Blueberry Banana-Nut Oatmeal

Oatmeal has been an acquired taste and over recent years, I’ve become completely obsessed. I’m not someone who can stick to the same foods everyday, I get bored easily so I like to have a lot of variety with my foods. Oatmeal is perfect because you can switch up your toppings every morning. I also find every time I do have it for breakfast it keeps me full for hours & I’m not craving any unhealthy foods later in the day. My current morning go-to is what I like to call blueberry banana-nut.


Ingredients (makes one serving):

1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup water or vanilla almond milk (or 1/2 cup each)
1 small banana
Handful of blueberries
1-2 tbsp chopped nuts
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp coconut sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

Recipe

1.  Add oats, water and milk into a saucepan and turn heat to medium. You can also add in 1/2 banana (thinly sliced) into the mixture. Cook until oats begin to bubble.

2. Stir until oats become thick and creamy, it should take 3-5 minutes. You can reduce to a low heat and keep cooking if you’d like the texture to be thicker.

3. Remove pan from heat, stir in cinnamon, coconut sugar and vanilla.

4. Scoop finished oatmeal into a bowl, top with blueberries, chopped nuts (I used almonds, walnuts also work amazingly) & 1/2 sliced banana.

I can’t get enough of this flavour combination. I look forward to it every morning, and if I’m honest, I could probably eat it for lunch as well. I guess it’s one thing that makes Winter a little more bearable.
