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.

Banana bread breakfast bake with chocolate chips

And considering I spent the rest of my Saturday night at Harbor Freight Tools, Ulysses is lucky I’m sharing this with him.

  1. I love making banana/oat bakes but I am a cheater and use the microwave :) Yours is gorgeous and cute orange baking dish!

  2. I, too, love slow and lazy Sundays. I take my sweet time thinking of what to make for breakfast and make lists of what I want to do for the day or the week, mostly includes a lot of baking and cooking. This bake will have to go on my list, I would like to make this as a warm dessert after dinner. :)

  3. yum. i wish i would’ve read this BEFORE i ate breakfast… this will definitely be one of my breakfasts this week though!

  4. yippie yippie yum yum! quick question, though. What kind of protein powder do you use?!?! Whenever I try adding it to “bakes” they get super spongy and dry!

    1. I use Designer Whey and while I know people say protein powder does that to baked stuff, I’ve never had that experience with this brand! And the bonus is that I can get it in my normal grocery store and it’s cheap! (as far as protein powders go)

  5. Yum! That looks so good!!!! I love banana and chocolate together, great combination!!

  6. I know people who hate bananas, but love banana bread. You know, I don’t know if I actually know anyone who doesn’t like banana bread…
    This looks great, perfect for a lazy relaxed Sunday morning.

  7. This looks good! I might make that for breakfast tomorrow. Did you top it with anything?

    1. I topped it with cookie butter and strawberries, but almond butter would be a delicious (and slightly healthier) choice ;)
