananas
mixed berries (frozen or fresh)
*I, personally, use all the optional ingredients. Go big or go home, ya know.
1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×13 baking dish with spray.
2: In large mixing bowl, combine whisked eggs, protein powder, maple syrup, vanilla, and milk.
3: Add in the oats and let sit for 30 minutes if possible. If not, no biggie. It just helps to soften the oats a bit before baking.
4: Fold in the nuts, bananas, berry and lemon zest if you’d like.
5: Transfer to the prepped baking pan, and bake for about 30 minutes. Check that the edges are golden and the center is set.
6: Let cool a bit before eating.
Note: I really love it with some vanilla greek yogurt and a drizzle of peanut butter on the top. But you do you!!
