Honey Maple Banana Oatmeal
1 cup water
1 cup almond or coconut milk
1/4 cup honey (get the real stuff!)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1-2 tsp vanilla extract (to taste)
2 tsp almond extract (to taste)
cinnamon (to taste)
This recipe is super simple. Place the ingredients in a blender and puree it until smooth. Then, store it in the refrigerator until morning. Is that it? Yup!
In the Morning...
The amount above will make about one week’s worth of puree. Right before you want to make your oatmeal in the morning, shake the puree to make it homogenous (it will separate a bit over night). Then measure out twice as much puree for the amount of oatmeal. So, for example:
1/2 cup puree + 1/4 cup oats -- OR -- 2/3 cup puree + 1/3 cup oats
After mixing the oats with the puree, microwave it for 1-1.5 minutes. You now have perfect, sweet oatmeal with natural ingredients. No processed stuff! Yum!
If you don't mind mushy oats, you can combine the oats and puree when you make it, but I prefer to wait until morning so the oats do not get soggy! Smaller oats also work better.
