Bananna Goodness Oatmeal

Updated on March 29, 2016
4 stars from 1 rating of Overnight Oats

Alright guys! I have been experimenting with oatmeals for a while now, and I have to say this is, by far, one of the best breakfasts I have tried! It's simple, easy, and uber delicious! Feel free to take this recipe, and add your own twist to it. This was inspired by other "hot" oatmeal recipes. Note you could turn this into an "overnight oatmeal" or make it with quinoa. But seriously, try it!

Cook Time

Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 10 min
Yields: Serves 1


  • 1/3 cup Quaker Oats, You can use any type of oats, and or quinoa
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Milk, You can use any flavored milk; Vanilla, Almond, Soy. Personally found coconut to work the best!
  • 1/2 cup Skim/0%/Low fat Milk
  • 1 small Banana, It can be any size. Do remember that the banana will act as the only sweetener to your oatmeal
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • A pinch Salt
  • 1 tbsp Walnuts, For topping
  • 1 tsp Unsweetened Coconut Shavings, For topping
  1. Heat up your stove to high. Pour in 1/2 cup coconut and 1/2 cup normal milk. If you would like you can use one cup of coconut milk, and disregard the cow milk. Depends on your taste. Wait till the milk heats up.
  2. Once the milk has heated up add the oats. I added 1/4 cup but 1/3 is fine! It depends on how thick you want your oatmeal to be. I've tried both 1/4 cup and 1/3 cup to produce the same consistency. Keep stirring on high until you see that it is starting to thicken. You don't want it to stick to your saucer pan!
  3. Once you've gotten the consistency you like, lower up the heat, and mash half the banana you have and mix it into the oatmeal. Leave the other half for the topping. Once you've gotten half the mashed banana incorporated in the oatmeal- pour it into a bowl.
  4. Cut the other half of the banana into small slices, add the tbsp of walnuts, and the coconut shavings, as well as the vanilla and salt. Honestly, the vanilla gives it a great taste but also makes it smell very good. It's not important but if you do have it lying around than I highly recommend it.
  5. Note: You can add other toppings as well such as almonds, cashews and or pumpkin seeds to list a few.
