INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 medium-sized ripe banana, mashed (50 g or 1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp (16 g) nut butter
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 slice of hearty bread, cubed
  • 1/4 cup (20 g) quick oats

PREPARATION

  • Preheat oven to 375F (190C) and lightly grease an individually-sized oven-safe dish. Set aside.
  • Combine banana, almond milk, nut butter, maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla extract in a large shallow bowl, mixing until fully combined. Pour bread cubes into the mixture and use a fork to lightly press down so that they absorb most of the liquid. Add oats and gently stir until everything is evenly incorporated. If the mix seems too dry, add a splash of extra milk.
  • Transfer mixture to your prepared dish, adding a few slices of banana on top if desired. Bake for 20 minutes, until the bake has set and the top has turned golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and top with toppings of choice or simply enjoy as is!
