Maple Banana Oatmeal Recipe

Hello, hello! Today I'm coming atcha with THE most delicious oatmeal of life. Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a bit, but it is really delicious. This has been my morning breakfast for weeks now and will continue to be my breakfast for the rest of the month. Then I'll get sick of it and move on, you know how it goes.

Disclaimer: I don't measure things out.

Here's what you'll need:
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (more or less depending on your sweet tooth)
  • 3/4 cup milk of choice (I use almond milk)
  • 1/4 cup quick cook steel cut oats
  • cinnamon to taste
  • pinch nutmeg 
  • any size banana you like!

Optional ingredients:
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons Chia Goodness or plain chia/flax/hemp/etc
  • nuts (which I didn't use)

 Combine milk, nutmeg, cinnamon and maple syrup in a pot over medium heat.


Just before it begins to boil, add in the coconut oil and chopped banana. Stir.


When it boils, add in oats and stir. Reduce heat and cover, stirring occasionally.


After 5 minutes, I let it sit for 1 minute. Then I put it in a boil.


Add Chia Goodness, the Original version tastes better with this recipe, and stir. I love Chia Goodness because of the combination of seeds that it contains, it gives the oatmeal an extra boost of protein and nutrition.


Then I top with blueberries and sprinkle with even more cinnamon! You can add any fruit you want or omit it completely.


There you have it my loves, Maple Banana Oatmeal! 

Let me know if you try out this recipe or a slightly different variation of it. Also, I'd love to hear your favourite oatmeal combinations.
