What makes this Peanut Butter Oat Banana THE perfect breakfast?

This Peanut Butter and Banana Oatmeal recipe is healthy and balanced in all macronutrients -protein, fats, and carbohydrates.

First, this oatmel is rich in plant protein. Indeed, both the peanut butter and the flax seeds are great sources of this macronutrient. Proteins are crucial for keeping and growing our muscle mass. This is in turn essential for maintaining a healthy and functioning body. Besides, if you want to boost the protein content of this breakfast, you can add some vegan protein powder.

Second, are the healthy fats, which are mainly found in the peanut butter. Fats play a vital role in numerous body functions, like cell growth and turnover, brain growth and development, and digestion. Moreover, healthy fats are responsible for keeping us full and satisfied for longer periods of time. This is why incorporating good, unsaturated fats into our breakfast is really important for our overall health.

Last but not less important, are carbohydrates. These are essential for keeping us energized and functioning all throughout the day. What is great is that this recipe contains both simple and complex carbohydrates. The first ones are contained in the bananas and are perfect to give us immediate energy. The latter ones, found in the oats, are good to make us feel good and full for many hours!
