Banana Cream Pie Oatmeal… enter into the hero of oatmeals. It’s filling it’s nutritious, and it’s sweetened naturally! It’s fragrant and hardy and all the things you might expect when you sit down for a warm breakfast. This Banana Cream Pie Oatmeal transports you right to dessert without all the sugar so you can feel good about getting your day started off right. Oh! And did I mention there is caramelized bananas and banana creme protein involved too?
This recipe is so simple, it’s hard to believe that something this simple can taste so darn delicious. I guess what they say is true… sometimes less is more. Let’s take a closer peek at this 15-minute Banana Cream Pie Oatmeal, shall we?
☆ gluten-free quick oats
☆ Svelte Banana Creme Organic Protein Shake
☆ maple syrup
☆ almond extract
☆ toppings: caramelized bananas, walnuts, chia seeds, cinnamon
That’s it! It’s the perfect solution to quick + simple + healthy.
Other than the fact that Svelte Organic Protein Shakes are absolutely delicious, they are vegan, gluten-free, organic, non-GMO, have a low-glycemic index, and contain complex carbohydrates which give you sustained energy longer. There is only 6 grams of sugar in all their flavors, including their newest, Banana Crème which I used in this recipe.
Being that I eat a vegan diet, I am always looking for ways to get more protein in my diet and Svelte is an easy, perfect way to do so. You can enjoy them straight from their eco-friendly packaging, or get creative and add them to your favorite recipes in place of your milk as I did with this Banana Cream Pie Oatmeal!
