Not my nails, which really could use some, but the silver! I agree, looks much better : )

Breakfast this morning was a big bowl of whipped banana oats with strawberries and cottage cheese stirred in near the end of cooking, more banana on top (since we’re going out of town I didn’t want to leave it in the fridge that long!) and a halfsies split of almond butter and Biscoff Crunchy.

Polished it all off :mrgreen:

Served with some rasp-lemonade water. Matt is at the market, I’m packing and then heading to the bakery and then we’re racing out of town to make it to Charlotte by 7 tonight for a grand reunion with our friends (and a BabyHTP fun day tomorrow!)

Oh geez. I love almond butter! I’ve made both raw and roasted, and the roasted turned out so good! Creamy and perfect :) I’d never had it on oatmeal before until i saw yours- Delicious!

That sounds like a bowl of PB&J perfection. So glad I read your blog before I ate breakfast today. :)

I feel like no one has silver to polish anymore! I sure don’t!

isn’t biscoff really bad for you?

No (especially a tsp at a time). But it’s not a health food either.

OK, I gotta know–what is the cottage cheese like in oatmeal?!!? Is it savory or sweet?

7 KathEats April 28, 2012 at 8:47 am

Savory – but sweet because of bananas. It’s like cheesecake

Ohhhhh, _that_ makes sense! After I commented I started imagining all sorts of flavors and thought for sure that you’d respond and say it’s not savory or sweet, but more accurately, UMAMI! Whatever that means! ????

Sounds like a perfect breakfast! Oats+banana+almond butter are the tastiest things ever! I will try adding chia seeds to my oatmeal to make it creamier too, see how it works :)
+using jar as a bottle is so cute!

LOVE that bowl!! I need to get my hands on some Biscoff – I’ve only ever tried Trader Joe’s cookie butter…

Polished silver and a polished off bowl of oatmeal. :) Mmmmmmm! I have never even seen Biscoff, so it has yet to grace my life.

Your breakfast always looks so good and I love the mason jars! I bought a dozen last week to make water kefir and they work very well.

I love it whenever you use that spoon, I wonder where you bought it from?
It’s beautiful.

In the pictures it looks like overnight oats! lol

I have a question…I try and steer clear of white processed foods (white rice, white breads) and I try to focus on whole grains. I’ve noticed that when I have foods made with white refined flours my body is on some sugar high…does this happen to a lot of people? I don’t consume much added sugar in my diet so could this be a culprit as well? Thanks Kath, I really appreciate it :)

It definitely could be related to the white flour glycemic index
