Would you believe me if I told you this delicious, hearty warm bowl of oatmeal is gluten free, dairy free, sugar free AND packed with super foods?!
If you’ve been reading my How To Eat Healthily During Exams series, found here, here, here and here, you may have seen the banana bread oatmeal recipe, so I thought I’d do a post on it! This breakfast is just a superhero – Its so delicious and is so good for you! The chia seeds are packed with protein and fibre so keep you feeling full for ages and you can easily get a portion of fruit into it.
I also filmed a video here:
Banana Bread Oatmeal vegan, gluten free and dairy free
Oats (not the microwaveable kind)
1 tablespoon chia seeds (I use milled chia seeds from Linwoods)
Cinnamon, to taste
A few chopped up pecans and/or walnuts
Liquid of your choice, I used water, but feel free to use any milk
note: feel free to use any sweetener, but I feel its sweet enough if I use a ripe banana.
Put oats in a sauce pan with water just covering it and leave it for 10-15 minutes with a lid on so it soaks up the liquid.
While this is happening, mash 1/4 of the banana and slice the other quarter into slices.
One the oats have soaked up the liquid, put in the cinnamon, mashed banana and chia seeds.
Cook on low for about 5 minutes until chia seeds soak up the water and the oatmeal increases in volume.
Once it is done, serve it up in a bowl and top with banana slices and nuts.
Add any sweetener if liked.
