breakfast of thickened banana bread oatmeal topped with more banana and some pb on a side on a gloomy, rainy day.

{recipe}

you will need:

  • one banana
  • 1/2 cup of oats
  • 1/2 cup of almond milk
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • a dash of cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • + whatever additional toppings

instructions:

  • combine water and milk into a small saucepan and wait for it to boil
  • once it starts boiling, add the oats and stir occasionally until it simmers down and turn heat down to medium
  • add in around 1/3 or half of your banana (make sure it’s either mashed or cut into thin slices) and stir it in the oats
  • add in a dash of cinnamon to taste and continue to stir
  • keep stirring occasionally and wait for it to thicken to the consistency you like
  • once it’s done cooking, turn off the heat and scoop into a bowl
  • add more  cinnamon if you would like, top it with the rest of the banana, and your pb
  • enjoy!

>> note: I typically like to leave my oats in the pan for around a 30 seconds to a minute after I turn off the fire because i like my oats to be really fluffy. by leaving it  in the pan, it soaks up the rest of the liquid and becomes really nice and soft.
