5 minutes Oatmeal Breakfast with Cinnamon and Banana

It is delicious, healthy, sweet, affordable, easy and quick to make. It’s a very convenient solution for those who are always in a hurry in the morning and in need of a breakfast that will keep them filled up until lunch time. This is a high protein, high fibre breakfast.

Ingredients

1/2 cup rolled oats, old-fashioned
1 cup water
Pinch of salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Toppings
1 large ripe banana, chopped

2-3 dates, chopped
10 almonds

Instructions

1. Add the water and salt to a pot and bring to boil over medium-high heat.
2. In the meantime, prepare your toppings. Chop the banana, dates, and almonds.
3. Stir in the oats and let the water return to a rolling boil.
4. When the water is boiling, immediately reduce heat to low and simmer. Add the cinnamon and stir occasionally until the water is absorbed around 2-3 minutes.
5. Move into the serving bowl and combine with the toppings. I personally like to add a bit more cinnamon. 

Notes

*I believe that adding a pinch of salt is crucial, otherwise, I find the taste of oatmeal to be flat. A pinch of salt will make a huge difference and won’t affect the sweetness of it. 

*I also recommend adding nuts as they will keep you filled up until lunch time.
