One word: YUM! I never thought my oats could get yummier but boy did they! I was recently inspired by my friend Eugenia on Instagram (click here for her feed) to add in some sauteed bananas and oats. So I did, I also added in some blueberries, organic peanut butter, cinnamon, chia seeds and manuka honey. It turned out to be a great morning breakfast.
Oats are incredibly fibrous and healthy for you. They also keep you full and provide you with a great source of energy through out the morning! Oats break down slowly so they provide an on-going supply of energy to your body. By adding in some other nutrients, like fruits, oils and other proteins – it can be a complete meal. Heck sometimes I want to have oats for lunch or dinner.
Well I hope you enjoy this recipe and have a great week ahead!
SAUTEED BANANA APPLE OATS RECIPE
SERVES 1 | PREP TIME 10 MINS
- 1/2 cup of rolled oats
- 1 cup of vanilla sweetened almond milk
- 1/4 cup of organic blueberries
- 1 tsp of organic peanut butter
- 5-7 slices of a banana
- 5-7 slices of any apple of your choice
- 1 tsp of coconut oil
- pinch of cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- drizzle of honey
- sprinkle of chia seeds
In a small pot, bring your almond milk to a boil. Stir in the oats and reduce heat to medium stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let it stand for 2-3 minutes.
In a small non-stick pan set on medium heat, add coconut oil. Then add in your slices of bananas and apples. Fry on each side until golden brown and soft. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and cinnamon over top. Remove off heat.
Once you've prepared your toppings, add them to your oats in sections first with the sauteed fruits. Then blueberries. Next, sprinkle chia seeds over top and top off with a teaspoon of organic peanut butter. And finally drizzle over top with some honey.
Tip: If you prefer your oats with some liquid, I highly recommend pouring cold almond milk over top of that steamy bowl of oats. The contrast of the hot and cold is my favourite way to eats oats!
