I was hoping to get a post in last night after I got home from being with friends, but my internet was down. So, here I am Yesterday was an amazingly sunny day! Perfect for running. unfortunately, I didn’t run because I had to rush to get ready and go out right after class.
So, as I promised yesterday, today I’ll be showing you what I put into my morning oats.
1/3 cup oat bran
2-3 tbsp rolled oats
1 tsp amazing meal
~0.5 tsp protein powder : I use as much as a tbsp sometimes, but the one I have been using lately is quite sweet so I find I don’t need very much to get it to my liking
1 tbsp raisins
Stevia Sweet to taste (if I’m not using a sweetened protein powder)
1 small or medium/ half a large banana
Enough almond milk to cover your oats in the pot
Doesn’t that picture look delicious? Ha, not so much…
Personally, I put everything in the bowl (except the banana – but feel free to mash up half a banana and put it in! I also add pumpkin puree when I have it), bring it to a boil, then turn down the heat to a bit under Medium. I stir for a few minutes (until I get my desired consistency), and then transfer it onto a plate and spread it out evenly.
Next I cut up the banana and put it around the finished oats, and top it with dollops of pb (I use both DCD and regular PB). In the end it looks like this:
What I do after I take the pic is lightly use the back of my spoon to spread the pb dollops all over my oats
and that’s it ya’ll! Personally I think it’s super simple, and doesn’t take as long as I used to think oats would.
Now I’m off to make myself a nice bowl of these babies!
I wish you all a wonderful day!
QUESTION: Did anyone actually go out and celebrate st. patties? Personally, this was my first year.. it was never a big thing in my circle of friends!
