Banana Bread Oatmeal

Banana Bread Oatmeal

This recipe is so simple.  My daughter is an oatmeal fiend, so first thing in the morning I gather my oatmeal ingredients and put it on the stove to cook.  This allows me to let it cook while I sit down at the computer and put my daily plan together (before the kids wake-up).  By the time my daughter comes downstairs for breakfast the oatmeal is ready, thickened, and cooled down enough for her to eat.

I have MANY oatmeal variations, but this is the current favorite in our house…it feels like the favorite flavor rotates every few weeks.  Maybe it will become one of your new favorites…


1 cup rolled oats (We use Bob’s Red Mill’s Gluten Free Rolled Oats)

1 1/2 cups water

1 banana, sliced

1/4 tsp cinnamon

2 packets of Sweetleaf stevia

As I said, this recipe is so simple.  Pour all of the ingredients into a small pot on medium heat and bring it to a boil.  Once the oatmeal comes to a boil, turn the heat down to low and simmer until you reach your desired consistency.

Top with coconut sugar or maple syrup and chopped nuts (I used my Apple Pie Infused Pecans).  We also love to add some homemade almond milk (the plain version).
