BAKED BANANA OATMEAL
I’ve said before that I sometimes make gluten free oatmeal. However, I always add hydrolysed gelatin powder (also called collagen powder) and coconut oil or butter. This way my oatmeal becomes more than just a carbohydrate rich meal. I explain more why in this post where I make Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal with Caramelised Apples & Nuts.
I only make these breakfasts with gluten free grains occasionally or a few times a week. I always try to lower my intake of grains including gluten free grains. Some mornings I’ll have eggs, bacon and avocado or sausages but I don’t feel like these protein rich meals every morning. Another thing that I like to make for breakfast is smoothie bowls topped with my grain free granola like these two. One with kale & strawberries and one with black currant.
This Baked Banana Oatmeal is altered from Bake Rita’s Banana Coconut Baked Oatmeal http://www.bakerita.com/banana-coconut-baked-oatmeal-gluten-free-sugar-free-vegan/. I mixed all the ingredients the night before and stored it in a bowl in the fridge. The next morning I added boiling water as all the water was completely absorbed overnight. Add water until the consistency is like oatmeal made in a pot. I served it by drizzling Bake Rita’s Strawberry Cashew Butter.
