Ingredients
  

Oatmeal

  • 2 cups Organic Old-Fashioned Oats
  • 2 Super ripe, spotty bananas
  • 3 tbsp Protein Powder *Can Omit but see notes
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup **See Notes
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup almond butter ***See Notes
  • 1 1/2 tbsp ground flax seeds *Can Omit
  • 2-3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Maple Cashew Cream Icing

  • 1 cup Cashews
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Instructions
 

Oats

  • Preheat oven to 375F. Spray or parchment line an 8x11 inch pan. 8x9 or 8x8 would also work, you may just need to adjust the cooking time!
  • You can mix this in the pot you plan to bake the oats in or mix everything in a bowl and transfer to the pan. & then transfer to the pan. Mash the banana really well, then add in the remaining ingredients. If using protein powder, you may want to add an extra tbsp or two of milk if your mixture is SUPER thick.
  • Make sure the mixture is spread evenly in the pan. Bake for 32-35 mins, until golden and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Icing

  • Blend all ingredients in a high-powdered blender until SUPER smooth. Taste and adjust as you'd like.
  • Spread over the oats or drizzle over the top. Enjoy!

Notes

*If omitting the protein powder, I would start with 1 1/4 cups milk at first, adding more if needed. 
**The maple syrup is optional! I find it more enjoyable with it. You can sub monk fruit or keto maple syrup for a lower sugar option.
***Any nut or seed butter will work, however I don't recommend using peanut butter as it's a strong flavor and won't give the same cinnamon roll feel! You can sub sunflower seed butter or tahini for nut-free.
