INGREDIENTS

Oatmeal

  • 1 cup milk of choice (dairy, almond, etc.)
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats (not instant)
  • 1/2 small ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 tbsp chia, flax or hemp seeds 
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch sea salt

Topping

  • 2 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp vanilla-flavoured Greek yogurt
  • 3 pecans, chopped

 

DIRECTIONS

1 In a small saucepan, heat the milk over medium-high heat until barely simmering.

2 Reduce the heat to low. Add the oats, banana, chia seeds, cinnamon and sea salt. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until the oats reach your desired consistency. Remove from the heat and spoon into a serving bowl.

3 To make the topping, combine the maple syrup and cinnamon in a small bowl. Drizzle the maple syrup mixture and the yogurt over the oatmeal. Top with the chopped pecans; serve.

Makes: 1 serving
