I absolutely love breakfast–it might just be my favorite meal of the day. The last recipe I posted is for lunch or dinner, so I’m going to share with you guys one of my favorite go-to breakfast recipes.
I love having oats for breakfast because they’re super versatile and full of fiber which will help keep you full until lunch time. I usually like to add some fruit in mine (usually whatever I have in the house or whatever is in season) and then some other goodies that go well with the flavor of the fruit. The one I’m going to break down today is banana + peanut butter.
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 banana
- 2 tbsp. peanut butter
- a pinch of cinnamon
- a pinch of chia seeds
- a few drops of vanilla extract or a drizzle of honey (optional for sweetness)
HOW TO MAKE:
- Bring your cup of water to a boil. While the water is heating up, cut up the banana into slices, and then cut those slices in half so you have little half-circles.
- Once the water is boiling, then stir in the oats, cooking them on medium heat for about 5 minutes. (If you choose to have vanilla extract, put it in while the oats are cooking and mix it all together). After those 5 minutes, the oats are usually where I like them to be texture-wise, however you can adjust the cooking time according to your own preferences.
- Place the oatmeal into your bowl, and then add on your banana, the tablespoons of peanut butter, some cinnamon and your chia seeds. (If you choose to have honey, you can drizzle it on top of all your other fixings).
