This Stuff is the Splits


I’ve been dreaming about this since last night.


What better to start off the last working day of the week than with a fun breakfast?

oatsplitI split one banana in half and laid it in a bowl.

Then I cooked one serving of oatmeal (1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt) and then mixed in some cinnamon.

Then I put the cooked oatmeal on the banana, and added my toppings:

  • 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon raisin pb
  • 1/2 Tbsp slivered almonds
  • strawberries, raspberries
  • 1 tsp honey


I just could not stop taking pictures of this – it looked so pretty! Almost too good to eat  :)

I love real banana splits, but this is a pretty close rival. I’ll have to do this again when I have some fresh pineapple!

Off to work!

Any fun plans for this weekend?

  5. Wow, what a great looking breakfast. :) And I’m going to my g-parents cottage on a lake this weekend and I CANNOT wait – I’m actually kind of flabbergasted that it’s only Thursday…

  6. that looks great :D what a way to start the morning! I am planning on a banana split-type breakfast over the weekend but that’s about as far as I have gotten in making plans :P

  12. an oatmeal split is simply genius!

  13. OMG that looks so good! I’m going to have to write all these oatmeal ideas down for when it’s finally cool enough to eat it here again. It’s usually already 90 degrees by 8 a.m.! It’s ridiculous!

    I have lots of fun plans, but nothing too crazy. I live downtown so there’s lots of festival-type stuff to do and lots of fireworks to watch. Can’t really beat that since I don’t even have to drive to get to it!

    What are your plans?
