Goji Banana Mango Oats

Goji Banana Mango Oats is my recipe tribute to National Cereal Day, Nutrition Stripped style. Leave the processed cereals on the shelves and lets praise real “cereals” like oatmeal. This recipe is full of nourishing and fiber rich fruits such as mango, banana, and goji berries. Oatmeal is one of my absolute favorite grains to use as it’s so versatile to add into your diet; hot or cold cereal, cookies, pancakes, pie crusts, protein bars or “globes”, breads, crackers, granola, etc. (all homemade of course)!

This is one of my favorite go-to recipes for a quick and refueling breakfast especially after a hard workout, since it’s full of carbohydrates (both simple and complex) to refuel and help repair those muscles, grrr. You can tweak the recipe to make it a little more low-carb friendly by simply taking out or decreasing the amount of fruit, but I strongly suggest you try this one out first, it’s delicious! It reminds me of the tropics with the sweet flavors from the banana and refreshing mango, the slight tartness and chewiness from the goji berries, mixed with classic warm vanilla and cinnamon; it truly is the perfect flavor and texture combination to start the day (especially when your surroundings are not quite feelin’ like the tropics).
