5-Minute Raw Granola Power Bowl
This quick and healthy breakfast bowl is sure to keep you full until lunch! Made with only four ingredients, this recipe requires only 5 minutes to prepare. Top it with plain yogurt, shredded coconut and cocoa nibs or chocolate chips for a real morning treat.
- 1 medium ripe banana
- 1 cup quick oats
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter (I use salted) or sunflower seed butter
- Plain regular or Greek yogurt
- Shredded coconut
- Dried mulberries
- Dark chocolate chips or unsweetened carob chips
- Cocoa nibs
- Fruit jam
- Fresh berries
In a small bowl, mash together your banana, nut butter and vanilla extract with a fork.
Add your quick oats and mix all the ingredients together. Add desired toppings and enjoy!
I recommend quick oats in this recipe, as rolled oats will be harder to chew when uncooked. Quick oats will blend beautifully with your mashed banana to give you an oatmeal cookie dough texture. I sometimes like using half quick oats and half rolled oats for more texture.
The size of the banana will influence the amount of oats needed in this recipe. For a small banana, start with 1/2 cup of oats, then increase gradually until you get a thick, but not dry mixture. A larger banana will require closer to 1 cup of oats.
It's important that you use a ripe banana for this recipe to ensure that you get a sweet rawnola.
Try making a half portion if you're not a big eater in the morning as it can get very filling. It's best served right away.
