Here’s a quickie – yummy afternoon pick-me-up oatmeal

Banana Nut Oatmeal
  • 1 c. oatmeal (not instant)
  • 1 c. water
  • 1 c. unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 T. brown sugar
  • 2 T. raisins
  • 1 T. sunflower seeds
  • 1 T. pecans
  • 2 t. sesame seeds
  • ½ banana, sliced

Mix everything in a pot (a small one).  Bring to a low boil.  Let simmer until the liquid is absorbed, the banana breaks down somewhat and the nuts, seeds and raisins swell and soften. It is SO delicious.

About Leila

I am a wife and mother. I am an Orthodox Christian. I am a yoga and fitness instructor and personal trainer. And I am a Syrian American with family living in Syria. My life is defined by my family, and right now, that means chronic worry and fear. Thank God for my faith and the support of my family and friends. I started this blog to talk about all sorts of things, but now I focus on Syria. Until this war is over, I, like all Syrians with a love for their country and their families, am a prisoner of this war, waiting to see what will be left after the dust settles. I pray for the safety of my family and for my country to survive and repair itself in the future. God willing.
