Confession: Yesterday I didn’t make a recipe like I’m supposed to for my weekly challenge…it was a long day at work and I didn’t eat lunch or dinner at home so there wasn’t much time to make anything.
The good news: This morning I had a delicious breakfast planned.
While looking through Averie’s recipes, I stumbled upon the Microwave Blueberry Banana Oat Cakes. It looked easy, quick, and packed with fruit. Which I love.
In The Mix:
1 mashed banana
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
a whole bunch of cinnamon
couple handfuls of fresh blueberries
dash of vanilla extract
This was done in about 6 minutes including mixing & microwaving. You could shave off a couple minutes by mixing all of the ingredients together the night before and microwaving it in the morning. I also topped it off with a plop of peanut butter. It was a little too sweet for me, but that was because I added too much brown sugar for my taste. I loved how quick & easy it was, and flexible! You could add any number of mix-ins or toppings. Oh…and…it’s blue!!! I love when my foods turn out crazy colors. It’s so fun!
For lunch I packed a Chocolate Chip Clif Bar, a green apple and a leftover piece of cheese pizza. I have eaten way too much pizza the past couple weeks but I love it! Really, is too much pizza even possible?
