There’s Chocolate In My Banana Brulee

Please forgive me if there are a bazillion typos in this post.  My mind’s not exactly in top shape today.

I woke up at 2 this morning and could not fall back to sleep. Of course, the harder I tried, the more wide awake I became. So frustrating.

Does this ever happen to anyone else? If it does, what  do you do?

I definitely needed something to wake me up this morning.  Caffeine was a no-brainer.  I’m not a big coffee-drinker,which left one thing: Chocolate, of course! I took a rest day from running, which gave me ample time to cook a delicious, energy-packed breakfast:

Melted Banana Trick oatmeal.

Brownie Batter Oatmeal

  • I cooked 1 serving of oats (using the “Voluminous Oatmeal” trick) with water and a pinch of salt.
  • Later, I mixed it with about a tbsp of Extra Dark cocoa powder and some non-dairy milk.
  • Then, I added frozen, melted banana (using the famed melted banana trick), and a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  • I cooked it all up, then blended a bit (but I don’t always bother blending, as I like the chew).

(My favorite caffeinated green tea, pictured below,  helped!)
