Creamy Spicy Banana Oatmeal

Oatmeal with fruits, nuts and seeds

Ingredients for 1 Person:

  • ½ cup quinoa or oats (e.g. gluten free oats, amaranth)
  • water
  • cinnamon powder, ground nutmeg, cloves
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 squashed ripe banana (rich in potassium, magnesium, and fiber)
  • 1 TBSP ground flaxseed or chia seeds (Omega-3 fats)
  • optional: unsweetened raw cacao powder (has more antioxidants and nutrients than cocoa)

Cook the oats or quinoa in water with the salt and spices in a saucepan with a lid over medium low heat (5-10 mins. for the oats / 10-15 mins. for the quinoa), stirring occasionally. Add more liquid as required. Turn off the stove and let it cool down a bit. Heat destroys some nutrients. Add the banana, seeds, and cacao.

Topping: Almond butter
Tip: Precook a lot of quinoa and store it in the fridge. Add 2 TBSP of water before adding the rest.
