Banana-Pecan Oatmeal Recipe – Ingredients:
1/2 cup oatmeal (I’ve chosen the gluten-free Bob’s Red Mill)
1/3 cup skinny milk
1/4 cup fat free Greek yogurt
1/4 cup apple sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 packet Stevia sweetener
1/4 sliced banana
1 tablespoon diced pecans
Banana-Pecan Oatmeal Recipe – How to prepare:
As I said before, the preparation is super easy. You just have to layer the first 7 ingredients and then mix it together, until truly combined.
Now you can add sliced bananas, diced pecans and stir gently until combined. Put the lid on the jar and place it in fridge overnight (up to 2 days). Its gonna taste so good!
Tip: this oatmeal version is thick. If you prefer it a little bit more fluid, you can reduce the oat quantity. You can also create new versions … add cocoa, honey, use different fruits, etc. It is super versatile!
