I have a new favorite breakfast. This is a miracle!
This entire week my nights have been pretty busy and I haven’t had the opportunity to make some of my favorite meals for dinner, so I was excited to have last night all to myself to get creative with dinner. I love breakfast foods and could easily eat breakfast for lunch and dinner, but when I work early, it’s very difficult and impossible to make elaborate breakfasts. I usually have to stick to yogurt bowls, protein shakes and overnight oats.
Last night I knew exactly what I wanted to make. I previously failed at making oatmeal with peanut butter and have been wanted to redeem myself ever since. I have seen so many bloggers rave about peanut butter oatmeal and I could never understand where their love came from, until last night.
Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 cup water
- Dash of Cinnamon
- 1/2 tbsp Chia seeds
- 1 scoop Peanut Butter
- Banana slices
- 1 Truvia packet or sweetener of your choice
- Mix your oats and water in a microwave safe bowl, and microwave for 3 minutes or until the oatmeal is at your desired consistency
- Add in your chia seeds, cinnamon and sweetener, and mix together
- Garnish with banana slices and peanut butter, mix and enjoy!
This had to have been one of the best bowls of oatmeal I’ve ever had, and I’m not just saying that either. The peanut butter was extra creamy and melted and mixed in perfectly in every spoonful. It left me with one full and happy belly!
Can’t wait to make this breakfast this weekend!
