Quick brekkie – Microwave banana peanut butter oatmeal

Quick brekkie – Microwave banana peanut butter oatmeal

One of the best resources I have discovered on Youtube on my quest for #foodspiration is the channel of Gemma Stafford, who is the queen of mug recipes. Here you can find a large collection quick, simple, and delicious meals that can be made à-la-minute with a microwave. You can make them in a mug for small/light meals, or in bigger bowls for lunch or supper. Super cool, right?

Her genius mug meals have given me so much inspo and idea’s, especially for quick weekday breakfasts. All I do then is to play around with whatever I have in the house and give a few healthier twists.

And this banana peanut butter oatmeal mug is the quickest, easiest, and probably the most frequently revisited. It is super flavourful, filling, and nutritious with loads of protein, potassium, vitamins, healthy fats and antioxidants.

See how often I make this? All year round 😉

  • 1/2 medium banana, about 90gr, mashed with a fork
