5-Minute Cinnamon Bun Oatmeal (Gluten-Free)

 

Ingredients:

Oatmeal

1 cup milk of choice (dairy, almond, etc.)

½ cup quick-cooking oats (not instant)

½ small RIPE banana, mashed

1 tbsp chia, hemp or flax seeds

½ tsp ground cinnamon

Pinch sea salt

 

Topping

2 tsp maple syrup

½ tsp ground cinnamon

2 tbsp vanilla-flavored Greek yogurt

3 pecans, chopped

 

* For gluten-free, make sure you use certified gluten-free oats.

In a small saucepan, heat milk over medium-high heat until just barely simmering. Reduce heat to low. Add oats, banana, chia, cinnamon and salt. Cook and stir for 3 minutes or until oats reach desired consistency. Remove from heat and spoon into a serving bowl.

In a small bowl, combine maple syrup and cinnamon. Mix well. Drizzle maple-cinnamon mixture and yogurt over oatmeal. Top with chopped pecans. Serve hot.
