Banana bread oatmeal

Banana bread is one of those foods that makes your insides giggle with joy. It’s too simple to fail at and too good to resist. And the fact that it has fruit in it makes you feel healthy a little better about gulping down half a loaf on your own. What? I don’t do that…

This treat however actually is rather healthy, the banana isn’t cooked for a long time so the nutrients are still there and the fiber from the oates and the flaxseeds (and don’t be afraid of flaxseeds, please, you wont be able to taste them but they are good for you) does you real good. All in all, this one is a WIN, as the kids say. Healthy breakfast that tastes like dessert, what more could you possibly ask for on a lazy Saturday morning?

Banana Bread Oatmeal

1 portion

Metric/US

7 tablespoons rolled oates (I use the high-fiber kind)

2 ½ dl OR 1 cup milk

1 tablespoon butter

1 ripe banana

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

½ teaspoon cinnamon

1 ½ teaspoons flaxseeds

1 pinch of salt (only if you used unsalted butter)

handful of walnuts

honey

Mix all ingredients EXCEPT THE BANANA in a small pot

Over medium heat, bring to simmer and let it bubble away gently for about 1-3 minutes.

While that is cooking, kill the banana with a weapon of your choice, I used a fork.

When the oat mixture has thickened, add the mashed up banana and stir.

Leave on heat for about one more minute, then you can transfer it to a bowl.
Serve with walnuts and a waterfall drizzle of honey.

NOTE: If you do not want any added sugar in your oatmeal, substitute the 1 tablespoon of caster sugar for an extra banana.

“jag älskar dig = I love you”

I brought out our juicer and made myself an apple and carrot concoction, it worked quite well with the “porridge” (I don’t like that word). You really should try this recipe, not to sound smug or anything, but it’s amazing. *Pats self on shoulder*

Happy cooking!
