Bananas. Blueberries. Breakfast. Go!

Hi all. Happy upcoming Labor Day weekend! US Open Tennis has me hooked and here’s the recipe I promised earlier this week!

  My Mauer McNabb, revving up for the weekend. 

I may not be the world’s biggest banana fan, but I hate to toss the ones my men don’t want once the little brown spots appear.

Here is a hearty, easy, all natural and healthy breakfast that takes under five mintues to prepare–perfect for a school or work morning and one you can feel REALLY good about serving. Better yet: let the kids make their own whenever they can :))

Mash a ripe medium banana into a cereal bowl. Toss in a handful of blueberries (or fruit of choice) and (1/2 cup) uncooked old-fashioned oatmeal. Add milk, stir, eat.

The banana lends a tremendous amount of sweetness to the milk. (I use organic 1% skim). A little vanilla or even hazelnut creamer works too. Getting used to raw oatmeal takes a time or two, but great once you’re used to the texture. Enjoy!

    1. The raw oatmeal took a few tries but now I really enjoy it. I also get to eat longer, which means the brain can signal me being full on less. I mix it into cereal all the time–helps me cut sugar while still eating my favorite pre-sweetened varieties. Go for it! Let me know what you think. You can also heat the oatmeal and stir in the fruits afterward.

    1. Me too–so glad to see you here! Definitely a texture thing, and as I commented to Carrie, I can eat longer with less food. I love that this one is ALL natural. Thanks!
