In case you missed it, summer is (officially) here (in the Northern hemisphere, anyway – Aussie readers, you can make this anyway, or Pin It and check back in six months). Summer cookouts abound and no one wants to turn on the oven, or even the stove if it can be avoided. Good news – this recipe requires neither! And while many summer desserts trick us with their emphasis on fruits, they can still be deceptively high in fat and calories. Not so with this decadent dish! I’ve taken the classic banana cream pie and turned it into a healthy, high-protein breakfast with the goodness of whole grain oats. Make mornings happier, especially if you have a few extra mouths around the breakfast table to feed (school summer vacation, anyone? You can always omit the protein powder and reduce the liquid slightly for the junior set). Enjoy the taste of a classic cool & creamy sweet summer-time dessert with none of the guilt (or excess fat or calories) in this healthy, high-protein make-ahead breakfast!
Every creamy bite is bursting with bananas! Instead of a rich custard laden with egg yolks and refined sugar, I used high-protein Greek yogurt and got classic banana cream pie flavour (hello old
friendfrenemy) with this amazing banana cream protein powder:

1 cup (80g) rolled oats – make sure these are gluten-free, if you require
1 scoop (28g) protein powder of choice – I used NEW! Quest Nutrition Banana Cream Protein Powder or you could also use Muscle Pharm, Combat Powder, Advanced Time Release Protein, Banana Cream*
1 cup (250mL or 240g) unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup (113g) plain non-fat Greek yogurt
1 tsp (5mL or 4g) vanilla extract or butter extract
2 large (125g each) bananas, sliced
1. Stir the oats and protein powder in a medium mixing bowl.
2. Add the almond milk, yogurt and flavour extract and mix thoroughly.
3. Reserving a few slices for garnish, either stir the bananas into the mixture OR alternate layers of sliced bananas with oatmeal mixture
4. Divide the mixture into two wide-mouth Mason jars or containers, garnish with reserved banana slices, and refrigerate overnight. Note the recipe easily halves for single servings or multiplies for more to feed the whole family (and any sleepover guests).
