I have really been in the mood for hearty (carb-y) breakfasts lately. Well, I’m always in the mood for big hearty breakfasts, who am I kidding. And when I saw this recipe from Jessica at How Sweet It Is, I needed it in my life immediately. Her version is made with eggnog, but I’m not really a fan of the nog, so I changed it to the boring old standby, blueberry. But, we all know that you can never go wrong with the bluebs.
OH AND, I totally copied her and also put caramelized bananas on top. I caramelized them a little bit differently, but still, Jessica knows how to get crazy, and I thought I’d follow her lead.
On a side note: I DIE when I read Jess’s blog. Everyday. For real, she’s legit, and so are her recipes. I’m refraining from being a stalker.
Okay, back to the oatmeal…
This is a really healthy, filling breakfast that you can throw together in a snap and eat for a few days. Low in sugar, high in fiber and healthy fats. It will definitely give you energy and keep you full for hours.
Now, you could always leave off the bananas. But don’t be crazy (like my husband), you won’t regret the caramel-y goodness that will smother your oats.
This is perfect with a big cup of coffee on cold mornings.
