Banana Oatmeal with Wild Blueberry Coulis


I've been making oatmeal lately.  It's an easy breakfast option, but needs a little something sweet and moist to taste just right.  Instead of the typical milk and brown sugar I've gone with natural sugar through fruit for the sweet and the moist.

Ingredients


2/3 cup whole oats
1 1/3 cup water, plus 1/3 cup water
1 banana, mashed
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon flax seeds
1/2 cup frozen wild blueberries

Directions


In a sauce pan bring water to a boil.  Add oats and bring back to a boil.  Reduce heat to low.

Stir occasionally for 3-5 minutes until oatmeal is cooked.

While oatmeal is cooking in a separate saucepan over high heat cook 1/3 cup water and blueberries.  Cook on high until a syrup forms in the water and the blueberries are warm. (2-3 minutes)

Add mashed banana, chia and flax to the oatmeal.

Place oatmeal in bowls and top with blueberry coulis. (serves 2)
