  • 1/3 cup steel cut oats
  • 1 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 heaping tbsp. almond butter
  • Handful of raspberries

Combine the oats and water in a pot over high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally for about 25 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed.

While the oats are cooking, warm the olive oil to a small skillet. Add the banana slices and cook for a few minutes on each side, until warm and slightly mushy.

When the oatmeal is ready, stir in the cinnamon and transfer the mixture to a bowl for serving. In sections, top the oatmeal with the warmed banana, almond butter and raspberries.

Serves 1.
