I love the combination of Peanut Butter, Bananas and Honey. When I was little my Mom would combine the three for me in a sandwich, so this combo is one of those nostalgic meals that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy and bring me back to an easier time in my life.
In my quest for new metabolism boosting meals I came up with this little number. Almonds boost metabolism so I swapped out peanut butter for almond butter and milk for almond milk, oatmeal is also a big metabolism booster so that makes three ingredients that boost metabolism.
I came across an Almond Butter with Flax Seed yesterday at Trader Joe’s, usually I prefer a “No Stir” Almond butter but Flax Seeds are so good for you, lowering Cholesterol, fighting Diabetes and even protecting your body against Cancer, so I grabbed it and took it home. After I got a chance to ” Stir It Up” I realized this would not be something I would want to spread on toast but adding it to oatmeal or cookies was delicious and the runny consistency was not an issue.
Makes 2 servings:
2 cups Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 cup Steel Cut or Old Fashioned Oatmeal
1 Bananas thinly sliced
2 tbsp Almond Butter
2 tsp Honey
In a medium sauce pan combine the Almond milk and oatmeal, heat on low until most of the liquid is absorbed. Add in 1/2 of the banana slices and the almond butter mix together and let the oatmeal soak up the rest of the milk. Once all the milk is absorbed, about 15-20 minutes total, move to two bowls, top with more banana slices and drizzle on the honey.
