Healthy Banana Chocolate Oatmeal Recipe

The Sweet Breakfast Treat That Can Help You Lose Weight

When it comes to weight loss, many celebrity trainers like Bob Harper and Gunnar Peterson agree: it's best to eat carbs in the morning. When you front load the morning with healthy complex carbohydrates, you have more time to burn them off and use carbohydrates for their intended purpose (as fuel) instead of the body storing them as fat.

Quick to prepare and high in fibre, rolled oats are a nutrient-rich breakfast that offer the calories and fibre your body needs to support your goals and stay full all morning long. If you've been enjoying this classic breakfast most mornings, you're probably ready to stray from your go-to toppings — and that's where this easy and sweet combination comes to the rescue. Even with a huge list of dessert-inspired ingredients like banana, peanut butter, dark chocolate and brown sugar, this easy bowl of oatmeal weighs in at just 13 grams of sugar.
