I decided to try Happy Herbivore's meal plan this week, looking for even more structure to help me get back on track after two week's vacation and a long weekend down south. I have all of her cookbooks, really enjoy her plant-based, no-added fat style of cooking. All of the recipes I've tried have been flavorful, delicious as well as healthy!
I started my day with Chocolate Banana Oatmeal...oh.my.goodness. Heaven in a bowl! The perfect combination of chocolate and bananas atop hearty oats made for a decadent and very filling breakfast!
Chocolate Banana Oatmeal
½ cup rolled oats (uncooked) (I used steel-cut)
1 ½ tbsp chocolate chips, crushed or chopped into tiny bits (I used vegan carob chips)
½ banana, sliced
Cook oats according to directions in ¾ cup water, or more if you like your oatmeal a bit soupy.
Top with banana slices and chocolate chip bits.
