Past 2 weeks were so cramped up.. switching over to from PrettySwirls to TheCakeIssue, logo design and prepping for an event this Saturday, health is almost falling apart but so thankful for friends who are willing to help within this period to made it much easier! :*} If you guys have seen it on TheCakeIssue's FACEBOOK (Do show some love by liking okay? I promise to bring you all more surprises and work along the way!)/ my Instagram (@winifredfred), We are collaborating with Klarra to bring you ladies some sweet deserts for the afternoon while you do your exclusive shopping for your CNY @ Klarra's very own space; more details below!
Before the crazy weekend ahead, I want to share one of my favourite warm breakfast bowls, think warm thick congee but with a twist in flavour with caramelised banana, does it makes you think of that caramelised banana ice cream at Swensens? About the same, just that the temperature differs sky-high. hahaha.
Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal
(Feeds 1 pax)
1 large very ripe banana, peeled and roughly chopped
1 tsp non-dairy butter or coconut oil
1/2 tbsp natural peanut butter
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2-1 tsp chia seed (or ground flax)
1 cup almond milk
pinch of salt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Toppings: heaping 1/2 tbsp peanut butter, roasted Almonds
- In a medium-sized pot over medium heat, cook the banana and non-dairy butter or oil for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Stir in 1/2 tbsp peanut butter, and add the oats, chia, milk, spices, and a pinch of salt. Whisk well until combined.
- Bring to a low boil and then reduce heat to a simmer, stirring often for 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
- Scoop into a bowl and top with (what-ever-you-like) e.g. peanut butter, nuts, cinnamon, and maple syrup.
Why is this so good? The caramelized banana acts as a natural sweetener for this warm oatmeal bowl! No sugar needed! Below are the details of Klarra's Tea Party, do RSVP quickly! Fastest fingers first ;)
