Blueberry Oatmeal Bake

blueberry-oatmeal-bakeThis came from Skinnytaste. My whole family loved it which makes it a winner in my book. It is easy, healthy and satisfying. This is perfect to make ahead for the week or for a weekend breakfast treat. When I made it, I doubled the recipe (except 2 bananas – that amount was fine to cover the bottom of a 9X13 dish).

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe medium bananas, sliced into 1/2″ pieces
  • 1 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup uncooked quick oats
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 8×8 baking dish. Arrange banana slices in a single layer on the bottom. Sprinkle with half of the blueberries over the bananas, then 1/4 tsp cinnamon and 1 tbsp honey. Cover with foil and bake 15 minutes.

Meanwhile in a bowl, combine oats, half of nuts, baking powder, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together remaining honey (3 tbsp), milk, egg and vanilla.

Remove bananas from oven, pour oat mixture over bananas and blueberries. Then pour milk mixture over the oats, distributing evenly. Sprinkle remaining blueberries and nuts over the top.

Bake for 30 minutes. Serve warm.

Blueberry Coconut Smoothie

blueberry smoothieYum! I’ve been making these smoothies for the kids mid-afternoon for a healthy snack. They love the vibrant color and they get so excited for it! I love the Whole Foods Plant-Based Nutrition Shake Dark Chocolate protein. It is loaded with vitamins and minerals and the base of the powder is from pea protein, hemp protein and brown rice protein. I also like it because the sugar is low, it is sweetened with stevia. I like adding coconut oil in smoothies – it helps you feel full for longer and is healthy for brain health.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (may need to add a little more while blending)
  • 1 scoop Whole Foods Plant Based Nutrition Shake Dark Chocolate
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen organic blueberries
  • 1 tbsp. organic coconut oil
  • 1 large handful fresh kale
Blend and enjoy!!
