Oatmeal: Banana and Blueberry

Episode 1 in the oatmeal series and I am going for a very obvious pairing. But, there is a reason it is so obvious. It works. I don’t really like having big chunks of banana in my oatmeal so to get round this, I completely mash it first. It really helps bring out the sweetness of the banana.

This is really the perfect breakfast. Every Saturday I do a long distance run (well, long distance for me – a warm up for others! Haha) and this recipe (and many more to come) gives me more than enough slow releasing energy.

I also used frozen blueberries for this for which I make no apology, but if you can, use fresh and as always, this is a base, add whatever you want and in this series, I will be taking you through MANY different options.

A simple, tasty, satisfying breakfast.
