Breakfast For Two
As you all should know by now, Mr. G and I are participating in a fitness challenge and as a result of that we're eating healthier these days. Eight more days to be exact. I realized after the first week that if I was going to survive this thing I was going to have to stray a little from meal plans. Once again pinterest saves the day... I am a huge Pinterest fan and anyone who says they dislike it a) doesn't have one or b) doesn't "get it". It's such a great way to bookmark all kinds of ideas and I am constantly finding new, great recipes! Just like this one that I found on vegan blog of all places. All the ingredients we already had thanks to the trainers' meal suggestions... Well other than the gluten-free oats, but I don't have celiacs disease or cleverly disguised anorexia so I subbed regular ol' oats.
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup gluten-free oats
- 1 banana
- 1 tbsp almond butter
Heat the almond milk on high on your stove top, as soon as it begins to boil immediately add your oats to the pot. Reduce the heat and sprinkle the mixture with cinnamon. I gave the bottle 4 shakes, but I think next time I'll add some more. Continue stirring until you've reached the desired thickness. I prefer mine to be a little bit more on the runny side. Split the oats into two bowls, slice half the banana into each bowl and top with a small scoop of almond butter. So simple, but soooo delicious!
