This classic Creamy Stovetop Banana Oatmeal recipe uses rolled oatmeal, banana and a touch of maple syrup. So easy and delicious!
True story, in college I ate oatmeal for breakfast every single day. Like, literally every day. What can I say it’s cheap, filling, healthy, and delicious! My go-to was to throw some oatmeal in the microwave and then top it with globs of peanut butter, chocolate chips, and apple slices. I guess overall not much has changed since I definitely still eat oatmeal on the regular (globs of nut butter included) but luckily I have upped my game at least somewhat since then. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not throwing shade at good ol microwaved oatmeal, but stovetop is where it’s at! I know it takes longer but trust me it’s worth it! It gets so much more creamy and thick than microwaved oatmeal. Plus adding in mashed banana adds even more creaminess along with the perfect amount of sweetness. This Creamy Stovetop Banana Oatmeal has been my new go-to oatmeal recipe for quite some time now and I know you’re going to love it too!
To make this Creamy Stovetop Banana Oatmeal you will need:
A few notes:
1. You can replace the water with more nut milk or vice versa, I just like the combo. Using only water doesn’t get the oats as creamy as I like and using only nut milk breaks down the oats and makes them more mushy than I prefer.
