Breakfast Peanut Butter Banana Chia Seeds Oats
These Breakfast Peanut Butter Banana Chia Seeds Oats are the ultimate bowl of goodness! Packed with bold flavor, these oats are not only made with vegan ingredients, but they can be whipped together in just a few short minutes or made overnight for easy meal prep.
Servings 2 bowls
- 1 cup organic rolled oats (I use Bob's Red Mill; For GF option, use GF oats!)
- 1 medium banana, mashed
- 2 cups Almond milk (You can use your fave plant-based milk!)
- pinch of sea salt
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp ground ginger
- 1 Tbsp chia seeds + 1 Tbsp!
- 2 Tbsps organic peanut butter (I use Justin's)
- 2-3 Tbsps pure maple syrup (See Notes!)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Blueberries, optional
- chopped pecans, optional
- sliced bananas
Now for this recipe–simply cook the rolled oats in small pot along with the Almond milk, chia seeds, mashed bananas, peanut butter, and sea salt on medium-high heat, stirring frequently until it comes to a boil.
Once oats have swelled and cooked through, turn the heat on low and stir in the maple syrup, vanilla extract, ground ginger, and cinnamon. Continue stirring for another minute or so and remove from heat.
To assemble, place oatmeal in serving bowl and top with sliced bananas, chopped pecans, blueberries, chia seeds..... That’s it!
STORAGE: Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Perfect for meal prep for the week!
OVERNIGHT OPTION: Simply add all oatmeal ingredients to a bowl and mix together until combined. Tightly cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight (or at least 8 hours). Once ready to serve, add toppings.
SWEETENER: Instead of maple syrup, you can simply use date syrup or Agave as a sweetener.
