Power Oatmeal

Cooking Time

3 minutes




1/3 C of rolled oats

1 C of milk -- I prefer almond or cashew milk

1/2 banana sliced into small chunks

1/4 of a chopped apple or pear

handful of blackberries or pomegranate seeds (or dried cranberries)

1 T of nut butter (peanut, almond or sunflower seed butter all work well)


Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and microwave for three minutes. 

Stir in nut butter and top with berries, pomegranate seeds or dried cranberries. 


Feel free to mix up the fruit you use.  I like the above combo because it gives a good diversity of nutrients, fiber and textures.
