Dash Vanilla
Dash Cinnamon
2/3 Cup Almond Milk ( I use the unsweetened Chocolate Almond Milk 45 cal/cup)

3 Tablespoons PB2 combined with 3 Tablespoons Almond Milk, and set to the side for topping

     Preheat oven to 350 and spray a 9 X 9 pan with Pam. Blend Oats in Magic Bullet til flour like, Transfer to bowl and add protein powder, dash cinnamon and cocoa.  Whisk together banana, egg, honey, vanilla and almond milk til smooth and well combined.  Add dry ingredients until just combined. Heat Coconut Oil and 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips in small saucepan on low stirring continually til just melted and remove from heat, gently stir into batter and pour into prepared pan. Drizzle PB2 mixture in zig zag pattern across batter and use knife to slice thru batter to add some swirls.  Top with the 2 Tablespoons chips and bake for 18-22 minutes or just until cooked thru and top is set.
