EVOO complements the sweeter flavors of the bananas and blueberries nicely, creating a savory, almost umami taste. It also helps create a richer and more smooth texture; perfect for a hearty breakfast before skiing or hiking.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon EVOO
  • 2-3 dashes of salt
  • 2-3 dashes of pepper
  • 1/2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 1/4 cup shelled walnuts

Directions:

  • Combine water, salt and oatmeal in bowl and microwave for 2:15
  • Remove from microwave and add blueberries, banana and EVOO, stirring well
  • Return to microwave and run on high for 1:15
  • Remove and add walnuts, maple syrup and pepper to taste
