Peanut Butter, Banana, and Oat Breakfast Milkshake

Who gets excited for breakfast?! Lordy, before bed every night and sometimes a week in advance I plan my breakfast out, and become extremely excited for morning to come. My typical breakfast rotation includes: steel cut oatmeal, granola and greek yogurt, soft boiled eggs and smoothies.

Smoothies are definitely my breakfast favorite, even though I rarely blog about them. I think it’s because I wake up when it’s still dark outside…I’m an early morning wild child (I don’t know what that means). This smoothie is filled with so much goodness. Honey + Oats + Ground Flax + Banana Goodness. Yes, please!

To begin, grind flax and oats together with a mortar and pestle (or with a spice or coffee grinder).

In a blender combine your choice of milk (I used 1% for this), banana, peanut butter, ground flax and oats.

Add in your delicious honey. Blend until no banana chunks remain, and the mixture is thoroughly incorporated.

Enjoy! This is so easy and delicious. I wish I had more…

  1. Love it!! I often do the same thing (plan my breakfast the night before). I think it helps me to not eat too late at night…I just think about and look forward to what I’ll have in the morning :)

    Your pb pretzel brownies looked yummy the other day too. They’re in my future, for sure! I always love what you post. I have a stack of your recipes at my house…some I’ve already made, and some I’m looking forward to making! Keep ’em coming!!

  2. Love the ingredients and I can taste the smoothie already.
    So glad to see you using hops honey jar. He was so proud to have is own.and I know he would be happy to see it passed on to his grandbaby :)

  3. Trying this ASAP! :D

  4. Oh wow! I was just thinking about how I needed a delicious breakfast smoothie to try tomorrow morning, and apparently you read my mind!! I am so making this.

  5. Yum! Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day too! I’d love to wake up to one of these!

  6. I’ve never really done the smoothie for breakfast thing, but this looks interesting and yummy enough to try out!

  7. If I hadn’t eaten my last banana this morning I would be making this tomorrow!!

  8. I LOVE breakfast and am exactly the same as you – I get excited the night before! I keep a stash of frozen bananas to make smoothies and am always looking for new recipes. Am thinking of experimenting with almond milk this week – i don’t like it on its own but can imagine it’s lovely in a smoothie.

  9. I love smoothies, the only problem is when I eat them for breakfast I don’t like drinking my coffee at the same time… too much liquid I guess? So I have figured out a strategy, smoothies for lunch, with a crunchy green salad! Then I get, “breakfast” twice a day!

  10. I love peanutbutter–and smoothies! This looks like the perfect combination to me for breakfast :)

  11. The first thing I think about when I wake up is what I’m going to have for breakfast, I’m one of *those* people :) Your smoothie looks awesome, love the combination of flavors!

  12. I’m an early morning wild child also! It just means we’re awesome. Obviously.

    This smoothie rocks my socks. Seriously…it has all my favorite things in life.

  13. Oooh, I could have one of these everyday and never get tired of them!

  14. This looks like a perfect post-workout shake :)

  15. I have been making a lot of smoothies for breakfast lately, and this sounds fab!

  16. Yum! This sounds so healthy and delicious!

  17. Yummy! I love a good breakfast smoothie!!

  18. It looks really good and I’m excited to give it a try!

  19. I am very excited about breakfasts as well. I like to have a small “party” in the morning to celebrate upcoming day. And I love milk shakes as well!

  20. Thanks for sharing! This looks delicious. I really like your blog and just discovered it. I am rounding up a small group of food bloggers to start a virtual baking club; it’s pretty low-key, and if you might be interested, let me know!

  21. Yum! I just made this smoothie for lunch and it was delicious! I didnt have flax so I used wheat germ. Very tasty and very filling!
