Superfood Oatmeal

For a great start to the day or a tasty healthy dinner when you don't feel like cooking a full meal, a hearty bowl of oatmeal with all the trimmings is perfect.  A drizzle of balsamic vinegar adds an extra layer of sweet/tangy flavor and helps you get a good dose of pro-biotics in your daily diet.

1/2 cup rolled oats (we prefer steel cut or old fashioned)

1 3/4 cup water or milk

Salt to taste

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon brown sugar or 1 teaspoon honey

1 tablespoon Vanilla or Cinnamon Pear Balsamic Vinegar

1 small banana, sliced

2-3 tablespoons Butter Olive Oil

2 tablespoons Greek yogurt

1 tablespoon peanut or cashew butter (or use our Homemade Peanut Butter)

1 tablespoon pepitas or sunflower seeds

1/4 cup pomegranate arils

Cook the oatmeal according to package directions.  Meanwhile, heat a non-stick skillet to medium.  Add the sliced bananas and cook until barely carmelized (or they'll start to fall apart); flip and cook on the second side.  Set aside while the oatmeal cooks.

When the oatmeal is done, stir in the cinnamon, brown sugar and vinegar.  Top with the bananas and remaining ingredients.

Serves 1, but you can easily double this for 2 people.
