So Friday for some reason, I was really craving a huge bowl o' oatmeal.....for lunch. Not really sure why I wanted oats for lunch, but I went with the flow and came up with what might just be my all time favorite way to eat oats!
It is really very simple, so I'm not even going to write my method out as an actual recipe...just thought I'd share what I did! Basically, I cooked my oatmeal like I normally do (1/3 cup oats in 2/3 cup milk and 2/3 cup water...cooking it in double the liquid for a little bit longer than usual really makes the oatmeal extra creamy!), and in the last few minutes of cooking, I added some maple extract and some strawberry extract. Then, I caramelized some banana and mixed it in the oatmeal, for extra creaminess and flavor, and topped it all with cinnamon! So easy, but the extracts really made the oats taste different! :D What's your favorite way to eat oatmeal?
Well, for today, I've pretty much just got school stuff to do....getting back in that routine! I'm pretty excited about most of my classes though, so this year should be a good one!!!!
See you all later!
