Is it Friday yet?
I probably wouldn’t have been eating a big bowl of oatmeal for dinner last night if it was.
Yup, my energy for the week has officially expired. Lucky for me oatmeal is a quick, nutritious and filling meal. Not to mention it’s one of my favourite comfort foods. Chewy, creamy, warm and full of whatever flavour you desire, oatmeal is my kind of food. And my kind of flavour today was a combination of sweet and sweeter.
Banana Cherry Oatmeal
The perfect meal, any day, any time!
- 3 tbsp steel cut oats
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 tsp cashew butter
- 1 tbsp ground flax seeds
- 1/2 medium banana, sliced
- 1-2 tbsp dried cherries
- optional- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
