This recipe is made with ALL natural ingredients.
And before you turn up your nose at any of it, just hear me out.
First, I came from a junk food world – I love everything I’m not supposed to have.
I have cravings all the time for everything I am not supposed to have.
In fact, this health change has not been easy.
However, among several other amazing foods and recipes I have discovered, I created this oatmeal and this oatmeal is my breakfast meal ticket.
Whenever I am craving something sweet, I just make a bowl – not only is it extremely filling, but it’s delicious and has no added sugar or sodium.
It’s a low-fat, low calorie treat and can be made morning, noon or night!

(In this recipe at a glance, it seems the carbs and sugar are extremely high, but please remember a lot of this has to do with the Banana, which is the good carbs and good sugars your body needs.)
¼ c. Steel Cut Oatmeal
1 Tbs. Organic Peanut Butter
1 Tbs. Honey (you can use less to taste)
1 medium Banana
Prepare the steel cut oatmeal as directed on package. Once the oatmeal is finished cooking, remove from heat and add 1 whole medium size banana, 1 Tbs. honey (more or less to taste, I use quite a bit less actually, around about 1 tsp.) and 1 Tbs. organic peanut butter. Obviously you can use any type of peanut butter, oatmeal and honey, but to select healthier products, made the outcome much healthier.
Stir everything together and allow to sit about 1 minute or so before serving.
Serves 2. (actually it is one large serving, but most of the time I want to eat something else with it, so I half it and eat the rest the next day. Store in sealed container in refrigerator. ) Please let me know what you think! 🙂
