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.
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.
almond milk

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.

Pretty oatmeal tastes even better :)
