Here’s your guide to the perfect bowl of oats… without dirtying a single pot or pan!
If you think you don’t like oatmeal (or think you don’t like anything besides sugary instant oatmeal), give this a try. The banana is the key. I promise you’ll love it!
- 1 ripe banana, sliced
- 1/2 C (overflowing) rolled oats
- 1/2 C (overflowing) skim milk (or dairy substitute)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Toppings as desired (berries, brown sugar, flax, coconut, nut butter, yogurt, cottage cheese, etc.)
First, slice a ripe banana into a microwave safe bowl. The super ripe banana is the key to oatmeal — it makes it nice and sweet (the riper the banana, the sweeter it is!) and gives it a fun texture!
Top the banana with the oats, milk, and cinnamon. I never make my oatmeal using water. Milk makes it SO MUCH TASTIER!
Pop the bowl into the microwave and heat on high for 3 minutes, stopping once halfway through to stir.
Once it’s out, add desired toppings and enjoy!
