|2 min||3 min||1|
|1/2 cup||Quick oats|
|3/4 cup||Egg white|
|1/2 cup||Almond milk, unsweetened|
1. Peel and mash the banana in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
2. Add the oats, egg white, almond milk and cinnamon to the bowl with the banana and mix everything together until everything is thoroughly combined. Make sure there is room at the top of the bowl so that the oats have space to expand in the microwave.
3. Microwave the mixture on high for three minutes, stirring after 75 seconds and then again every 30 to 45 seconds until three minutes are up.
4. Top with your favourite toppings and enjoy immediately.
Topping options: natural peanut butter, chopped almonds, fresh berries and pumpkin pie spice.
Oats contain a group of antioxidants called avenanthramides, which may help lower blood pressure levels by increasing the production of nitric oxide. This gas molecule helps dilate blood vessels and leads to better blood flow, making oats a great heart-healthy option.
