My bananas aren’t ripe 😦
I’m a banana fan as I’ve mentioned in the past. I usually have at least one per day sliced up in my oats or on toast or in a smoothie. The riper the better! Today my bananas are just yellow. While I could have enjoyed it on a piece of toast, I really wanted oatmeal but I try to use really ripe bananas in my oats. I guess because of the sugar breakdown as they ripen, they’re sweeter when riper?
My combo contained:
1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill 8 Grain Hot Cereal (or oats or oat bran)
1 carrot, finely grated
lots of cinnamon
dash of allspice
squirt of vanilla extract
topped with plain greek yogurt, agave nectar and a few pieces of walnuts
Pretty delicious! Interesting way to get a veggie in!
Still… nothing beats the creamy sweetness my sliced banana adds to my oats! I’m going to try this again but next time with a banana as a sweetener instead of agaven nectar!
Thanks for the inspiration, Christie!
Today is another busy day! Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday! But something fun…Tonight I’m baking for a faculty/student mixer! I’m a little concerned because it was advertised as such: “Come mingle with faculty! Enjoy tea and coffee! Savor Karla’s delicious baked goods!” … just a little pressure to make sure it’s great!
See you tonight for some baking!!
