Chunky Monkey Oatmeal

Just read on...


Ingredients:
Makes 2 servings
  • 1/2 cup gluten free oats, (I suggest either old fashioned or quick cooking.)
  • 1 banana, (no green on the peel please!)
  • 1-1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup raw walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
Directions:
  • Pour 1 cup almond milk, raisins, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a pot over the stove on high heat. Bring to a boil.
  • Add in oats, and reduce heat to low. 
  • Stir twice and allow oats to cook for several minutes. (The amount of time depends on the type of oats you use. Old Fashioned will take about 7-8 minutes, while Quick Cooking only takes about 2 or 3 minutes.)
  • Chop up banana, and add to oatmeal.
  • Add in remaining 1/4 cup almond milk, cover pot, and allow to sit over low heat for 1 minute.
  • Add in maple syrup, and stir/mash the mixture so the banana becomes chunky but mushy.
  • Finally, add in the walnuts, stir, turn heat off, and allow to sit covered for 3 minutes.

  • Serve warm. mmmmm!!! Literally. mmmmm!!!!!
(I just noticed my Brita is in the background of most of these photos LOL. Yay environment.) Go breakfast go!!
