Banana Scramble

Posted by Jennifer (the student)

This recipe is simple to make. It is filling and healthy. Every time I make this dish I feel like I am having a treat. Usually I make a Banana Scramble once or twice a week. It can be topped with nuts, berries or even chocolate chips.

2 Bananas

6 Tbsp Rolled Oats (I buy bulk oatmeal)

4 Tbsp Almond Milk (or any other non-dairy milk)

2 Tbsp Peanut Butter (I use creamy)

2 tsp Coconut (finely shredded & unsweetened)

2 tsp Honey or Agave or Maple Syrup

½ tsp cinnamon

Pinch of nutmeg

Pinch of salt

Vegan Butter (Earth Balance)

Mix all ingredients together and mash in bananas with a fork. Preheat pan to medium to medium-high, coat with a small amount of vegan butter. Cook 3 minutes and then gently fold over and cook another 3 minutes, should be lightly browned.

This makes 2 large servings.

Overnight Chia

Posted by Jennifer (the student)

 I am posting this recipe because my friend Mickey asked me last weekend about Chia. I prepare this is recipe several times a week; I like it for breakfast because it is filling and provides me with lots of energy. In addition, it tastes good and is easy to prepare.

2 Tbsp Chia*

2 Tbsp Slivered Almonds

1 tsp  Shredded Coconut

½ cup Almond Milk (or any other type of milk)

½ tsp Honey or Agave Nectar

Use a small container with a lid. Combine all ingredients and let sit for about 10 minutes. Stir again and place in refrigerator over night.

Before eating, stir again and top with milk (I like hazelnut milk).

It’s also good with blueberries or sliced bananas

*Chia is available in package or bulk at Health Markets
