Vanilla Almond Coconut Oatmeal

What a busy day yesterday was! We had a wedding to go to in the afternoon, but even my morning was quite packed! Although I can’t complain considering it included an hour and a half pedicure. πŸ™‚
To fuel up for the start of my day I decided to make a hearty bowl of oatmeal! If you know me really well, then you know that a lot of the time when I make food, I have a hard time choosing between things to add into said food/recipe. So most of the time my solution is to add it all! πŸ˜› Needless to say, this bowl of oats kept me full for hours!
This oatmeal didn’t really have any extravagant tastes, but it was simple and satisfying. Yes there’s probably a lot of fat in this recipe BUT it’s the good fats — the fats your body likes! Bonus! And before I forget, the coconut water and Greek Yogurt makes the texture of this oatmeal amazing. I absolutely adore adding both to my oatmeal. πŸ™‚ I can’t think of the exact word right now to describe the texture, but the best I can think of now is creamy. Delicious and wonderful and creamy. The best.
Since I’ve been going on and on about the recipe, I have a small inkling that you may want the recipe, so here it is!

β€’~1/2 of a Very Ripe Banana
β€’1/2 cup Rolled Oats (I got organic rolled oats from the local Co-op)
β€’3/4 cup Coconut Water
β€’1/4 tsp Pure Vanilla (or vanilla extract)
β€’1/4 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
β€’2 tbsp Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
β€’1 tbsp Coconut Oil
β€’1 tbsp Raw Almonds
β€’1 tsp Chia Seeds (optional)
β€’1 tsp Flax Seeds (optional)
β€’Cinnamon, to taste

1. Add first four ingredients to a microwave safe bowl and microwave for about 90 seconds (depending on your microwave strength).
2. Add the rest of the ingredients, and now you’re good to go! Have at it!
