Banana Walnut Power Oatmeal

IMG_1252

I am not known as being a super great cook or recipe guy, but I have stumbled across a few dishes that have become staple in my nutrition planning. The majority of my go-to recipes are for breakfast which is one of my favorite meals and a great way to start your day. In addition to basic eggs I tend to make oatmeal variations which are good for a number of reasons including being a good source of carbs, fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. There is also research suggesting that oats can lower cholesterol levels, improve blood sugar control, and help you lose weight. One of my favorite oatmeal recipes is for Banana Walnut Protein oatmeal. While this takes a minute to make it is worth it.

Preparation and cooking time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:
1/2 Cup Oats
1 Banana mashed with a fork
1/2 Cup low-fat milk or almond milk
1 egg white

1 TBSP sweetener
1 tsp Cinnamon

2. Spray non-fat cooking oil into an oven safe bowl or iron skillet. 3. Add and mix all ingredients.
4. Cover with aluminum foil and put into the oven for 20 minutes. 5. Take out to stir 1-2 times during cooking time.
