I told you I would do better! Last night I was unexpectedly free when I was supposed to have been busy. So I took advantage of my night off by going to my favorite work-out class, danceaton. One day I will write a blog post specifically dedicated to how amazing this class is, but for now I’ll just say I’ve been four times this week because I have so much fun and it’s such a great workout. I digress. When I got home I got on Pintrest and came across a recipe that another friend pinned for peanut butter banana oatmeal squares.
Having absolutely nothing to do, I was probably a little too excited when I realized that I had every single ingredient this recipe required on hand at that moment. As usual I made a substitution, but only a small one. I had quick cooking oats, but I also had several flavors of organic instant oatmeal on hand. After a 5-minute internal debate, I decided to use a package of apple cinnamon in place of 1/2 cup of the standard. I would like more banana flavor too, so next time I am going to use 1 1/2 to 2 bananas. That being said, I also topped mine with banana.
They turned out well. I ate them for dessert last night and this morning they tasted especially delicious cold. I will enjoy them for breakfast all weekend. Let me know if you make them, I’d love to hear how they turned out for you. Here’s another link to the recipe.
