Tomorrow, my mom and I will start on our drive to Orlando! All of today will be spent packing. You’d think after being at college for four years, I would be an expert at packing, but nope. Wish me luck!
To prepare for my busy day, I decided to start out the morning with a bowl of creamy oatmeal made on the stove instead of microwave.
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1 cup water
- 2 egg whites (optional)
- A couple dashes of almond milk
- 1/2 sliced banana
- A dash of cinnamon
- Sugar (optional)
- Combine oats, chia seeds and water in a small pot. Stir frequently as it begins to boil, and continue until it thickens.
- Reduce heat and add a splash of almond milk and 2 egg whites (if you’d like). Continue to stir until it thickens.
- Pour oatmeal into bowl. Add another splash of almond milk, a sprinkle or two of cinnamon, sugar (optional) and top with banana slices.
I hope you enjoy this simple oatmeal recipe. Sometimes I make this in bigger batches and reheat the next day for a quick on-the-go breakfast.
What is your favorite on-the-go breakfast idea?
