Microwave banana oatmeal that is packed with protein makes the perfect breakfast to keep you full of energy all morning. Plus it's ready in under five minutes, which is pretty much the most time I ever have in the morning lately.

The key to making this recipe really delicious is starting with a ripe, or better yet, really ripe banana. It can be almost black. This ensures that the oatmeal has plenty of natural sweetness so you don't need to add any extra sugar. It also makes it easy to mash and blend with the eggs. Now let's talk about the texture of this oatmeal. It isn't the texture of traditional oatmeal because of the egg. It's much creamier and has a bit of a custard like texture. I happen to like it but for some it may take some getting used to. Then just top it off with whatever you like - fresh fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, coconut, nut butters, etc. Delicious and good for you.

I have to admit I was skeptical since I've tried overnight oats several times and never been satisfied. I thought for sure I was going to want to add some brown sugar or sweetener but I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't add any extra sweetener at all and I thought it was quite good :)
