Blueberry Banana Breakfast Oatmeal

Standard

Mama’s Oatmeal – as my 5yo calls it.

I never liked breakfast even though it was always deemed the most important meal of the day.  I dislike soggy cereal, nothing ever filled me up so I didn’t see the point, and who has the time!  A cup of coffee was a great way to start the day for me: quick, easy and I could take it to go.

I can no longer enjoy milk like I used to and I now know the horrible truth of caffeine:(  Since doing the 6-week challenge, I had to stop drinking caffeine and milk anyways so it was a good time to explore other breakfast options.

Now, I eat a nutrient-packed breakfast that really fills me up and I can take it to go since I still don’t have time to eat at home most mornings.

I have included two versions.  My little one really like the idea of what I was eating but she is not a fan of blueberries or seeds so I left them out and added a bit of honey and sprinkled hers with coconut.  She thinks that she is getting such a treat!

Ingredients for Mama’s Oatmeal

1/4 cup Oats (not the quick oats)
3 Tbsp 100% Pomegranate juice
1 banana, sliced
1 cup of frozen blueberries
1/4 of mixed seeds and chopped nuts (sunflower seeds, walnuts, etc…)
2 Tbsp raisins

Directions

Put all the ingredients in a small bowl and combine together with a spoon.
Microwave on high for 2 1/2 minutes.
Mix together again and enjoy!
At this point, it is always too hot to eat so I put it in a container and take it with me if I am not coming straight home after school drop-off.
