  • Yield: 1-2 servings 1x


Healthy and delicious banana bread oatmeal perfect for an energizing breakfast. Vegan, gluten-free, oil free, wfpb, refined sugar free.


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/21 cup non-dairy milk of choice
  • 23 very ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla, or 1/2 vanilla bean
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar, or maple syrup


  • pinch of nutmeg
  • dried banana chunks


  1. Place a non-stick sauce pan or frying pan over medium heat. Slice 1 banana into coins about 1/2 inch thick and place evenly on the pan. Sprinkle 1 tbsp of coconut sugar or maple syrup over banana slices, and let caramelize (about 1-2 minutes). Sugar should lightly brown and bubble, but be sure to flip coins and move around with spatula to avoid burning. You can add 1 tsp of coconut oil if desired, but it will caramelize perfectly without. Once caramelized, remove from pan and reserve on the side.
  2. In the same pan, mash 1-2 ripe bananas with a spatula, then add add oats and water and bring to a boil then lower heat to medium. Stirring constantly, cook until oats are soft and tender and water is absorbed. If you’d like to adjust texture, add more water as you see fit.
  3. Remove from heat and add non-dairy milk, chopped walnuts, cinnamon, vanilla and stir.
  4. Serve oatmeal and top with caramelized bananas and additional chopped walnuts.
