before taking off: banana bread muesli

by Chen

Wednesday? Yes. Breakfast today? Yes. No class? 9:30 am. Still enjoy a yummy morning treat? Of course, everyday.

Caramel on the banana slices? No. My dear friend, Eddy, brought me some Manuka honey from Australia. I had no idea what it was but immediately got hooked; it was strong-flavored and thick, well, like caramel.

MMM…ready to go to school now.

banana bread muesli
Makes 1 serving

1/3 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup plain yogurt
cinnamon to taste
1/4 tsp vanilla (optional)

1/2 banana, mashed
1/2 banana, thinly sliced
1 tbsp chopped walnuts, toasted
1 tsp honey

In a large bowl, stir oats, milk, yogurt, cinnamon, and vanilla together until well combined. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Take the oats mixture out of the refrigerate (you may want to do this ahead to bring it to room temperature). Stir in mashed banana. Top with banana slices, walnuts, and honey and serve. (I added some more cinnamon. Yum!)
