With this quick and healthful meal, it’s time to say goodbye to those instant, flavored oats.
Although oatmeal has a well-deserved reputation as a healthy morning staple, this little grain is not flawless. The issue is that flavored oats contain various extra sugars and other substances that don’t belong in your morning bowl and plain oats are too dull to consume frequently. Therefore, the instant oatmeal packets you believe are a good breakfast choice are not actually improving your health and may even be harming it more than you realize.
Using peanut butter and almonds to provide a strong base of healthy fats and bananas for natural sweetness and an injection of potassium, we are able to tackle both issues. You should and could consume this kind of oatmeal five days a week.
You don’t want to lose out on the many advantages of eating oatmeal in its most natural form. Oats should be consumed regularly, of course, in the proper manner, as they have several health benefits, including lowering LDL cholesterol (the wrong sort of cholesterol) and being one of the best sources of resistant starch—the kind of carb that aids in weight loss.
Because it contains healthy ingredients, we adore this peanut butter and banana oatmeal recipe. It creates a nutritious breakfast that you can prepare quickly.
Bring the water to a rolling boil in a medium saucepan. Add the oatmeal and salt after lowering the heat to low. Cook for approximately 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the oats are soft and have absorbed the majority of the liquid.
Stir to thoroughly distribute the bananas, peanut butter, almonds, and agave syrup. Add a little milk if the oatmeal is too thick.
Although peanut butter and banana may be our favorite oatmeal topping, there are dozens of other options, some of which are unexpected (thanks to Mark Bittman, who was the first to introduce us to the concept of savory oatmeal).
