Good morning! And happy F*ck Calories Friday to any of you who will be celebrating the holiday today!! (That, my friends, is a real Good Friday.) I’m assuming many of you are reading this from bed and not your desk, so I thought I’d share a good recipe for your morning out of the office.
A few weeks ago, I discovered dried blueberries and set out on a mission to create a bowl of oatmeal that was something like a blueberry muffin. And oh yeah…I did it.
- 3/4 cup dry oatmeal, prepared in 1 cup + 1 tbsp of water
Once the oatmeal is prepared to your level of chew, add…
- 1 fronana, thawed (you can thaw it in the microwave, if necessary)
- 2 tbsp dried blueberries
- 1 tbsp milk
- 1 tbsp macadamia nuts
- 1/2 tbsp butterscotch
- 1 tsp white chocolate chips
- 1 tsp brown sugar
So great! The thawed frozen banana is the way to go; it really gives the whole bowl of oatmeal a nice, authentic banana flavor. And dried blueberries are so great! Despite being dried, they are really juicy and seem to burst with flavor. The macadamia nuts were a good way to mix it up, but I’ve also made it with walnuts, and that was pretty baller too.
Pimpin’ ain’t easy…except when it comes to whole grains!
