Often the simplest meals are the most satisfying. Sure, I love sushi or a perfectly seared beef fillet. But I look forward to pb&j or a grilled cheese sandwich just as much. These comfort foods never grow old. And that's how I feel about a warm bowl of oatmeal. My favorite way to prepare it includes a spoonful of peanut butter (or almond butter) and a sliced banana. And I usually top it off with a drizzle of honey. A hearty, healthy way to begin (or end) any day.
Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup water
1 Tbsp. peanut butter (or almond butter)
1 ripe banana, sliced
drizzle of honey (optional)
1. Combine oatmeal, water, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan or microwave-safe bowl and cook according to package directions.
2. When oatmeal is done, stir in peanut butter and sliced bananas. Serve with a drizzle of honey (optional).
