‘Healthier’ Banana Bread Oatmeal

Oatmeal is a wonderful breakfast and is so versatile. This recipe in particular is gluten free, dairy free, vegan friendly & free of refined sugars! The best part? It tastes delicious! This recipe creates a single serving but can easily be doubled for you and someone else to share! Learn how to make it below

Yield: one serving (/bowl) of oatmeal
Preparation: 3 min.
Cook time: 3 min.

1/2 c. rolled oats
1/2 c. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 tbsp. honey
1/2 tbsp. vegan butter
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. stevia
1/2 banana, sliced
[Optional & NOT dairy free/vegan/refined sugar free]: 1/2 tbsp. mini chocolate chips


Combine the oats, milk, honey, butter, cinnamon & stevia in a bowl. Microwave for 2 1/2 – 3 minutes. Top with banana slices & chocolate if desired. Enjoy!

The ingredients I used produced a bowl that was 270 calories, 310 including the chocolate chips. If you use different brands, your bowl may be slightly different in calories.

Oatmeal is extremely versatile and forgiving! Almond milk can be subbed for any non-dairy or dairy milk. Honey can be replaced with maple syrup or even with 1/2 tbsp. regular sugar. If important to you and your diet, please note that some of these changes would make the recipe no longer dairy free, vegan, or refined-sugar free.
