I used Oat Bran because its higher in protein than regular Oats but this recipe will be good no matter what kind of grain you use. This is a hearty breakfast for those days when you need a big dose of energy to start your day.
1/3 cup of Oat Bran (or Rolled Oats)
1 medium Ripe Plantain (Very yellow with lots of Black spots)
1 tablespoon of Ground Flax
1 scoop of Chocolate Protein Powder
1.5 cups of Water or Plant-Based Milk
1/4 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
a pinch of salt and cinammon
1/2 cup of Blackberries
1 tablespoon of Peanut Butter
1/2 tablespoon of Black Strap Molasses
1 tablespoon of Coconut Flakes
1 teaspoon of Assorted Seeds
Combine the oats, salt and liquid into a sauce pan on the stove and cook over medium heat while stirring. Once the liquid has reduced and the oats are nearly cooked, add the plantain. Stir.
Now add the vanilla, cinnamon and ground flax. Mix it well til all the ingredients have been combined. Finish cooking the oatmeal to the consistency you like. If it's too thick, you can add a little more milk.
I topped my oats with blackberries, peanut butter, coconut flakes, assorted seeds and black strap molasses.
