banana split oatmeal

Made banana split oatmeal (via Rachel Wilkerson), using milk instead of water. I also microwaved the oats and accidentally mixed up the order of things so the texture was off, but after re-reading the recipe I know what to correct.

No picture today because I chomped it down so was delish!

1/2 cup oatmeal, dry
1 cup water
1/2 banana, sliced
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 tbsp peanut butter
1/2 tbsp walnuts or peanuts
1/2 tbsp dark chocolate chips
Optional: dollop of yogurt for “whipped cream”

Bring the water to a boil and add the oats. Cook on low, stirring occasionally, until the oats have reached your desired consistency.

While the oats are cooking, place the frozen strawberries in the microwave and heat for about a minute and 15 seconds, until they are warm and mushy. Roughly slice.

Stir the peanut butter into the warm oatmeal and place in bowl. Top with banana, strawberries, chocolate, and nuts.
