Peanut Butter & Banana Oatmeal Bowl

Mmmm this is one of my MOST favorite ways to enjoy my morning oatmeal – although I could definitely eat this at anytime of the day. I find this to be the perfect meal before a trail run or mountain bike ride – giving me lots of energy to push through the tough sections.



  • 1/2 cup oats ( I like a mixture of steel cut & large flake)
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp chocolate protein powder (optional)
  • 1 -2 Tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 sliced banana
  • 1 Tbsp raw cacao nibs


  • Place the oats and chia seeds in a bowl and cook according to package directions.
  • Stir in protein powder.(optional)
  • Top with natural (I like crunchy) peanut butter, banana slices and sprinkle with the cacao nibs.
