These oats are a fun way to change up your breakfast routine. They are so easy and keep your hunger at bay well into the afternoon.
Here are some health benefits to this delicious recipe-
Bananas- Rich in potassium, iron and magnesium, and as we have already learned, a prebiotic that supports gut health.
Chia seeds- Though she be but little, she is fierce. Chia seeds offer up a healthy dose of fiber, protein, omega-3 fats and minerals, and support heart health.
Oats- Oats are a gluten free grain that are high in fiber and protein and contribute to lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels. They keep your energy levels stable and your tummy full
