If you like the idea of eating only what’s left in your pantry, this week of posts is for you.

Today is the the first full day of clean-out-your-pantry week.  Before I cooked anything, I went through my pantry and threw out things that were severely out of date.  Apparently, there was a time in my life that I thought I was going to make pancakes every day.  I hate throwing away unopened boxes of things, but it is refreshing knowing that everything in there is now edible!

PantryYou might notice that I have enough K-cups to last until the apocalypse.  A friend found them on clearance in a town where K-cups must not be cool.  They are now mine.

In my cleaning out, I found a large box of rolled oats and decided it was time to foray into the world of oatmeal.  I’ve tried it a few times and wasn’t a fan, but I stumbled upon an idea I thought I might actually like.  Here’s what’s in it:

  • 1/2 cup of oats
  • 1/2 cup of almond milk
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tablespoons of peanut butter (I used my homemade peanut butter)
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla flavor
  • 1/2 packet of stevia (optional)

Cook the oats with the 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup almond milk.  Bring the almond milk and water to a boil, then add the oats.  Turn the temperature to medium and cook for five minutes.

While the oats are cooking, use a blender to combine 1/2 banana and the 2 tablespoons of peanut butter.

When the oats finish cooking, add 1/2 cup of the cooked oats to the blender.  Blend the oats, banana, and peanut butter together.

Put the mixture in the blender in a bowl and top with slices of the other 1/2 banana.
