1.5cupsold fashioned oats
1/3cuppeanut butter powder
2-3tbspcashew milkunsweetened, or almond milk or skim
Preheat the oven to 375F.
Spray a small baking dish or casserole with cooking spray. I used an 8.5" round casserole dish for this.
Add the bananas to the bottom of a mixing bowl, and mash them with a fork.
Add the applesauce, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and vanilla extract, and stir to combine.
Add the milk. Whisk together.
Add the oats. Fold in.
Pour the mixture evenly into the baking dish.
In a small bowl, combine the powdered peanut butter and extra milk to form a peanut butter consistency (start with 2 tbsp, work up to 3 tbsp or until the mixture resembles peanut butter).
Add the peanut butter mixture to a plastic sandwich bag, and snip the end to form a piping bag.
Pipe the peanut butter onto the oats, and then swirl using a toothpick.
Sprinkle the extra 1 tsp sugar on top of the oats.
Bake at 375 for 35-40 minutes or until set up. Allow the bake to cool before cutting.
