Today is my last day of work before our big move to Hawaii and the arrival of baby #2! It’s bittersweet, as I will definitely miss seeing patients and being at the office with my staff. I wanted to bring them something special on my last day, and decided on chocolate chip cookies (which will be featured tomorrow), but this would have been a good breakfast choice as well :) Is anybody else addicted to Pinterest? One of my friends pinned this recipe from Gingerbread Bagels, and I knew I had to give it a try! It’s super healthy with no oil or butter, and has all the goodness of creamy peanut butter, banana, and oatmeal…the perfect wholesome breakfast or snack!
Combine oats, light brown sugar, baking powder, kosher salt and cinnamon in a bowl. In a separate bowl mash up 1 banana, and then mix in the egg, milk, vanilla extract, and creamy peanut butter. Add the dry to the wet and mix until combined. Place in a greased 8×8 pan and smooth the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
