Easy Banana Oatmeal (2 Ways)


An old friend requested this recipe from me after she discovered my page. I can't believe I haven't posted this recipe yet. I make this recipe ALL the time! It's one of my go-to oatmeal recipes.

Whenever I have ripe bananas (spotted and a bit soft) I make a few jars of oatmeal and eat it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner the next few days. It's easy and quick. And personally, I don't need to add any sweeteners, as I find the bananas and cinnamon add enough flavor and sweetness.


Get creative! Layer it with chia pudding or your favorite nut-butter! Add in your favorite fruits, dried or fresh! Eat it cold or warm. And for a special treat, pair it with nice-cream while it's warm!!! (Favorite breakfast of all time!)


Easy Banana Oatmeal (2 ways)


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 banana for decoration optional
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp coconut milk optional


Method #1

  1. In a small pot, bring 2 cups of water to a boil
  2. Add in the rolled oats and cinnamon and stir
  3. When most of the water is absorbed add the coconut milk
  4. Turn off the heat and mash in the two bananas and mix well

Method #2 overnight oats

  1. In a mason jar, mix one cup of rolled oats with 1 cup+2 tbsp of plant-based milk (almond, coconut, rice, any.) and cinnamon
  2. Add in the mashed bananas and mix well
  3. Eat it right away, or for better taste, let it chill in the fridge for 4 hours or so.

Toppings: Cacao nibs, almond butter, peanut butter, dates, dried cranberries, goji berries, etc.

*If you want your oatmeal to be creamy, then add the oats with the water from the beginning.

*Feel free to add maple syrup, date sugar, or coconut sugar, if you want it to be sweeter.
