Perfect Morning Oats

Pin It
Happy February!

There's going to be a lot of fun happening here this month and I can't wait to share
it with you!
I've team up with nine awesome food bloggers and some fabulous sponsors to bring you
Hot Breakfast Month.
We're calling it #HotforBreakfast and we will be sharing some of our favorite recipes and
wonderful products to help you start your day with a nice warm, hearty breakfast.
It is the most important meal of the day you know :)

The theme this week is "A Family Favorite".
If you are a regular around here or follow me on Instagram, you already know my
favorite hot breakfast.
Oatmeal!!!!
Easy, healthy microwave oatmeal




Oatmeal has been my favorite forever.
Baked, instant, overnight or cooked - it doesn't matter.
I love it all.
Today I will be sharing the oatmeal recipe I use most often.
It's quick, healthy and oh so good.
Perfect Morning Oats.



Begin by mashing one ripe banana into a microwave safe bowl.
Add 1/3 cup of rolled oats.
Bob's Red Mill is my favorite brand.























Pour 1/3 cup unsweetened Pacific Almond Milk over the oats.

Sprinkle with cinnamon and microwave for two minutes.
That's it!

Now the fun part begins when you add the toppings!
I always add fresh fruit, nut butter and chia or flax seed to my oatmeal.
Today I added Cashew Butter.
You should try it!
Woodstock Nut Butters are fabulous!
This was my first time trying cashew butter and it is quickly
becoming one of my favorites.  I love the mild, nutty flavor.
