Serves: 16-20
Ingredients
  • ⅓ cup greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • ½ cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup quick oats
  • 2 overripe bananas, smashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1¼ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt, scant
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  3. Combine yogurt, oil, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and quick oats. Mix well with a fork or a hand mixer until combined. Stir in the smashed bananas. Set aside and let sit for about 10 minutes. (This step can be skipped, but it helps soften the oatmeal so it isn't as noticeable in the cake.)
  4. Next, add eggs and vanilla. Mix until thoroughly incorporated.
  5. Mix in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until evenly combined.
  6. Stir in chocolate chips and spread evenly in the greased 9x13 pan. If you prefer, you can reserve half of the chocolate chips to spread on top.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 17-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
