#whatiatemonday | Banana Nut Oatmeal

Standard

Every Monday I have been sharing my meals on Instagram. One of my followers suggested that I share recipes on the blog, thus begins my #whatiatemonday posts. Today I am sharing my breakfast from last week, Banana Nut Oatmeal (a personal favorite).

This recipe stems from my love of all things banana nut bread, muffin, ice cream, etc. Unfortunately banana nut bread, in its most delicious form, is decidedly unsuitable for daily consumption. At the same time, I do not want to make my favorite treat “healthy” just to eat it on a daily basis.

Instead I followed my own advice. I took something I enjoy eating, and found a healthier way to enjoy the same flavors. I do not particularly enjoy oatmeal enough to eat it daily, but this recipe is the exception. Truly, I could eat this every single day and be happy.

Best of all, its nutricious, filing, and tasty. I used a combination of almond milk and water to cook the oatmeal. Instead of butter and sugar, I added honey to sweeten and vanilla extract for that baked treat flavor. Lastly frozen banana creates the perfect texture, but especially that baked banana flavor.

I enjoy the oatmeal with cooked nuts as well as topped with fresh nuts (usually walnuts or almonds). Post workout I combine the Banana Nut Oatmeal with a green smoothie with added protein. Please let me know if you try this delightfully healthy breakfast and share with me your favorite breakfast treat!
