This is one of my favorite breakfasts – it’s delicious, healthy and it stays with you well into the day. It also has an exotic, tropical flare with the banana and coconut. This recipe doubles well.
1/2 cup quick oats
3/4 cup milk
1/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
1 tsp agave syrup (or brown sugar, maple syrup)
1 sliced banana (or 1/2 apple, sliced)
Optional: shredded coconut, chia seeds
1) Stir quick oats and milk together in a small saucepan and place on medium heat – stir frequently as it heats and bubbles (for about 3-4 min, or until consistency has gone from watery to clumpy)
2) Add cinnamon and nutmeg, stirring well
3) Remove from heat and stir in sweetener of your choice
4) Place banana slices in bowl and pour oatmeal overtop – sprinkle with shredded coconut and chia seeds if you like.
