Cozy Golden Oats w/ Almond Butter & Caramelized Bananas

Maybe I’m resisting the transition of spring and clinging to the coziness of winter, but this week I wanted to share with you this easy recipe for cozy, golden oats, with decadent almond butter and caramelized bananas. This idea was originally inspired by this gorgeous instagram account which causes me to drool on my phone almost daily.

Why has nobody told me about the amazingness of caramelized bananas before???? I learned this delicious trick from Amy over at this blog. No sugar or sweeteners are necessary, you just need coconut oil and a nonstick pan.

Caramelizing bananas is also EASY, it takes less than 5 minutes and takes your breakfast to the next level. Cooking the banana slices in a little bit of coconut oil makes them extra sweet, soft, and beautifully browned. The coconut flavor from the oil paired with the banana is simply divine.

Product Suggestions:

You could use warming, cozy spices such as turmeric and ginger, but I personally love the superfood mixes from Your Super. I used the Golden Mellow Superfood Mix for this oatmeal (sidenote: I also use it for golden milk lattes at night as a relaxation ritual, sooo yummy). Their superfood mixes are made from high quality, organic, and responsibly sourced superfood ingredients. I use their products every single day and very highly recommend them!
