Hello friends, I hope you all had a great Friday night and are having a fantabulous start to your weekend :)
Bring on the Anna Banana jokes.
Funny story, my elementary school principal used to jokingly call me ‘Anna Banana’ until one day I finally decided that I had enough of the nickname and proceeded to cry until she promised never to call me that again.
I’ve since gotten over my hatred of bananas...although I don’t think I’ve ever warmed up to the nickname ;)
My parents used to make oatmeal for me almost every morning when I lived at home, to the point that I think I had a bit of an oatmeal overdose. Also, no offense to my darling parents, but they kind of made lame oatmeal. The kind that you need to douse in brown sugar and milk to eat.
About a year ago, I found a recipe that made me want to rekindle my oatmeal love affair. And it involved bananas. Go figure.
I now make a batch of this banana-based oatmeal once a week, which gives me around 3 breakfasts-worth of oatmeal. I mix up the ingredients every once in a while, and it never gets old! I now never have to drown my oatmeal in milk and sugar, since I make it with milk (instead of only water, yawn) and add some vanilla and cinnamon to give it some sweetness, along with the bananas and sometimes some berries.
Ground flax seed
I added sunflower seeds this time to add some crunch!
Try it out! Embrace oatmeal! Join the ‘oatmeal is delicious, not mush’ bandwagon :)
