PNB & Banana Oatmeal

pnb and banana oats

I made this one in my Dutch oven on the stove the other day and I am just finishing up the last batch for tomorrow’s breakfast. Nothing fills me up and sets me up for a good day (nutritionally) like an oatmeal breakfast. It covers all the basis. No cravings and no crazy binge moments because I am all of a sudden starving! Oatmeal and peanut butter “stick to your ribs”, that is for sure! And to think this recipe was created b/c I broke the can opener trying to open the can of pumpkin and I was too cheap to buy pecans to make an official pumpkin oatmeal! I love signs from the universe! This one was, “just use peanut butter and banana silly!”

What you need>>>

2 cups oats

2 c unsweetened almond milk

1 large banana-chopped

2 tsp honey

2 heaping tbsp natural peanut butter

spices-cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger-to your liking

(you could also add chia seeds and or flax seeds….or nuts!)

How to make>>>

In pot or Dutch oven on stove top combine all ingredients over med heat. Let it go for a few min and then stir and simmer for 15 to 20 min.

Makes 5 servings!! Enjoy!! Great for those weekly meal preps or for a family breakfast that morning! xo, A

Ultimate Oatmeal w/ greek yogurt, almond butter, almond milk, protein powder, strawberries and cinnamon!

Mix together:

1/2 cup old-fashioned oats

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

Microwave for 1 min

Add and stir in:

1/2 scoop vanilla creme protein powder

1 tsp plain Greek yogurt

1 tsp almond butter

As much cinnamon as you want-about 1/4 tsp or so

Microwave for another 1 and 1/2 min (oatmeal is tricky so you have to keep an eye on it when it is in the microwave or it will explode-not fun to clean up but not the worst thing that can happen in your day!)

Slice your favorite berries or apples and top off (about 1/2 cup chopped)

Essential to a balanced breakfast, you have your clean oats (complex carbs) and protein (Greek yogurt, almond butter and powder) with a kiss of natural sugar from the berries!!

Hope you enjoy this as much as I do!!!
