Peanut Butter Oats

Woke up this morning wanting something different than my usual scrambled eggs and avocado slices. I had bananas and oats, and I decided to add a little peanut butter for the most perfect, creamy, healthy, and filling breakfast.

For oatmeal:
1 cup unsweetened nut milk
1/2 cup oats of your choice (I used Bob’s Red Mill old fashioned rolled oats)
1 T organic maple syrup
1/4 tsp cinnamon 
1/8 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp chia seeds

For topping:
1/2 tsp coconut oil (melted) and 1 T peanut butter mixed together
One banana, sliced

Instructions: Add milk to small pot and bring to a boil. Add oats, and lower heat to medium-low. Cook until milk has mostly absorbed (about 10 minutes), stirring occasionally. Take off heat and add other ingredients and stir thoroughly. Add toppings and enjoy!

*You could also put oatmeal ingredients in a covered mason jar and let sit in your fridge overnight and add toppings in the morning to save time. Also, Bob’s Red Mill also comes in #glutenfree varieties!
