Breakfast was out-of-control amazing today – Banana Split Oatmeal!!

Remember when I told you I had 10 jars of almond/peanut/nut butter in my house at this very moment? Well, four of them are some nut butters that MaraNatha sent me to try!

I used the Creamy Almond Butter and Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter (!!) to create the melty, luscious topping on my banana split inspired oats.

In the mix:

  • 1/3 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 banana (1/2 cut in while cooking, 1/2 on top)
  • cinnamon, vanilla extract
  • strawberries
  • 2 teaspoons of each almond butter
  • dashes of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze

I microwaved the butters with a splash of USVAB for 10 seconds, then stirred and drizzled over my warm oats, and fresh fruit. UNBELIEVABLE!

Believe it or not, I actually don’t love super sugary-sweet things in the morning, like chocolate chips in my pancakes or oats, but I will absolutely make an exception for dark chocolate peanut butter after tasting this. So good! :D

My Mom is coming to eat lunch with me outdoors today, so I packed a super portable lunch – perfect for a picnic.

That’s a thin bun, cheddar cheese, roasted turkey and Dijon mustard.

The heat index is supposed to reach 110 today, so hopefully we don’t melt out there – eek!
