This is kind of lame as far as recipes go, but it’s my standard cold weather breakfast. It’s heart healthy with oatmeal and flax, and the omega-3’s in the flax help with depression. I’ve found volumetric measuring to be inaccurate so I weigh everything, but it’s one serving according to the respective packages of the oatmeal, flax meal and peanut butter. If you aren’t weighing the banana, it’s about 3/4 of an average-sized banana.
40g old-fashioned oatmeal (or quick oats if you prefer) (27g carbs/4g fiber)
13g flax seed meal (4g carbs/4g fiber)
Cook in the microwave per package directions. (Watch that you use a big enough bowl because I’ve had some messy overflowing oatmeal to clean out of my microwave…)
Once it’s cooked, I add:
1 package of artificial sweetener
2.5 ounces milk (4g carbs)
31g peanut butter, Simply Jif or comparable low sugar pb (6g carbs/2g fiber)
66g sliced banana (15g carbs/2g fiber)
I know it’s a carb explosion for the low-carb folks, but for anyone else who eats a reasonable amount of carbs, it’s 56g carbs total with 12g fiber. It’s really yummy, very filling, and super nutritious.
