Side Splits

It’s FrIdAy!!!

I don’t know about you, but I’m more than ready for this 3 day weekend – plus, tomorrow is our wedding anniversary :) We have fun dinner plans, and I can’t wait to start the celebration!

We’re running a bit low on groceries for the week, but I did have a perfectly ripe banana for a banana split.

After trying a few different nut butters on this, I’ve decided that the Dark Chocolate Dreams PB&Co Peanut butter is the best banana split topping. It’s sweet, melty, and chocolate.

These are so easy and fun to eat!

The oats are basic:

1/2 cup oats

1 cup water

pinch salt

cinnamon

 

Then I just layer those into a split banana, add toppings, and dig in.

Oatmeal. Banana. Chocolate pb. Fruit. Coffee.

I think I’m ready to get my Friday going :)

 

Do you have fun Memorial Day weekend plans?

    That banana split looks absolutely incredible! I’m definitely having food envy looking at it this morning. I hope you and Nick have an amazing weekend! My bf and I are going to Reno for the long Memorial Weekend to visit friends and go hiking and biking (and hopefully try our luck at the tables!). Have fun!! :)
