A sneak peak into my bedroom to demonstrate just how enticing I find the idea of spending the entire day in pajamas. Delivery to the bed, Netflix on the screen, and the hubs and pup sharing the king. Ideal, right?
Mornings like this Jack Johnson’s ‘Banana Pancakes’ plays in my head, and I envision Jon waking me up and crooning (guitar in hand) : “Maybe we can sleep in/I’ll make you banana pancakes/Pretend like it’s the weekend now…” Jon’s everything I could ask for and more, but the man can’t carry a tune (although he tries in the shower) and so this dream remains.. a dream.
Still though, the dream-life-song-scenario was strong enough to prompt me to make (and share) my favorite banana breakfast recipe. A little healthier (i.e. way way way healthier) than pancakes, and, well, absolutely delicious.
I only thought to share the recipe because I’ve made it the past few days (read Friday, Saturday, Sunday and I still have more bananas in the kitchen). Perfect for holiday mornings, make this and you’ll be making new friends left, right and center (and possibly earning even more lavish holiday gifts than you originally thought you’d receive). It’s also a Pinterest favorite, so the chances that everyone else is already eating them is high high high.
Anyway, here is the 4-ingredient recipe that makes me swoon like a high school crush: 1 banana, 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1/8 cup chopped walnuts, and 1/8 cup chocolate chips. Mix together (add chocolate chips last) and then bake for 8 minutes at 350. Serves 2 if you have self control and 1 if you don’t (like me):
Delicious and healthy enough to eat for breakfast (or all day long).
What’s your favorite thing to make for breakfast?
