Morning Layered Oats
This is my current breakfast obsession. Like eating-it-every-day obsession.
Except for this morning. Mr B was home and made me a tasty breakfast, err an early brunch, of hash browns, sausage patties, and (his favorite) French toast. All I had to do was brew the coffee.
He does spoil me so.
Anyhoo, back to my latest bowl of oats, which I'll probably have tomorrow because I work the early shift, and although Mr. B is off, I doubt he'll happily get up at a dark 6:30 to make me another tasty breakfast.
But these oats. These oats are quite simple. It's just my favorite yummy breakfast: oatmeal with whatever fits my fancy. Lately, it's been bananas. I go through phases with bananas. I can eat them every day, with nut butter or in a smoothie, for days. And then I want nothing to do with them for weeks. But I still buy them. And after watching them go bad as my husband tries to finish them off, he'll ask if I don't like bananas any more. (Btw, I can't stand to see any brown on my banana; once it develops a brown spot, no way am I eating that. The greener the better.) And then a few days later I can't get enough of them and put them on everything, like this oatmeal. every. day.
1/3 c cooked rolled oats
here is where I'd normally layer on a spoonful of plain Greek yogurt <--- why I'm not doing that currently I'll explain in a whole other post soon :(
1 T chia seeds
splash of unsweetened almond milk (usually I add enough to surround my oatmeal)
dash of ground cinnamon
handful of fresh berries
1/2 banana, sliced
drizzle of raw almond butter
In a bowl add ingredients layer by layer making it nice and pretty. Enjoy!
Eat it as is, pretty layers on each spoonful, or get crazy and mix it all up. It's quite simple.
With Love and God Bless,
