At a nominal 360 calories (depending mainly on the size of the banana), this breakfast is a smart addition to any diet. It’s also high in fiber from the oats and bananas. Finally, the unsweetened almond milk and limited amount of sugar help to make this dish an even more diet-friendly, smart breakfast choice.
It’s creamy, crunchy, full of texture from the oatmeal and Malt-O-Meal, and has the trifecta of chocolate, peanut butter, and bananas. What a heavenly flavorful way to start the day!
This breakfast is very satisfying because it’s full of fiber from the bananas and oats. in addition, the generous amount of peanut butter will help you feel full after you savor this hearty breakfast. You won’t be left wanting to hit the vending machine or dig through the refrigerator for a tide-me-over by mid-morning.
Easy to Make
One measuring cup, two measuring spoons, a butter knife, bowl, and microwave are all you need to measure, mix, and cook this couldn’t-be-much-easier breakfast.
Part of a Healthy Lifestyle
This breakfast is one I “invented” and started eating daily back in February 2021. It has three of my very favorite things in it: peanut butter, chocolate and bananas. So delicious!
The real bonus is that it doesn’t have a ton of calories in it and it keeps me satisfied until lunchtime. Getting full, staying full, and not eating a ton of calories was very important to me during that time frame because both my wife and I were trying to lose some weight.
When I started eating breakfast nearly every day, I was able to watch the pounds come off regularly and rapidly. This was, of course, in conjunction with plenty of exercise and a sensible, calorie-conscious diet throughout the rest of the day, every day, too. But getting started on the Malt-O-Oatmeal foot daily was absolutely key for me. And it worked: on February 1, 2021, I weighed 195; I reached my goal weight of 165 just three months later, on May 1, 2021. I have been maintaining my weight at or below 160 ever since.
Yummy, crunchy, creamy, chocolatey peanut butter banana Malt-O-Oatmeal has been a key part of a significant lifestyle change for me. Not only do I feel good, feel all over my body the positive effects of carrying less weight around, I enjoy a scrumptious, filling breakfast every day. If you give it a go, I'm sure you'll enjoy it, too.
