Banana Bread/Carrot Cake Oatmeal

IMG-20160306-WA0001

I had full intentions of making banana bread oatmeal this morning, but after getting samples of carrot cake in the market yesterday, I went rogue and combined the two. The final product is so delicious! As with any oats recipe, it’s not rocket science – feel free to add/subtract anything that you do or don’t like and I promise you it’ll turn out just fine!

Here’s how you make it (2 large servings):

  1. Mash 2 small bananas (or 1 large) in a bowl – set aside
  2. Combine 2 cups unsweetened almond milk, 1 cup oats, 2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, dash of vanilla, 1 small grated carrot and 2 tbsp raisins in a pot – turn on high heat until it’s boiling and then reduce to low heat
  3. Add the mashed bananas, 2 tbsp chia seeds and 2 tbsp maple syrup and cook on low heat for 3-5 minutes until it’s extra thick
  4. Split into 2 bowls and enjoy with the toppings of your choice!

Ingredients:

  • 2 small (or 1 large) banana
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup oats
  •  2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • dash vanilla
  • 1 small carrot
  • 2 tbsp raisins
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

Optional Toppings:

  • nut butter
  • pecans or walnuts
  • maple syrup
  • greek yogurt
  • cinnamon

Hope you have a perfect Sunday – it’s sunny here!!
