It is Spring after all, but this is North Iowa folks, we've been having the coldest winter on record almost. In fact it snowed this last Thursday and believe it or not, tomorrow the forecast for northwest Minnesota is... SNOW.
Yep, good old snow. Not a sprinkling either, up to a foot. Yeah, you read that right, 12 inches deep.
So... I am going to make sure I make this for breakfast, because when it's cold, this is the perfect way to start your day. Right?!
This hearty oatmeal is chock full of bananas, chia seeds for protein, drizzled in agave syrup or maple for sweetness. Top with more banana slices, even some nuts, you won't want to ever make another packet that instant glop again.
This ain't oatmeal for sissy's.
The chia seeds plump up after cooking almost like tapioca.
Of course when your family is eating this awesome oatmeal they won't care one lick about all the good nutrients they're getting.
But you'll know. and that's all that is important, right?
