Yay! It's getting to be "Berry Season!!!!"
Okay, I'm going to be upfront and admit these pictures aren't that great. Sorry...phone pics!
Although the pics aren't stellar, this is a healthy dish for grubbin' and goin'.
This Protein & Blueberry Oat Bake was my "take" on combination of 2 recipes....from SkinnyTaste and Amanda Kopeski. Well, actually, this recipe is a take on Amanda Kopeski's recipe which is a take on SkinnyTaste's recipe. Kind of like so-and-so told so-and-so who heard it form so-and-so.....Well, nonethless, cooking is about experimenting and making this work for you.
I combined all the ingredients the night before I baked, covered it with saran wrap in the refrigerator (unbaked), and cooked it in the a.m. as I got ready for work.
That way - minimal work in the morning! ('Cause that's my workout time, yo.)
"The Unbaked Oat Bake"
The finished product!
Obviously, I didn't eat all this at once - I've kept this stored in the refrigerator, just cut a slice as needed, heat it up for about 30 seconds, and "Hello, breakfast."
Here's the recipe:
2 scoops of Optimum Whey Nutrition Protein Powder - Banana Flavored
1 cup of old fashioned oats
1 cup of almond milk
1 Flax Egg (1 Tbs Milled Flax Seed + 3 Tbs Water)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp of butter or vanilla extract
About 2/3 cup of blueberries (I'm not going to lie, I just "eyeballed" it)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2) Combine all ingredients except walnuts.
3) Spray an 8x8 casserole dish with non-stick spray and pour mixture into dish.
4) Top with Walnuts
5) Bake for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
6) Remove from oven. Let cool. Yum!
**For the overnight version, just complete steps 2 & 3, cover and place in the refrigerator until baking the next morning.
Remember, grub & go!
This recipe is a perfect compliment to Tina Real's Best Body Bootcamp!
It's kickin' my boo-tay! (And making me a starvin' marvin!)
