Oatmeal with banana and nuts


Author: Aušra

Date:

This morning was cloudy so it was a good time to cook this oatmeal. My kids don”t like simple oatmeal (or I just think that I still didn”t learn to cook it tasty), so I decided to make a little bit sweet but still healty version. Banana gives mild sweetness and nuts adds some crunchy texture. In the original recipe walnuts are used, but we don”t like them so I changed them to hazelnuts. At the end my little one asked next time not to add nuts at all. So decide by yourself to use or not to use nuts in your oatmeal.

Moliūginė granola su šokolado gabaliukais

Pumpkin granola with chocolate chunks

Usually I make granola in summer, when it’s hot outside and no one wants to eat porridge. But when last week I tried new recipe for granola bars and I had only crumbs, my kids ate it just like usual granola for breakfast. And then they asked to make more granola. So I make my favourite at this moment granola. Kids’ favourite granola will have to wait a little bit. They enjoy this granola too, just for them I had to add chocolate with more sugar.

Ground flax seed porridge

Lately, if we have bananas, I always make flax seed porridge. I like it very much. And if I add chopped fruits that are at the moment at home, and sprinkle with chopped toasted nuts – porridge comes out unreal! All my family enjoy this porridge, even the smallest and the largest. And I just love the fact that it is healthy and useful, and tasty.

Chocolate banana shake

One more healthy recipe that I found in books about healthy living. It’s without diary products – that was one good point for me. Another thing – it’s with flaxseed. I’m trying to use them more in our daily family diet. So I almost ran to the kitchen and mixed it. I really recommend to let soak flaxseed meal in water for a few minutes, or your shake will be with hard small parts. But if you will be patient – shake will be very thick and creamy.

Simple oatmeal cake

This cake is not very sweet, so if you like sweeter add 1 cup of sugar. That I did when baked second time. Because of the bigger sugar amount batter was more runny so I skipped sour cream. The cake came out very good and everyone agreed that this time it was better. So make your decisions and try this really simple cake by yourself. – See more at: https://www.virtuvele.lt/?p=3601&preview=true#sthash.LVQycmFN.dpuf
