Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana steel cut oats in 15 minutes

The Instant Pot is a kitchen gadget that seems too good to be true. It claims to be able to replace several other appliances and cook time consuming things like sweet potatoes in only a few minutes.

It's not too good to be true. And for a working mom, it's a necessity. When I do the bulk of my cooking on the weekends, It's not unusual for me to use my Instant Pot four times each weekend day!

If you're not an Instant Pot owner already, at the very basic level, it's an electric pressure cooker that also has a saute mode and a slow cooking mode. You can cook rice, hard-boiled eggs, pasta dishes, soup, a whole chicken in it and more.

If that's not enough to convince you, maybe this recipe for chocolate peanut butter banana steel cut oats will. This recipe is my version I've perfected over a few months, using bits and pieces of other recipes. And of course, all of the ingredients can be found at Aldi.

I add a little bit of sugar to it when the bananas aren't super ripe. Otherwise, there's no sugar in it apart from the natural sugars in the bananas and what is in the peanut butter you get! It tastes kind of like those no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies without all the sugar! I love making this on the weekends because I can reheat it for breakfasts for the first part of the week...or dessert. Yeah, more like dessert for the first part of the week!



Ingredients:

1 cup steel cut oats
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 large mashed bananas
2 tablespoons brown sugar (if the bananas aren't very ripe)
3 tablespoons chia seeds
1 1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup peanut butter

Combine all ingredients except peanut butter in the Instant Pot. Cook on manual pressure for 9 minutes and allow a natural pressure release. Stir in the peanut butter.

Yes, read to your baby!

Babies are just lumps of cuteness that sleep, eat, cry and poop for months. They don't understand your words, but you still talk to them, right? While they don't understand the stories in books, it's still important to read to babies. Research finds that early exposure to language has a “profound influence on children's learning through life,” according to this NPR story from 2014 . There's nothing to lose by reading to a young baby, only something to gain. To read to a baby or child, you are close to them, which is a bonding experience too! The article states: "Just one-third of children in families below the poverty threshold are read to daily. That statistic improves as family income rises. But less than two-thirds of children in families making $95,400 for a family of four are read to daily, according to the 2011-2012 National Survey of Children's Health. As a result, children in poorer families lag behind in language processing as earl

How to be a good friend to a working mom

A while back, I wrote a post on the number one thing not to say to a working mom, "I could never have someone else raise my kid." But that's only part of the things I've seen and heard. Because working moms are so busy and stretched thin, their voices aren't the predominant ones out there despite 64 percent of mothers with children under the age of 6 working outside the home. The reality of it is that a majority of mothers work. Here's some of what it's like: It means choosing your battles . You only have so much time in your day and you want to maximize the time you have with your family. It means things like cleaning, exercising, cooking, self-care, doing your hair and makeup religiously can and will fall by the wayside. It means coming to terms with picking what is more important each day: the attention-starved dog, the pile of laundry, the sink full of dishes or your unshaven legs. It means being forgotten.
