1/2 c. oatmeal

1 t. chia seeds

1 c. almond milk

pinch of salt

1/2 banana

Put oatmeal, chia seeds, almond milk, and salt in pot and bring to a boil. Then, turn down heat to medium and cook until oats are soft and liquid is absorbed. Meanwhile, place banana and peanut butter in blender. Once oats are cooked, place 1/2 of the cooked oats in bowl, and the other half in the blender with the bananas and oatmeal. Blend until smooth. Then put this mixture on top of the oatmeal in the bowl. Finally sprinkle with chocolate chips and buckwheat groats.
