Meaghan Quinn, yoga teacher at EveryBodyFights, makes a variation of this Oh She Glows oatmeal all of the time. She skips a few ingredients and adapted it slightly. Get the delicious banana oatmeal recipe below and give it a try.
Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal
1 ripe banana, peeled and roughly chopped
1 tsp coconut oil or ghee
1/2 cup oatmeal (any kind)
1 tsp chia seeds
1 cup milk (Meaghan opts for plain, unsweetened almond milk)
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp nut butter
Optional: maple syrup, nuts, dried fruit or cacao nuts for topping
- In a small sauce pan, heat the oil or ghee over medium head. Cook the banana with the cinnamon for about 5 minutes or until it starts to brown.
- Add the oats, chia seeds, milk and another sprinkle of cinnamon. Bring to low boil then reduce to simmer. Stir and cook for about 5-10 minutes (depending on whether you are using quick-cook oats or not).
- Remove from heat, then add nut butter, maple syrup, nuts, cinnamon, etc!
Fight fuel tip: Make this your own! Customize with different fruit (apples or peaches) and be creative with toppings.
