Oh, sweet Sunday, thank you for being here again. Time for some planning and resetting for the new week and just chilling.
I hope you’re off to a pleasant day and getting caught up as well. This past weekend was fairly busy for me because we did some entertaining for me which go me in the kitchen more than what’s been usual recently. Lots and lots of cooking (and dishes) but I must say I enjoyed it all because it’s been a while since I’ve cooked for so many and it used to be a normal part of my week.
Here’s the recipe for this really easy pb banana oatmeal.
Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal
- 1 cup water
- 40 g 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 cup milk of choice
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- 1 medium banana divided
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon optional
- 1 1/2 tablespoons powdered peanut butter or regular if preferred
- 1 -2 tablespoons sweetener of choice or to taste (honey, maple, agave, or stevia)
- 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- peanut butter
- chopped pecans or any nuts
Mash half of the banana in a small saucepan. Add the salt and water and place over medium high heat on stovetop. Bring to a gentle boil and add in the oats, chia seeds, and milk then reduce heat to low and and cover for about 8 - 10 minutes until the liquid is absorbed.
Add the powdered peanut butter (or regular pb), cinnamon, and sweetener and stir until mixed. Scrape into a bowl for serving and top with the other half of the banana, sliced, a spoonful of peanut butter, and any other desired toppings.
