 Peanut Butter Banana Chia Oatmeal

Ingredients:

  • rolled oats – old fashioned rolled oats are best for this recipe
  • banana
  • chia seeds
  • cinnamon
  • sea salt
  • water – you can also use non-dairy milk or a blend of both
  • peanut butter or another type of nut butter

Instructions: Add oats, banana slices, chia seeds, cinnamon and sea salt to a pot. Add water and stir to combine. Heat over medium-high heat for 8-10 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed. Be sure to stir the oats several times while cooking to make sure the banana slices melt into the oats and the chia seeds don’t clump. You’ll know the oatmeal is done when all the liquid is absorbed and the oats are thick and fluffy. Portion oats into two bowls and serve with peanut butter, banana slices, and a sprinkle of chia seeds. Add a splash of non-dairy milk and/or maple syrup on top before serving, if desired.
