Banana Pie Oatmeal

Remember these? These double banana 'donuts' were so tasty in my mout-h, but they're a bit fussy. So, when a craving for warm banana hit at about 10 the other night, I searched for something quick and easy.

Healthy Slow Cooker had a recipe for Banana Pudding Oatmeal, but who has time to crock pot it so late at night? Not me.

So I altered the recipe for a fun dessert/snack and went from there.

Banana Pie Oatmeal
1 ripe banana, slice into bite-sized rounds
1/3 cup oats
2/3 cup milk (i used unsweetened vanilla soymilk)
1/2 t. vanilla extract
Dash of cinnamon
1 t. agave syrup (to taste)
1 TB sweetened shredded coconut
1 TB choc. chips (optional)

Making it happen:
1. Literally, stir everything together in a coffee cup or pot.
2. On the stovetop, cook for 5-7 minutes or until oats are large and cooked. In the microwave, heat for 2-4 minutes, watching carefully (milk tends to make oats spill over!).
3. Once heated, allow to cool for a few minutes. Sprinkle more coconut or chocolate chips on top for fun. The bananas will be warm and gooey. Enjoy this healthy and tasty treat!

Renew...with some tastiness!


  1. hmm....i didn't get to try this! i think that means that you need to make it again. :)
