Banana protein cake !

Standard

Healthy Baked Banana Protein Oatmeal Recipe serves 4-6low fat, gluten free, high protein, clean eating friendly, refined sugar free
1 cup (90g) gluten free rolled oats or gluten free quick oats *see notes

1/2 cup (ours was 60g**) protein powder

1 tsp baking powder

2 medium bananas, mashed (about 250g/just over a cup mashed)

1 tbsp vanilla extract 

1/2 cup (120g or 4 large) egg whites

1 cup milk of your choice (we use unsweetened almond)

Optional: choc chips/nuts/spices of your choice 

Preheat oven to 180C/350F

Grease and/or line a 8″ square or round tin and set aside 

Mash your banana in a medium mixing bowl and add in all of your other ingredients, mixing until combined. 

Pour your oatmeal mix into your baking dish and bake for 20-35 minutes, or until cooked through.

Once baked, allow to cool slightly before cutting and serving. I actually like mine cold so I usually pop the whole batch in the fridge once it’s cool and then slice it in the morning.

This will keep for 2-3 days in the fridge or can be frozen in slices in individual zip lock or freezer bags and then defrosted as needed (I just take one out the night before and leave it in the fridge and it’s ready to go in the morning!)

Top with nut butter, eat as is or serve however you fancy!

Notes:

*Find out more about oats on a gluten free diet. If you can’t tolerate oats you can replace them with quinoa flakes, however, the taste and texture will be different.

**All protein powders differ in weight so be sure to measure by cup. We recommend brown rice protein powder for the best results (particularly this one or this one), however, you can use your favourite protein powder – but do note that meal replacement drink mixes aren’t protein powder

If you like things really sweet, you may want to add some maple syrup or sugar into the recipe (but you may not need to do this if your protein powder is sweetened). If using a liquid sweetener, just take out an equal amount of the milk to account for it!
