1 ripe banana, mashed
2 tbsp. chia seeds
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
2/3 cup almond milk
1/3 cup water
1 tbsp. ground flax (optional)
Toppings: almonds, pumpkin seeds, hemp hearts, cinnamon, toasted coconut, nut butter, cinnamon
The night before: Grab a medium bowl and mash the banana until smooth. Now stir in the chia, oats, cinnamon, milk, and water until combined. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning: Scoop the oat mixture into a medium pot. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat immediately to medium-low, and stir frequently until heated throughout and thickened. At the end of cooking, stir in flax (optional).
Pour oats into bowl. Garnish with your desired toppings. Get cozy!
Makes 1 serving
Notes: The ground flax is optional because it creates a bit of a strange texture in this oatmeal. So if you think you won’t like it, just leave it out or sprinkle some ground flax on top instead.
