On WordPress’s, which is my blog host, dashboard there is an option called “tag surfer”. I am addicted to it. It allows me to read other blogs that might be similar to mine. I have found some really great ideas. I recently read a post by Meb Byrne at Glitter Sleuth for called Vegan Blueberry Oat Cakes. The picture was intriguing and I am always up for an oat recipe. She found this from Love Veggies and Yoga.
The recipe is simple and fast.
The other evening I was not in a dinner mood and when I tell my kids we are having breakfast for dinner they jump for joy. I decided to try this recipe with what I had on hand.
Ingredients: (made 4 heaping servings)
Splash of skim milk (or almond milk, coconut milk, etc)
1 – 2 cups of old-fashioned oats
2-3 ripe bananas ( I had some in the freezer, they worked really well after I defrosted them for about 90 seconds in the microwave)
Cinnamon (to your taste preference)
1 1/2 c fruit ( I used frozen raspberries)
Mash the banana in a microwave safe dish ( I used a mini deep dish stone from Pampered Chef)
Sprinkle Cinnamon and add oats and mix throughly
Fold in fruit as best as you can, it is a little sticky. Add a splash of milk and microwave for 2 minutes. Check how it looks, I added a splash more milk, just to cover the top layer thinly. Microwave for 2-3 more minutes till hot. Serve.
You can also sprinkle brown sugar, nuts, or other toppings as you wish. This was a huge hit. Another great use for ripe bananas!
Many thanks to Tag Surfer, Meb Byrne and Averie for this recipe. YUM!!
