Banana Chocolate Chip Oaties

 

I used to make these oaties allll the time, and somehow, totally forgot about them. It wasn't until I had a few extra ripe bananas on hand that I remembered to make them again… and now they’ll definitely be added frequently to my rotation. They have only 3 main ingredients and make a perfect make-ahead breakfast or snack. Did I mention that they’re almost too easy to make?!

This recipe is so easy that it can barely even be called a recipe. You pretty much just mix mashed, ripe bananas, oats and chocolate chips together and then bake them. Seriously, that’s it. If you’re feeling a little fancy (read: feel like taking an extra .5 seconds), you can also add cinnamon and vanilla extract to make these taste even better.

I’ve been having a few for an afternoon snack with a little bit of peanut butter all this week. It tastes SO good and most importantly, actually keeps me full until dinner. Store these oaties in an airtight container in the fridge or pantry for 3-5 days.
