If you think you hate oatmeal, it is probably because you have never tried it with banana in it. Adding banana to your oats makes them fluffy and sweet, and I can’t eat oats any other way anymore. I learned about bananas in oats from Kath and Chelsea, and I can never go back to instant oats or banana-less oats!
This morning I saw we had one banana left on the counter, and since we are leaving for Colorado tonight, it had to be eaten. Enter: OATS!
Here is how I make mine…
Peanut Butter Banana Coconut Oatmeal
1/4 cup dry rolled oats
1.25 cups water
dash sea salt
3/4 banana, split into 1/2 banana and 1/4 banana
1 tbs peanut butter
5 g shredded sweetened coconut
Heat water on high in a small pot. Slice half a banana in small pieces and add to the water. Also add a dash of cinnamon and sea salt. Stir. When the mixture comes to a boil, lower to medium heat and add the oats. Stir well every couple of minutes until the oats have absorbed all the water and the banana has slightly dissolved. Pour into a bowl and top with 1/4 banana, sliced, 1 tbs peanut butter, and 5 g shredded coconut. I mix it all up, and enjoy!
**Note: the Quaker Oats canister suggests much less liquid than I use, but I have found that the recommended amount leaves the oats a little too chewy for my liking. Also, I always use water and have never tried them with milk!
And a LOVEly Weekend.
