peanut butter banana oatmeal

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal // SMBP
I never tire of breakfast, it is the one meal that I get totally excited over. I love the ritual of our lazy Sunday morning breakfast, the predictability of breakfast during the work week + the quietness of Saturday mornings with just the pup, kitty + a crossword with a bottomless pot of tea.

Saturday is also the day of branching out; a new oatmeal, vegan eggs bene or whatever was found at the Farmer's market that morning.

If you have been around for a while you know my love of all things peanut butter + banana - throw in some chocolate and you have perfection!

Oatmeal is one of those amazing breakfast's that stays with you for a good part of the day- clean healthy eating.

Oatmeal also allows you to be super creative- there is no such thing as too many toppings when it comes to oatmeal. Load her up, she can totally handle it.

Peanut Butter adds a little extra boost and cinnamon, well cinnamon is just a rock-star- it is the one spice I don't think I could live without, that and salt.

This breakfast is an amazing way to begin your day, it just feels so good making and enjoying. 
It really is quite simple and comes together pretty painlessly. 

Seriously. Make this when you find yourself with an extra 10 minutes to spare- trust me, you will thank me.

Do you have a weekend or weekday breakfast ritual you couldn't live without?
