So every morning I wake up I have this battle in my head about what’s for breakfast?
If it were up to me, I’d only have green tea.
Yeah. I know.
I can be pretty hardcore in the mornings.
But according to everything I read & my super concerned fiancé,
I’m supposed to eat something before noon.
Cut to me standing in front of my pantry for about an hour looking at all of the things that have been forgotten & potentially may go bad in another day or two,
& pondering if eating chips at 7 am qualifies as breakfast & whether I will ever be into the 5 gallon protein shake powder I bought last year…
Then after about 20 minutes of that, I usually promise myself I will finally stop wasting food when there are starving children in ________ & try to figure out what to do with todays’ saddest-almost-dangerous-food in my kitchen.
The winner today: Ripe Bananas
So of course I just had to make:
This is a really easy one-bowl recipe that uses a lot of what you may already have in your kitchen. It’s pretty healthy for you if you use Splenda brown sugar vs regular brown sugar & 1% milk instead of whole milk.
It tastes a little like a cross between banana bread & an oatmeal bar. It’s warm & extra delicious with a little extra milk (or cream if your motto is calorie shmalorie) & even more bananas & walnuts sprinkled on top.
I’ve even heard of some making it the night before & eating it cold…
I don’t know why but do whatever tickles your pickle.
It’s your world.
I just live in it.
