Easy as Pie: Apple & Banana Oats

BY KATIE BRIGGS You've heard it before, I'll say it again, breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Studies have shown that starting your day with a hearty and healthy breakfast correlations with weightloss as well as increased energy levels. I have always been a huge fan of oatmeal, and love seeing the variations people come up with, such as my friends amazing overnight oats recipes. The great thing about oatmeal is that its versatile. This recipe calls for apples and bananas but would be just as good with any other fruits! Here is my quick and easy recipe that can be done on the stovetop or the microwave:

1 apple diced and sliced

1/2 banana sliced

1/3 cup oats

1/3 cup soy/dairy milk

1 tablespoon butter/substitue

1 teaspoon flax and chia seeds(optional)

In a pot heat butter and apples until soft or desired texture. Add milk, oats, flax, chia seeds and stir until oats are soft. Top with banana and extra apples. Enjoy!

***for microwave: in a bowl combine all ingrediants(minus banana), and heat for 4 minutes.
