Baked Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal

Arizona Winters are funny. It drops below 60 degrees, and people lose their minds. One of our friends had three different jacket types in her car this weekend to prepare for these extreme temperatures. These cold, bleary winter mornings (laugh it up, Midwesterns) are the perfect time to create something delicious and hearty for breakfast. If you made our Egg White Cups, you know we love to have a lot of variety when it comes to our breakfasts, since we prep everything to keep things easy. This recipe contains everything we love– peanut butter, bananas, and carbs. As an added bonus, it contains complex carbohydrates and healthy fat to keep you full and energized all day without being a sugar bomb.
