I got to enjoy my oatmeal today with a humongous dollop of gingery pear and apple sauce!
And it’s a great opportunity for me to share with you my latest oatmeal hack! Remember when I was yapping about how I like to take plain instant oatmeal and jazz it up rather than going through the trouble of making oatmeal from scratch? Well, I’ve discovered that I can make instant oatmeal with real whole oats!
I just fill my bowl with these few things:
- 1 banana torn into pieces
- 2 spoonfuls whole rolled oats
- 1 spoonful oat bran
- 1 spoonful flax meal
- 1 spoonful chia seeds
- almond milk to desired thickness
I mix it up and microwave for about 1 minute and 15 seconds, stirring once halfway through. It really does cook completely and thicken up with the help from the flax, chia, and oat bran.
That’s not all for today though, I’ve got another recipe to share later!
