This is one of my go to meals when time is tight and I need that boost. Eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or pre-ride meal, this is sure to satisfy. For some added protein add some vanilla Greek yogurt as a topping!
Ingredients (makes 6 servings)
2 cups Steel-cut oats
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups almond milk (or light soy milk)
2 medium eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil (melted and slightly cooled)
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 ripe bananas (cut into 1/2 inch pieces)
2 cups fresh, or frozen & thawed blueberries
Preheat oven to 375. Grease the inside of an eight-inch square baking dish.
In a medium bowl, combine the oats, half the walnuts, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Reserve.
In another medium bowl, combine the honey, milk, eggs, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Set aside.
Arrange the bananas in layers on the bottom of the baking dish.
Place 1 1/2 cups blueberries on top.
Cover the fruit with the oats mixture.
Slowly pour the milk/egg mixture over the fruit and oats, making sure it covers them completely.
Sprinkle the remaining berries on walnuts on top.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and the mixture has set. Remove from the oven. Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes before cutting.
Store in fridge.
