Pb, Banana & Chocolate Baked Oatmeal

Hello! Good Morning! How are ya? Good? Good good. I’m pretty good myself, as you can probably tell. I’m feeling…..chipper. Yep, that’s exactly the word I’m searching for. Chipper.

My chipper mood might have something to do with 1. my Parents coming to visit this Sunday for two whole weeks (very excited), 2. my Sister getting her degree results (she did very, very well – so proud of her), and 3. I just ate a yummy breakfast (good food always makes me happy).

Breakfast.

One of my favourite times of the day.

The other two are lunch and dinner;)

I honestly don’t get why people skip breakfast. If you are one of those breakfast skipper people then shame on you. Shame on you for a. poo pooing the ‘most important meal of the day’, b. missing a great opportunity to eat (there are three meals in the day – why would you voluntarily eliminate one?) and c. your body needs fuel dudes (even if you don’t feel hungry, you need to break-that-fast and prepare yourself for the day). Gosh, when did I get all grown up? And cranky?

Rewind.

I’m chipper today. Let’s keep it that way.

If this recipe doesn’t alter your mood then maybe a gander at this fantabulous website will do the trick. I discovered this mental (in a good way) girl on Hello Giggles and I can’t get over how brilliant she and her wicked website is – quirky, funny, stylish and best of all Vegan! In fact, I loved it before I even knew she was vegan so it was a bonus when I discovered this crazy cool lady was a no meat and dairy girl too. Snap! It helps that she’s incredibly pretty and wears the cutest outfits ever – check out the bow ring she dons in a few of the Mr.Kate web tv episodes. I have a similar red plastic one, which always gets compliments whenever I wear it.

Another thing that gets compliments is this baked oatmeal. Okay, so the compliment usually comes from my Husband but in my world that still counts.

  2. Im very interested by this recipe, the ingredients look unusual but intriguing! My favourite porridge to date is one I had in Edinburgh, simply organic porridge with white chooclate and hazelnuts! For breakfast I regularly have my porridge cooked with cinnamon and chopped banana .. yummy

    I love breakfast! I never used to eat it and was starving by 11am and cranky all morning – I couldn’t believe how much better I felt when I actually started eating a healthy breakfast rather than a pile of biscuits with my morning coffee.
    This recipe looks delicious. I’m not a fan of very sweet breakfasts though I could be tempted to make this for desert! 🙂

      Hannah, believe it or not, it’s not massively sweet – I’m the same, I can’t handle too much sweetness first thing. It would totally make for a great snack/dessert too though:) I hope you try it!
