Quick Breakfasts

5 MINUTE BANANA OATMEAL

It’s getting dreary and slightly chilly here in Toronto and I’ve been craving oatmeal. Last winter I think I had oatmeal nearly 4 morning a week. It’s quick and warm and filling! Oh, also taste good! Anyways, this is something new I tried this week. I had a banana lying around and was honestly craving banana pudding but this was good alternative. The best part is that you don’t need to add a sweetener to your oats because the banana is sweet enough.

Hope you guys enjoy!

Ingredients (1 serving)

1/3 cup oats

1/3 cup water

1 tsp cacao powder

1 banana

Cinnamon to taste

 

Directions

1)    Mix oats and water in a small saucepan over medium heat.

2)    Add in cacoa powder. Stir well to ensure there are no clumps.

3)    Mash 1 banana and add to pan. Mix well.

4)    Sprinkle cinnamon on top.

5)    Add topping of choice!

BANANA MATCHA PANCAKES

I love making these cause they are super-fast, don’t require a lot of ingredients, and doesn’t use a lot of dishes. All things I look for while making breakfast! You can always take out the Matcha if you aren’t feeling it. You could replace it with protein powder, cacao powder, or nothing at all. Get creative, use whatever you have around and enjoy!

I added a layer of jam and peanut butter between my pancakes and topped it with some peach slices. Drizzled a bit of agave syrup and sprinkled some more cinnamon on top (Can never have too much cinnamon!). My toppings always change depending on what I have around.
