I still make smoothies in the winter, but I had to take a little break from them because I was craving something warm in the morning! So I whipped up some of my protein oatmeal, but with a cozy and delicious twist 🙂
I give you “Cinnamon Roll Protein Oatmeal” topped with caramelized banana, pecans, peanut butter and hemp seeds
•Combine 1/3 cups of organic rolled oats with a scoop of Tone it Up cinnamon roll protein powder and 1/2 cup of water.
•Put in microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds
•Stir in a scoop of chia + flax seeds (optional, but adds more fiber/nutrients) and a little almond milk + cinnamon
Topped it with the bananas, pecans, hemp seed and peanut butter!
I’m not sure WHY I have never put caramelized bananas on top of my oatmeal, but it is a total game changer!! It really made the whole dish so creamy and added that perfect sweetness!
All I did was put slices of banana in a pan with coconut oil and cinnamon and cooked until crisp on both sides.
This oatmeal bowl kept me full and satisfied until lunch because it has protein, fiber, complex carbs and healthy fats- the perfect way to start the day!
