On a hectic morning, you need to have a quick breakfast, but a healthy & hearty one to start the day right. This was something I made one morning in just that situation & it was delicious & satisfying, as well as healthy. If you have Celiac Disease, like myself, or a sensitivity to gluten & wheat, make sure the oats are gluten free. Sometimes they’re processed in a facility where there’s cross-contamination, so, making sure it’s certified gluten free is crucial to your tummy. Enjoy. 🙂
3/4 cups gluten free oats
1 1/4 cups non-dairy milk of our choice
1 Tbspn. real maple syrup
1/2 tsp. real vanilla extract
1 banana (cut into small coins)
pinch of salt
*optional: 1/8 cup chopped walnuts
*optional: 1/2 Tbspn. light brown sugar
This recipe is for one serving.
- Place everything in a saucepan & stir constantly over a medium-high heat. Don’t let it burn. It only takes a few minutes to get the flavors melded together, heated & a nice consistency.
