Banana Whip Oats

August 21st, 2011 | Posted by Alison Spath in Breakfast

I go through phases where I eat oats every day. And then there are times where the oatmeal canister gathers dust on its top. This week I’ve been back in that oat phase, and am apparently in a frozen banana phase too.

I discovered this concoction last week by accident, really – I can’t even tell you what possessed me to throw oats in the food processor when making banana whip. I just know that I did.

So maybe I don’t know exactly why I did it, but I can tell you I feel almost naughty eating this as my first meal of the day. Especially with a scoop of almond butter plunked down into the middle of that cold oaty bananany mess.

It’s thick! And cold! And sweet! And nutty!  Who needs cookie dough ice cream for dessert when you can have it for breakfast?

You’ll see!  Naughty is exactly right.
