This morning I made a heavenly concoction for breakfast and I feel I must share it. It's nothing fancy or even very creative, but it made my taste buds sing. Here ya go!
Banana's Foster Oatmeal
Bring 2 cups plain soy milk (or regular milk if you prefer)
to a gentle boil.
Add in 1 cup of whole oats (not the pansy quick cook kind - the less processed, the better!). I bought a gluten-free variety, but any whole grain oat will do.
Lower the heat and continue cooking 10-15 minutes until the oats are tender (taste test time!).
Make sure to stir every once in awhile!
Once the oatmeal was done, I divided it into two portions and put them in the refrigerator for breakfast the next morning.
In the morning it went a little something like this:
Pour a little more soy milk in since it tends to dry out a bit.
Throw a little brown sugar on top (looking for a better alternative since even brown sugar is so refined - ideas anyone?)
Cover that container back up, grab a banana and
run like mad to get to work on time.
Once at work, throw the container in the microwave
to heat it all back up. Give it a stir...
... and then the best part. Slice bananas to go on top and eat away!
It makes me want to have breakfast for dinner!
