Banana Chia Oatmeal

Hi all,

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.

Ingredients

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

  1. Add oats, banana, chia seeds, cinnamon and milk/water to medium sized saucepan.
  2. Stir well to combine.
  3. 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.
  4. 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).
  5. Enjoy!

Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days ish.  Reheat prior to enjoying more.
