Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Oatmeal with Baked Banana
2 packages Modern Oats Nuts & Seeds oatmeal containers, 2 cups raw hazelnut milk (or non-dairy milk of your choice, I just happened to have some leftover raw hazelnut milk readily available for this!), 1 banana, 2 tbsp maple syrup, 2 tbsp raw natural crunchy peanut butter, 1 tbsp vegan chocolate chips, 1 tbsp coconut yogurt, 1 tbsp vegan fudge, coconut chips, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, walnuts
Place both containers of oats in a medium-sized pot with 1.5 cup oatmeal. Heat over low-medium, stirring occasionally. Do not bring to a boil! Cook these oats "al-dente", for maybe 3-4 minutes. Place into an oven-safe bowl. Now, to get that perfectly caramelized banana, slice your banana in half lengthwise. Lay flat over the cooked oats, and drizzle with your two tablespoons of maple syrup. Place in a broiler on HIGH. Watch closely, this could take anywhere from 3-5 minutes. Do not over-broil or you will burn your banana! Now, for your toppings. Add a dollop of peanut butter, a scoop of yogurt for some tang, some pumpkin seeds, chocolate chips, coconut chips, and any other nuts or seeds you have laying around - flax, pumpkin, almond, walnut, chia seed, sesame seed.
