Conversations about the winter recently have lead to many people telling me they’re “over it”. As much as I get all excited about the first snowfall and as much as the peace and quiet, the sunrise over snow and the beauty of it all still make me stop and admire the wonders of nature, I too am looking forward to days where I can wear minimal layers and basque in the sunshine.
That being said, we still have a little way to go so I’m looking for ways to jazz things up a little.
I started with breakfast. Oat bran is one of my favourites during the winter, it’s a very simple dish to make and the list of things to do with it are endless. This recipe came out of needing to use up some bananas and a craving for nutmeg.
Prep time: less than 5 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes
Serves: two people or one hungry person
2 cups of water
2/3 cups of oat bran
3 ripe bananas, sliced
1 tsp of nutmeg
1 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of vanilla essence
1 tsp of raw honey (add more for a sweet tooth)
1tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
In a saucepan, boil the water and add the oat bran stirring gently. Take off of the heat. In a frying pan, heat the oil and add the sliced bananas then add the nutmeg, cinnamon and honey. Fry over a medium heat for 2 or 3 minutes and serve on top of the oat bran. Serve and enjoy!
Tip: Why not try layering the oat bran and the bananas? Makes it a little more exciting when eating.
Sending oodles of love and light to you all.
