Oats in the morning are a staple but they can become quite grey and bland over time. However, you still want to stick to your breakfast and health goals and flavour helps with that. Our banana split oat breakfast packs a punch of flavour but also adds even more nutrients to your daily energy. It’s still low in calories and adjusted for your needs, but importantly, you won’t get bored and neither will the rest of the household if they try it.

Bananas pack a punch of magnesium and potassium which are very important for the body and help with preventing muscle cramping when you exercise. Oats provide some protein and carbs along with nuts which also include healthy fats. Honey is great for the immune system and adds the sweetness you’ve been looking for. Each serving is 259 calories and is a great light breakfast with enough nutrients for your day. Add a scoop of protein if you feel like it.
