I hope you are all having as good a day as I am. I know it sounds cliché, but I really do believe a good day starts with a good breakfast. Unfortunately, a good breakfast can be hard to find if you press the snooze button 4 times before dragging yourself out of bed and barely making it out on time (guilty).
That is why I developped today's recipe: Blueberry Banana Oatmeal. It is quick, easy and healthy, but tastes like dessert.
Here is what you'll need:
This oatmeal is packed with calcium, vitamins, whole grain and a couple of servings of fruit (yay!).
To create this lovely dish, simply mash a ripe banana and a handful of blueberries (I used 20 to be exact) until they are good and mushy and look like this:
Now add a couple of splashes of milk (1/8-1/4 of a cup) and a teaspoon of honey. PS: If you like your oatmeal nice and chunky (like me), add less milk. If you're a fan of a smoother oatmeal, add more milk.
Next add 4 tablespoons of quick-cooking oats and 1 tablespoon of chia seeds. If you don't have chia seeds, don't sweat it.
Now mix it all together and zap it in the microwave for about 1 minute and 15 seconds. When it's all done it will look like this:
Creamy. Dreamy. Yum!
This oatmeal tastes great and always keeps me full until its time for lunch. I pair it with a cup of coffee, and it is a good day! Hooray!
