Banana Nut Bread Oats – The Bite Me Kitchen

The Bite Me Kitchen by Rose Cameron is one of my favorite sites for recipes.  I came across this site a few months back, thanks to her other blog site (Eternal Recess) and have since formed a friendship with Rose that I value tremendously.  Rose has been a great source of inspiration and encouragement.  She is always one of the first persons to comment on status updates, both personally and on the CTER Facebook Fan Page(go like it, there are 800 others who already have.)

I Will Race Fast For This

Rose was kind enough to post directly to my timeline last night a recipe for Quick Banana Bread Oats.  This has worked perfectly into my current infatuation with banana bread.  For workouts I have been recovering with a Banana Bread smoothie so I was all over this recipe when I saw it last night.  This morning after cranking out hill repeats and 800 meter repeats I was ready for some oats and already having this recipe on my laptop I gave it a whirl. When I say that this is going to be a staple in the rotation I am saying it with EMPHASIS.  This hit every spot you would want.  There was texture and flavor and a very easy recipe to follow.  With Rose’s permission I am re-posting the recipe here for you, but  be sure to stop by The Bite Me Kitchen blog and say hello.  While you are there check out what I will be lavishing in after Ironman Arizona: Raw Chocolate Coconut Pie

QUICK BANANA BREAD OATS

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1/2 cup steel cut oats
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 ripe medium bananas (1 mashed and 1 sliced)

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt & dash nutmeg
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract

    Heya superb blog! Does running a blog like this take a great deal of work?

    I have virtually no understanding of coding but I was hoping to start my own blog soon.
    Anyhow, if you have any recommendations or techniques for
    new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject but I just had to ask.
    Thank you!
