- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1 TBSP chia seeds
- 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or liquid of choice)
- 1 stevia packet
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Slice and mash 1/2 a ripe banana in a bowl (it makes the oatmeal sweet!), then add the rest of the ingredients. Stir well and then microwave for 2-3 minutes. Personally, I like my oatmeal thick and all the liquid cooked off to where it’s almost like it’s been baked, so I cook mine in the microwave for 3-3:30 minutes.
This is the base of any oatmeal I’ve created. The flavor explosions occur with the different fruits, spices, nut butters, nuts, extracts, or whatever else you can add! You could stir in instant coffee granules, protein powders, flax, hemp seeds, coconut, raisins, etc. Soo many options. It’s great to get creative – no two bowls of oatmeal are ever the same for me :)
For the oatmeal in the picture I also put in sliced apples and pears before microwaving it, then I topped the oatmeal with more apple/pear slices, almond butter, unsweetened coconut shredds, more chia seeds, and a little sugar free syrup. Heartwarmingggg<3
