Banana Oats Recipe
Below is a simple banana oats recipe to add a little something extra to your daily oats – feel free to adjust to your taste buds and enjoy.
This serving of oats is what I would generally have but could be split into two bowls if you prefer smaller serves.
- 2/3 cup Gloriously Free Oats
- 1 large banana (2 small)
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1.5 cups water
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- One tablespoon almond butter (optional)
- Approx 1 tablespoon each of Vegan butter and sugar (or maple syrup) for caramelising banana *
- Chopped walnuts, cinnamon, maple syrup for toppings **
- Put water and oats in a saucepan and bring to a simmer
- Mash ½ large banana (or one small)
- Add cinnamon, nutmeg, mashed banana, maple syrup and almond butter (optional) to the oats
- Simmer oats for 5 minutes and remember to stir regularly
- Whilst oats are cooking, caramelise the remaining banana by heating vegan butter and sugar in a non-stick pan, adding banana and cooking for a minute or so on each side
- Once oats are done, transfer to a bowl and top with the caramelised banana, walnuts, more cinnamon and maple to your liking
* I found I had a hit/miss experience caramelising banana (you could also try using less butter than sugar, or even dry frying), or you could just add a plain banana or other fruit
** Toppings/oat ingredients are so interchangeable, e.g. feel free to add chopped walnuts into your oats or add additional toppings (the more the better I say!!)
