Kids love something sweet for breakfast (and let’s be real – so do we!). It’s time to ditch the flavored, packaged oatmeal that can be loaded with sugars, sweeteners, artificial colors and other junk. It’s so easy to make your own, homemade flavored oatmeal for the kids and yourself!
Here’s a recipe we made this morning to satisfy our craving for something sweet (at 6:30am!)
All Natural, Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal – No Sugar Added
- 1/4 cup quick cook oats
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tablespoon all natural peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon cacao powder (or cocoa for kids- the cacao powder may be too bitter)
- 1/2 banana sliced
Just combine the oats and water first and zap it in the microwave for 55 seconds. Then add the rest of the ingredients. I also added a splash of almond milk to mine.
No sugar, no additives, no crap. All natural goodness that tastes good and is good for you!
