Yum! After a tough workout this morning I decided to treat myself with a well-deserved delicious breakfast. Lately, I've been on an oatmeal kick so I decided to put together some of my favorite ingredients (banana, chocolate and peanut butter) into one delicious combo! This recipe takes minutes to make and tastes like a total treat, despite all of its healthy goodness! Try it out and let me know what you think in the comments below!
Chunky Monkey Morning Oats
Time: 5 Minutes
1 Cup water
1/4 Cup old fashioned oats
1/2 Ripe banana, peeled and sliced
1/2 Tablespoon of chia seeds
1/2 Tablespoon of peanut butter
1 Teaspoon honey, agave, maple syrup or coconut sugar
1/2 Tablespoon chocolate chips
1.) Place the water, oats, banana, chia seeds and peanut butter in a small pot and bring to a boil. Once the mixture begins to boil, bring to low heat and stir.
2.) Add in the teaspoon of sweetener and continue to stir, until the oatmeal has a creamy consistency.
3.) Remove the oatmeal from the heat and transfer into a small bowl. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and other half of banana, if desired.
