I have been on a MAJOR oatmeal kick lately. Perhaps it’s because I have perfected the method for the creamiest, tastiest oatmeal! This oatmeal is also healthy, dairy-free and refined-sugar free.

The mashed banana gets cooked with the oatmeal and gives it a sweet taste and thick consistency . The maca adds a nutty/caramel flavor and is a superfood that is known to boost energy and libido. Maca is rich in vitamins B, C and E and high in calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium and amino acids. With all these benefits plus the delicious flavor it adds, why not add it to our oats?!
