Chocolate Banana Protein Oat Bites

Rich and fudgy, this banana chocolate baked oatmeal is supercharged with protein from a protein shake, spread and protein powder as well as being gluten free.

This recipe is basically my baked oats recipe, in which I’ll sometimes make a big batch and have a few portions for breakfast or I’ll slice it into squares to make a yummy snack like with this one. Either way its such an easy meal or snack you can prep in advance and store in the fridge for a week. You could even store it in the freezer and just grab a slice out the morning you fancy some.

The great thing about this recipe is you only need one bowl and a handful of base ingredients;

Bananas – sweetness and all that potassium goodness.

Oats – the perfect slow release high energy food

Flaxseed- full of antioxidants and it helps bind together the oat mixture

Baking powder – makes the finished, cooked oatmeal lighter and not dense.

Sugar free maple syrup or regular maple syrup

Alongside these ingredients I used a banana protein shake but you could sub for a plant based milk. I also used a chocolate spread and chocolate protein powder, which not only add protein but heaps of flavour!
