Banana Bread Oatmeal

Hi everyone!

One of my favorite things to eat is oatmeal. I love alllll kinds! You've probably already seen my Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal recipe, which is phenomenal, but if you're just looking for a single serving recipe, this one is pretty good.

There are only about 300-350 calories depending on if you use nuts or sweeteners. And it takes less than 10 minutes to make.

Banana Bread Oatmeal

1 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
1/2 cup old fashioned or rolled oats
1 banana, mashed
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp maple syrup or molasses (optional: the banana adds a good amount of sweetness so you can omit extra sweeteners if you want)
pinch of nutmeg
pinch of salt

Boil 1 cup of milk on the stove, then add in oatmeal and reduce to medium heat. Add in mashed banana after a couple minutes. Stir to keep oats from sticking to the bottom of the pan. When mixture is thickening, add in the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine. It only takes about 5 minutes until the oats are cooked. You can add in walnuts like a traditional banana bread, raisins, shredded coconut, etc. Feel free to be creative! Mine is topped with walnuts and flax seeds in the photo.
