There’s not much you can’t accomplish when you start your day with a well-balanced breakfast like these quick oats with almond butter, jam, and banana. Almond milk is such a great lactose alternative, especially in this dish, where it lends a creamy nutty flavour.
Oatmeal with Almond Butter, Blueberry Jam, and Banana
1 1/2 cup quick oats
3 cups water
1 tsp vanilla
1 spoonful almond butter
1 spoonful sugar-free blueberry jam
In a medium pot, add a pinch of salt to three cups water and boil. When boiling, add oats and stir, turning heat down to medium. Cook until oatmeal has a thick consistency. Stir in vanilla. Chop up banana in the bottom of your bowl, top with oatmeal and a scoop of almond butter and jam ( I used blueberry). Top with banana slices and almond milk.
Best enjoyed with the morning paper and a cup of coffee.
