Hello Fit Foodie Finds peeps! Kelsey here from Ready Set Feast and I’m so excited to be doing a guest post for Lee while she’s spring breakin it!
So. Let’s get serious for a moment. I have an addiction, a serious addiction that I simply cannot stop no matter how hard I try. I am addicted to oatmeal. There. I said it out loud. I eat oatmeal for breakfast every morning, sometimes for lunch, sometimes for dinner, sometimes for a snack but even worse, sometimes for every single meal of the day. Obsessed much? Since I refuse to seek help for my addiction I figured I would spread it instead. One of the reason’s why I love Lee’s blog so much is because she’s a fellow oatmeal addict and I’m constantly on the lookout for new ways to enjoy my favorite food.
After having tried many many oatmeal recipes in my day, I can honestly say the one I am about to share with you is my absolute favorite. Every time I eat this I literally drool while I eat and think omgineedmoreofthisrightnow. So do yourself a favor and make this for breakfast, then again for lunch and again for dinner. Then tell me, so we can be BFF’s and eat this in a corner together.
Coconut and Caramelized Banana Bowl of Deliciousness
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats (don’t skimp on this, get the old fashioned kind!)
- 1 cup of almond milk
- 1 small banana
- 1.5 tablespoons brown sugar
- drizzle honey (about 1 teaspoon or so)
- 1 teaspoon coconut butter
- small handful of raisins
- pinch of nutmeg
1. Bring the almond milk to a boil, stir in oatmeal and turn down heat to medium-low. Let oatmeal cook for 5-6 minutes stirring constantly till they have soaked up all the almond milk juicyness.
2. While oats are cooking, add brown sugar and honey to a small saucepan and place over medium-low heat. The brown sugar and honey should begin to melt making it liquidy (sometimes I’ll add a little splash of water or almond milk or margarine to help this along).
3. Slice the banana into the pot and let all cook for 1-2 minutes until everything is melted.
4. Once oatmeal is done, place in a bowl and mix in raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg and coconut butter. Top with the caramelized banana mixture. Eat and repeat!
What is your favorite oatmeal concoction?
