Made using 1 bowl and the microwave, my 2 minute Banana Protein Porridge has plenty of added healthy fats and protein powder, so it's not just a big carb overload. A hearty mid week breakfast option!
I think it's super important to adapt your eating with the change in seasons. I've noticed how much I am craving warmer food now that the weather is cooler in Melbourne. Porridge, soups, and slow cooked meals is where it is at!
½ cup rolled oats*
1 cup (boiling) water
2/3 banana, sliced
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon maca powder
1 teaspoon tahini
1 tablespoon vanilla Protein Powder
Sprinkle of granola
1 teaspoon maple syrup
In a microwave safe bowl, mix the oats, boiling water, 1/3 banana, chia seed, maca powder and tahini.
Place the bowl into the microwave for 60 seconds, then take the porridge out the microwave and stir.
Place the porridge back in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Stir in the protein, add the remaining banana, granola and maple syrup.
* Gluten free variation - You can use gluten free oats or quinoa flakes instead of rolled oats.
