Banana Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal

I've made a variation of this before.... But this time I tweaked it a bit.  Took out the berries .... added some protein powder.... and added some YUMMY dark chocolate chips.  Who wouldn't like this?  It's perfect if you want something sweet/pastry like for breakfast but don't want the guilt.  It's also a perfect snack -- and would make a great pre or post-workout snack!! 

1 medium banana - sliced
1 cup quick oats
dash salt (I used salt substitute for lower sodium)
1/2 tsp baking powder (I used Rumford low sodium)
1 egg
1 scoop vanilla protein
1 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 tsp honey
3/4 tsp Truvia (or sweetener of choice)
1tsp vanilla extract
1tbsp chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate chips)

Preheat oven to 375.  Spray 8x8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.  Place banana slices on bottom of baking dish in single layer.  Sprinkle with some cinnamon, and some 1/4 tsp Truvia.  Cover dish with foil and bake for 15 minutes.  Combine dry ingredients (oatmeal, salt, baking powder, truvia, & cinnamon) in a dish.  In another dish, whisk together milk, honey, vanilla, & egg.   Pour oatmeal mixture over bananas.  Then pour milk mixture over oatmeal & bananas. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top.  Bake 30 minutes, until oatmeal is set.

Makes 6 servings.
