Chunky Monkey Breakfast Bake

I heard this was "eh", "weird flavor" but because it sounded so good, I had to post it!
2 purple, 1 ¼ Yellow, 2 orange
For the bake:
¼ cup rolled oats
2 Tbsp oat bran*
2 Tbsp  flour of choice
¼ tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 medium ripe banana
¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
½ Tbsp maple syrup
½ tsp. vanilla extract
1 Tbsp mini chocolate chips

For the banana nut sauce:
1 Tbsp nut butter
other half of the banana
small splash of almond milk

Preheat oven to 350 and lightly spray an individual sized ramekin with cooking spray; set aside.  In a medium-sized bowl, combine the oats, oat bran, flour, baking powder and salt.  In a smaller bowl, roughly mash the banana before adding in the almond milk, maple syrup and vanilla, mixing until well combined.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until full incorporated.  Fold in the chocolate chips.  Transfer the dough to your greased ramekin and bake for 20 minutes until center is desired consistency.  Meanwhile, make the sauce by mashing the other half of banana in the same small bowl you used before and add a spoonful of nut butter.  Mix until smooth adding a splash of almond milk to reach desired consistency.  Pour over the bake once it sometimes comes out of the oven and sprinkle with additional chocolate chips if desired.


* If you don't have any oat bran on hand, just use an additional 2 Tbsp. of oats
