This peanut butter and banana oatmeal is probably my most frequent breakfast. If I don’t have the time to make something fancier, I will definitely make a big bowl of oatmeal. Healthy, quick and easy!
I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve made this recipe. I could make it asleep — actually I make it half-asleep in the mornings.
For me, oatmeals are the ultimate comfort food for my breakfast. They are warm, soft and just make me start my day with energy.
This recipe is way too easy and you don’t need any fancy ingredient at all. You get your old-fashioned oats, some milk, peanut butter, and bananas. The rest is just adding some spices and even chia seeds.
This oatmeal is a must if you are looking for a healthier breakfast choice and you don’t want to spend a lot of time. Just 20 minutes and you are ready to go.
If you want a nutty version of this recipe, you can try my honey and walnut hot oatmeal that is just as delicious.
- 1 cup oatmeal (I like to use rolled oats)
- 2 cups milk (any type you like)
- ½ tbsp vanilla extract
- ½ tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1 banana
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
- 1 tsp sweetener (I use stevia)
- Sliced almonds to sprinkle (optional)
- Honey (optional)
Heat the milk over medium heat and add the cinnamon and the vanilla extract.
When the milk is hot (but not boiling) add the oats and the chia seed. Stir while cooking to avoid burned oats at the bottom of you pan. Add sweetener to taste and serve when you get a creamy consistency.
Top with a banana cut into pieces, peanut butter, honey and almonds.
