Well, the new year has begun! Wahooo for 2015! Many people set a new year’s resolution that entails something along the lines of getting fit, losing weight, eating clean, etc., etc. With that being said, I thought this was the PERFECT time to share the PERFECT, HEALTHY, and YUMMY-est oatmeal ever! I have been eating this all winter break and I am still not sick of it. Not only will this help you shed those pounds and eat clean, but it is so warm that it will curb the cravings you have for comfort food during these bitterly cold winter months. You MUST try this out. It has only 5 ingredients so it is easy-peasy!
Ingredients: (to make 1 serving)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup of old fashioned raw oats
1 teaspoon brown sugar
4-5 raw shelled walnuts
Cut the banana into small quarter sized slices. Boil the water on the stovetop. Add the oats, stirring immediately. Turn down the heat to low right away. Allow it to simmer with the lid on until the water is soaked up, stirring occasionally. Add 1/2 of the banana and a few walnuts to the oats. Sprinkle on the brown sugar and stir it up! Vwa-la- Yummo!
