5-Minute Granola Power Bowl
This quick 5-minute granola power bowl is sure to keep you full for hours! It’s made with only four nutritious ingredients and can be made vegan and gluten-free. This is not your typical granola.
This 5-minute granola power bowl just got a makeover! I originally shared this recipe in 2017 when I was in the middle of my dietetic internship. A lot has changed since then, but my love for this recipe hasn’t. To this day, it’s one of the recipes I make the most from Nourished by Caroline. Why? Because it’s incredibly easy, filling and delicious.
This hearty bowl takes only 5 minutes to put together and requires only 4 ingredients (plus toppings of choice)! This is the breakfast I turn to when I need fuel for a long morning. It never fails to keep me full until lunch – nothing else has the power to do that.
I usually top mine with regular plain yogurt (often vegan yogurt lately), cocoa nibs and shredded coconut. You could even top it with a sprinkle of chocolate chips. I also like to sprinkle this “granola” over ice cream to make cookie dough ice cream. Trust me, it’s good.
How to Make a Granola Power Bowl
Here’s how it works: Mash a banana with nut butter (I love sunflower seed butter or salted peanut butter) and vanilla with a fork. Add your oats, starting with half a cup. Increase the amount gradually until you get a thick mixture (not dry or sticky). The amount of oats needed depends on the size of your banana, but typically, one very small banana will need half a cup and a large banana will require one cup. When everything is mixed together, add your desired toppings.
This power bowl has been one of my favorite breakfasts for many years. It may sound strange, but trust me, it’s the best. I hope you’ll give it a try!
