almond butter banana oatmeal

Y’all there is just something about oatmeal. I love it. I make it a few days a week and it’s so cleansing!! This is my favorite way to make hot oats. Adding the banana in the cooking process makes it sweet without adding any sweetener! Although I add maple syrup sometimes – just a little goes a long way! Oh and warning: this recipe may “clean” you out! Tons of fiber! Here’s my recipe:

serves 2

ingredients:

  • 1 c organic oats
  • 1 tbsp steel cut oats (for crunch)
  • 1 chopped banana
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 6 tbsp egg whites (extra protein; optional)
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • cinnamon
  • dash sea salt (brings out the sweetness)
  • dash of pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp of maple syrup (optional)

Put your oats in a pot and add 2 cups of water. Add the banana, sea salt, cinnamon and vanilla. Bring to a boil stirring occasionally. Reduce temperature to low and add the egg whites. Stir. After a few minutes add the remaining ingredients: almond butter, chia seeds. Turn off the stove and add 1 tbsp of maple syrup if desired. Spoon into two bowls and enjoy! Today I topped mine with organic cultured probiotic yogurt and it was divine! This will keep you full for hours! Enjoy your Sunday!
