Monkey bread

This recipe is a really good alternative to breakfast cereal. My version is (naturally) quite different from the one Johanna originally sent me. That original recipe also wants you to put it in a bowl and pour milk on it. But that would make it soggy, right? So don't do that. Unless you like soggy, mushy, grossitating breakfast with milk on it.

I eat them just as they are.

Mix in large bowl
3-4 mashed bananas
1/2 cup peanut butter (natural or not)
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups milk (I use skim)
1/2 cup brown sugar (use less if you want)
1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp baking powder
3 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup slivered or sliced almonds

You can also add other nuts if you like (ie 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds and or 1/4 cup sunflower seeds)

Grease a 13 X 9 inch pan. Pour mixture into pan. Bake for about 45-50 minutes at 350 until a toothpick comes out clean.

Cut in squares and freeze, sizing portions to suit you. Makes a good on the run breakfast
