Units Scale
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup almond milk (or any type of milk)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 spotty ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • Toppings of choice (fresh fruit, nut butter, nuts, seeds, etc.)


  1. Combine all ingredients in a small pot.
  2. Transfer the pot to a stovetop and cook over medium-high heat. Frequently stir the oatmeal so it does not stick to the bottom of the pot. Cook until thick and creamy, about 7-8 minutes. The longer you cook, the thicker and creamier it will become.
  3. Transfer oatmeal to bowl(s). Add your favorite toppings, like fresh fruit, nut butter, granola, nuts, seeds, and more. Enjoy!


  • How to make them gluten-free: If you follow a strict gluten-free diet, check to make sure your oats are certified gluten-free.
  • Oatmeal mix-ins: Protein powder, cocoa powder, nut butter, nuts, or seeds.
  • Oatmeal toppings: Fresh fruit, nut butter, granola, or dark chocolate.
  • How to store leftovers: This banana oatmeal is best enjoyed immediately after making it. I do not recommend storing leftovers. However, if needed, you can store them in a sealed container inside the refrigerator.
