Health Score:



  • 1 cup old fashioned oats  
  • 1 banana sliced, save a few for topping
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon  
  • pinch sea salt 
    • 3 cups water non-dairy milk or a blend of both
    • 2 tablespoons peanut butter or another type of nut butter

    Step by Step Instructions

    Step 1

    Add ingredients into a pot: Add oats, banana slices, chia seeds, cinnamon and sea salt to a pot. Add water and stir to combine. Heat over medium-high heat for 8-10 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed. Be sure to stir the oats several times while cooking to make sure the banana slices melt into the oats and the chia seeds don’t clump. You’ll know the oatmeal is done when all the liquid is absorbed and the oats are thick and fluffy.

    Step 2

    Serve: Portion oats into two bowls and serve with peanut butter, banana slices, and a sprinkle of chia seeds. Add a splash of non-dairy milk and/or maple syrup on top before serving, if desired.
