Breakfast tends to be something I neglect. I’d say 90% of mornings I’m grabbing a fruit or carb to go (very low in calories & protein or extremely high). Something simple, fast, and not necessarily nutritious. But lately I’ve been trying to address that.
It hasn’t been easy but I’m finding new ways to start my morning on the right foot. Beginning with what I put in my body after crawling out of bed. Let’s be real, it’s a struggle.
Everyday is a fresh start
Today, I wanted to share the easiest banana oatmeal recipe I’ve been eating on the daily. It fits all the needs I’ve been searching for in a breakfast and keeps me full until my next meal. It’s cheap, tasty, and best of all quick to prepare. Read below to get the full recipe!
Things We Need
Rolled Oats – I recommend Quaker 1 Minute
Milk of choice
Start with your favorite blend of rolled oats. I like a thicker and more crunchy oatmeal so the kind I chose is a little on the larger side. Add 1/2 cup to a cup of oats into a microwave safe bowl.
Carefully pour your choice of milk into the bowl until the liquid is barely covering the top of the oats. Less is more so feel free to start with less liquid and add later if you need.
Cut your banana in half and begin mashing one half into the oatmeal mixture. This will make sure our breakfast has a strong banana flavor.
Microwave on high for 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
Stir mixture and return to microwave to heat for another 1 minute.
Add in cinnamon as desired and almond butter for taste.
Take the rest of the banana we saved from earlier and slice that on top of the prepared oatmeal.
Enjoy your delicious breakfast!
