The best part of waking up....

... no, no, no! It's not what you're thinking. The best part is breakfast! :)

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
(2 servings)

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!

  1. That looks good! Have you tried agave? It's a syrup--and it's a good natural sweetener. You can get it at the Nug. :)


Please leave me feedback and/or comments - they are much appreciated!
