Who doesn’t love a warm bowl of oatmeal and a hot cup of coffee in the morning?  Oatmeal is one of my go to breakfasts because it is filling and nutritious.  I decided to change my routine up a bit and go with something a little more decadent.  All though this looks totally bad for you, it is actually made with healthy ingredients!  Here is how I made it:

First, have all of your ingredients prepped and ready because trust me, this process goes REALLY FAST!  Go ahead and have your oatmeal prepared and ready to be topped.

What you need:

~1/2 of a sliced banana

~cinnamon and coconut sugar

~coconut oil ( I used refined coconut oil)

~About a tablespoon of raw walnuts

~pinch of salt

~1/2 Cup of Oats

~Water ( I just fill right above the oats)

Have your bowl of oatmeal ready.  I used Quaker Oats and made them in the microwave with water.

Start out by adding about a teaspoon of coconut oil to the pan.  Let your pan get hot, this is important because your bananas will get really soggy if you put them in too early.  Cook for about 30-45 seconds, then add a sprinkle of cinnamon, a pinch of salt and your coconut sugar last.  I like coconut sugar because it brings a “caramel like” taste to the bananas.  Once you add the coconut sugar, stir for about 5-10 seconds then take off the heat.  Add your walnuts to the mixture and stir gently.

Here is your topping when it is complete!  All you have to do now is top your oats.  You can add some almond milk and extra walnuts to the oats if you like as well.
