Banana Chocolate Chip Breakfast Bake

Banana chocolate chip breakfast bake

Sunday breakfast is pretty much the thing I most look forward to the entire week. Well, besides the sleeping in part that coincides with them. Sleep might actually be my favorite thing about life in general, but Sunday breakfast is right behind it.

It’s lazy, unrushed and I try and make it a point to never have the same thing twice. Hence why there are quite a few breakfast recipes on here.

Welcome to the newest concoction.

Banana chocolate breakfast bake

If you like banana bread, chocolate chip and/or oatmeal cookies, you will like this. And if there are actually people out there who don’t like one of those things, my world has just been turned upside down.

The best part of course is that it’s a pretty healthy version of those three desserts. Considering I spent my Saturday night at Dick’s buying clearance spandex shorts (like the short, short ones) that’s a good thing.

Looks delicious! Definitely pinning this one to try soon. Always looking for more breakfast options. Oatmeal gets a little old.

I don't think there can possibly be any better combination than you've created here. I'm going to have to surprise my roomies with breakfast sometime this week.

Could I use white/wheat flour instead? I don't have the spelt or almond flour.

Kelly- I think that would sub fine for the spelt. If you don't have almond flour, it's just ground up almonds so would it be possible to make your own? I'm not sure how it would turn out if you use white/wheat exclusively. I wouldn't use 100% whole wheat unless it's ww pastry otherwise it will probably turn out too gritty and dry.

I'm aware that this is so not the point, but I LOVE your dishes. And this one is amazing! There should be a dish swap for (food)bloggers so you get to have photos with new dishes.
