Carrie @ Carrie On Vegan and Gabby @ The Veggie Nook. They added a new co-host this week, Katherine Natalia @ Green Thickies! Swing by and check out the assortment of healthy vegan foods if you're interested. They get a lot of great posts every week.
My link up for this week is a hot breakfast item: Tahini Banana Oats. When it's cold out I usually start with a green smoothie then have some warm oats a few hours later. I've been putting tahini in a whole lotta' everything lately. It just tastes good to me, so I'm going with it. If tahini's not your thing, feel free to sub almond butter or whatever nut butter suits your fancy.
Tahini Banana Oats
1/2 cup gluten free oats
1/2 cup almond milk
2 tablespoons tahini
sprinkle of cinnamon
stevia or sweetener of your choice to taste
Stir everything except the banana together and prepare according to your preference. I have three ways to prepare oats:
1. Soak together overnight then eat cold or heat in the morning.
2. Combine in a pan over medium heat and cook until the oats are tender and the consistency has thickened.
3. Combine and put in the microwave (GASP!) for about 2 minutes until warm and thick.
Add sliced bananas and sprinkle more cinnamon on top.
I really love warm oats on cold mornings and the tahini makes them extra creamy. The banana and cinnamon are a perfect compliment. I could probably eat this every morning for a long, long time.
Any fun plans for the weekend? You know me... I'll be hittin' the books :)
