Chocolate banana baked oatmeal

This post is sponsored on behalf of #Choctoberfest and our generous sponsors. I received free product from Barlean's. As always, all opinions are my own.

Chocolate and banana baked oatmeal is sure to be a family favorite and this one is even extra special because it's made with Barlean's Chocolate Silk Greens Powder. That means it contains not only fair trade cocoa powder, but also natural plant fiber from chicory and flaxseed as well as nutrients from more than a dozen fruits and vegetables. Perfect for adding an extra nutrition boost to your oatmeal, smoothies, yogurt, and even chocolate treats. My family and I love baked oatmeals (like pumpkin, peanut butter, carrot cake, and even zucchini bread), especially my toddlers, so I was glad to be able to make them a chocolate version using this powder. It tasted delicious - not really any different than using a regular cocoa powder. I used bananas for some fruit and sweetness because they pair so nicely with chocolate. This will be making a frequent appearance on our breakfast menu for sure!

Chocolate banana baked oatmeal
2 very ripe medium bananas
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup Barlean's Chocolate Silk Green Powder (or plain cocoa powder)
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled, plus more for greasing pan
1-1/2 cups quick cooking oats
1/4 cup lightly packed light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup milk

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease an 8"x8" baking dish.

In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Whisk in the egg through butter until well-combined. Then stir in the remaining ingredients.

Pour into the prepared baking dish and bake for 25-28 minutes, until golden and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Let cool slightly and cut into squares. Serve with a dollop of yogurt and sliced bananas, if desired.
