Not just for breakfast! A fun and healthy alternative to your pancakes. You can even enlist the kids to help mix! Oats add fiber and when topped with almonds, you are getting good fats to round out the meal.
1 BANANA, RIPE (ripe = sweet)
3/4 CUP ROLLED OATS
1/4 CUP UNSWEETENED APPLE SAUCE
1 TSP VANILLA
1/2 TSP CINNAMON
1/4 CUP SLICED STRAWBERRIES

Top with fruit and almonds – can be made in advance or served immediately! You can also top with a smear of peanut butter (read the label to look for added sugars). Recommended Serving: 2-4” cakes.
