I love the weekends… especially when I have no plans that I need to wake up for. Lazy fall Saturdays are the best. I started off my morning right with some decaf Irish breakfast tea and the last of my pre-made banana oats. In honor of the beautiful fall day I made my Spiced Apple Oats.
- 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup water, 1/3 cup skim milk
- 1/2 medium banana, finely sliced
- vanilla rice milk for rehydration
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- dash nutmeg
- dash ginger
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup chopped gala apples; microwaved 2 minutes
- spoonful ZAP natural PB on the side
I follow Kath’s method for preparing my oats… I pour the milk, oats and water into a saucepan over medium heat. Add the spices and vanilla to to pan. Slice a banana into VERY thin pieces, leaving just a few bigger chunks. As the oatmeal heats, stir vigorously at times to “whip” the banana into the oats. I stir in about 1/4 cup of the cooked apples and reserve the other half for pouring on top of the cooked oats. The oats will take 5-7 minutes on medium heat to fully absorb the liquid. They’re done when they reach your desired consistency!
We’re off to go walk though Central Park and enjoy the day. Cheers!
