Oatmeal has a justified reputation as a healthy staple of the breakfast table, but that doesn’t make this humble grain really palatable to some of us.

 

Let’s face it – plain oats are too boring to eat on a regular basis, and flavoured oats carry a bevy of excess sugars and other ingredients that don’t belong in your breakfast bowl.

 

So in order to make it more attractive (in taste) without the excessive sugar and artifical stuff, we use peanut butter and almonds to provide a rich base of healthy fats and bananas for natural sweetness and a shot of potassium.

 

Now this is the kind of oatmeal that you could and should eat 5 days a week!

 

The Ingredients

 

  • 4½ cups water
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • ¼ cup of chopped almonds
  • 2 tablespoons agave syrup

 

The Method

 

1. In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil.
2. Turn the heat down to low and add the oatmeal and salt.
3. Cook, stirring occasionalLy, for about 5 minmes, until the oats are tender and have absorbed most of the liquid.
4. Add the bananas, peanut butter, almonds, and agave syrup and stir to incorporate evenly. If the oatmeal is too thick, you can add a splash of milk.
