Here’s one for all you healthy eaters out there who simultaneously don’t want to give up delicious comfort food. This dish is gluten-free, lactose-free, sugar-free, filling and delightful. Optional add-ins include peanut butter, sunflower butter, honey, chocolate chips, you name it. Hearty, so yummy, lightly sweet yet healthy. Enjoy!!
This recipe serves 2-3 people.
1 cup of old fashioned oats (I use gluten-free)
1 banana, sliced (save a few for topping)
2 tablespoons of chia seeds
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
3 cups of non dairy milk (I use coconut milk) or water, or a combination of both
2 tablespoons of sunflower butter, or another type of nut butter
- Add oats, banana, chia seeds, cinnamon and milk/water to medium sized saucepan.
- Stir well to combine.
- Heat over medium heat, stirring frequently, for 8-10 minutes. Until all liquid has been absorbed and oats have taken on a somewhat fluffy, moist appearance. Be sure to stir often while cooking so chia seeds don’t clump and everything mixes together well.
- When finished cooking, portion into two bowls. Top with additional banana, a drizzle of sunflower butter, and any other toppings you might like (honey or maple syrup would also be super yummy).
Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days ish. Reheat prior to enjoying more.
