Meatfree Monday: Banana Berry Oatmeal

     I love breakfast for dinner. In the summer, I also love light dinners. It's just to hot to eat heavy things. This oatmeal was filling, but not like a big greasy hamburger or heavy pasta would be. It was just satisfying and full of fruit which is a good healthy alternative to our normal pancakes for dinner on Sunday nights!
     This photo was taken from David Zinczenko's cookbook. My photo turned out totally unappetizing! The berries I used were frozen and ran into the oatmeal making it a funky color. The flavor was fantastic, and this photo shows how delicious the dish really is!

1 egg
1 cup milk
3/4 cup quick oats
1/2 cup mixed berries
1 Tbl chopped pecans or almonds
1 tsp vanilla protein powder
1 tsp ground flaxseed
1/2 banana, sliced
1 Tbl plain or vanilla yogurt

  • Whisk everything but the banana and yogurt. 
  • Cook until set (or microwave for a couple minutes until set)
  • Let cool for a minute or two. 
  • Top with banana and yogurt.
Sorry no features of the week this week or next. These posts were schedule to post automatically. 


  1. I've never cooked anything with protien powder in it.

  2. That is one of the best looking bowls of oatmeal I have ever seen. Yummy!

  3. I guess the protein powder is how you get an all in one turkey bacon on the side when you eat this oatmeal:)
