I did something last night that I have been wanting to do for so long.
Brian had his meal from the hot food bar, I got mine from the cold food bar. I built a large salad of romaine, spinach, tofu, roasted edamame, red onion, green onion, roasted garlic, and cucumber. It was absolutely delicious and totally worth the arm and the leg that it cost!
Today is a pretty special day. It is National Banana Bread Day! In honor of this American Foodie Holiday I decided to get creative with my oats this morning to replicate the delicious flavors of banana bread. Boy, was I successful!
These oats had a nutty flavor from ground flaxseed, were silky smooth, and very satisfying. I can’t wait to make them again
Banana Bread Oats
Yields: 1 Serving
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 cup water
- 1/3-1/2 cup egg whites
- 1 Tbsp ground flax seed
- 10 drops of vanilla liquid stevia (or a packet of stevia with a dash of vanilla extract)
- a small splash of nut and butter extract
- a sprinkle of cinnamon
- 2/3 chopped, frozen banana
- 1-2 Tbsp chopped pecans
In a large, microwave safe bowl (too big to eat the oats out of) place the oats and water. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Next, add in the egg whites, flax seed, stevia, nut and butter extract, and cinnamon. Stir to thoroughly combine. Microwave for 2 more minutes. Finally, add in the banana and microwave for 1 more minute. Pour this mixture into a smaller bowl to serve and top with pecans. ENJOY!
