Oh oatmeal, you’re perfect served warm (or cold), you’re American Heart Association certified, filling, and very cost-effective! I heart you oatmeal. In fact, I made you taste even better with sweet, nourishing, and creamy banana milk. Oats, bananas, nuts, and maple syrup are a classic combination that warms my soul on a cold Ohio winter day. Forget those yucky artificial sweeteners and start cooking your oats in naturally sweet banana milk. It’s infused with dates and cinnamon, ummm heaven. Vegan Banana Milk Oats only take 10 minutes to cook and there’s not a microwave in sight, this is stovetop oatmeal :).
The suggested toppings I name for you include goji berries, pecans, pistachios (pictured are lightly salted), sprouted Granola (Go Raw brand), and bluuuuuuuuebs. Oh, and let’s not forget that oatmeal is not complete without a drizzle of organic maple syrup <3.
- 1 cup of old fashioned oats
- Banana Milk Ingredients
- 1 small frozen ripe banana (make sure it's sweet!)
- 2 pitted dates
- 1 and 1/3 cups of water
- Pinch of cinnamon
- Other Ingredients
- Another 1/3 cup of water (added at 6 minute mark)
- Suggested Toppings

- Place Banana Milk ingredients in a nutribullet/blender and blend until smooth.
- Then, combine the oats and Banana Milk in a small pot.
- Side Note: Stir often to avoid burning on bottom of pot.
- Cook the oatmeal on medium-low heat and at the 6 minute mark, add 1/3 cup water. Stir, and let the oats cook another 4 minutes.
- Place the mixture in a bowl and top with your favorites!
