Banana Oats without the banana is like PB&J minus the jelly.
I woke up to a banana peel sitting on the counter. The banana that I “oh so sneakily” hid in the cabinet (behind the bread, next to the croutons) last night, knowing that we were low on on these yellow beauties. Apparently, I wasn’t clever enough because my oats this mornin’ were banana-less.
-3T rolled oats
-3T oat bran
-1T carob powder
-1/2 Packet Starbucks instant coffee
-half water half almond milk
-Toppings: 1T peanut flour sauce, raisins, and carob cashew nut butter
Alright so, even though this wasn’t comparable to my sweet and savory banana oats, it was a nice twist! Surprisingly, it actually tasted like a Mocha! I’m glad I used almond milk because it gave it a little extra sweetness.
Lunch today was boring. A big salad topped with sliced cucumber, yellow tomatoes, 1% cottage cheese, turkey, dried cranberries, and balsamic vinegar.
