Creamy Peanut Butter Oatmeal With Caramelized Banana
Living in a cold country has its bonuses and one of the most important bonuses are the comfort foods your body craves when its snowing outside and you wearing your fluffy socks with nowhere to go and nothing to do. LOVE those snow days.
My morning comfort food is oatmeal, hands down the most versatile food. The amount of experiments i made with oatmeal is a secret and only my husband is left with the painful memories of eating the weirdest combinations known to man kind. The things you do for love..
But peanut butter, caramelized banana and oats, i mean... you can't go wrong, right?

1 cup almond milk
