29 Aug Banana Bread Batter Breakfast Bowl
Sometimes I eat weird s#$%. Like this Banana Bread Batter Breakfast Bowl; an oddly delicious combo I whipped up one day with oat flour (made of ground oats), coconut or almond milk, banana, vanilla and nuts. This ridiculously fast and easy “recipe” (not sure it even qualifies as a recipe seeing how easy it is) is gluten free, high in fiber and potassium and tastes like a warm banana bread batter. It even has that clumpy batter-like texture too. I like it for breakfast or whenever I’m craving banana bread. You can even reheat leftovers the next day with a little almond or coconut milk. Make sure to check out the “What’s the Balance?” section below. This dish is totally filling, especially when you pair it with protein on the side, so adjust your portion accordingly. I usually have about 1 cup Banana Bread Batter Breakfast Bowl with 3 to 4 egg whites on the side as protein for a metabolism-boosting breakfast.
Banana Bread Batter Breakfast Bowl
Makes 3 cups = 2 to 3 servings depending on if you’re male or female and how hungry you are!
- 3 cups of unsweetened vanilla or plain almond or coconut milk
- 3/4 cup lightly packed gluten free oat flour (I like Bob’s Red Mill brand)
- 1 large nice and ripe banana, chopped small
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Pure honey or pure maple syrup
- Walnuts, pecans or almonds (optional)
- Pour almond or coconut milk into a sauce pan. Bring to a simmer over medium low heat.
- Whisk in oat flour while breaking up as many clumps as you can.
- Reduce heat so batter cooks at a gentle simmer and continue cooking for approximately 3 minutes while whisking often. Stir in chopped banana and cook an additional minute. Pour batter into bowl(s). Taste the cooked batter mixture to see how sweet it is and how much syrup or honey you need. The goal is to get it sweet enough while adding as little as possible to keep the sugar down, so add just a little at a time. Garnish with your favorite nuts and enjoy!
SO, WHAT’S THE NUTRITION BALANCE?
This recipe is made of carbs and fat. Add a lean protein like egg whites or protein powder mixed with water on the side for a metabolism-boosting meal.
