It's what's for breakfast. Every person out there attempting to shed some pounds or to live healthy, knows how good oatmeal is for them.
it's a whole grain.
it's a good source of soluble fiber.
it keeps you fuller longer.
it contains good vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
But, seriously, the taste?
A little "lack luster" don't you think?
Now a days, I think of oatmeal as a blank canvas that I can add a ton of color (flavor) too! Let's kick that oatmeal up a notch together!
Banana Nut Oatmeal
1 serving of oatmeal
Margarine or Butter
Whipped Cream (optional garnish)
METHOD: Cook oatmeal per box instructions (I prefer to use milk over water as my liquid). Add a tsp of your favorite Light (or full fat) Butter or Margarine and 2 tsp of brown sugar. Mix. Add in 1/2 to 1 sliced banana and mix. Top with 1 tbsp of chopped nuts and a dollop of whipped cream to garnish!
