Sweet Banana Almond Oatmeal

Rated as 4.48 out of 5 Stars

"This oatmeal is warm, sweet, and lusciously filling, and it leaves me satisfied for hours! It is also incredibly versatile. Switch out any of the ingredients for whatever you fancy. I find it works well with some vanilla extract instead of almond and topped with crunchy peanut butter and a drizzle of honey! If you like your oatmeal just a bit thicker, use a little less milk or cook for a little longer."

  1. Mash half the banana in a saucepan. Whisk almond milk, honey, almond extract, cinnamon, and salt with the mashed banana until smooth; bring to a boil and stir oats into the mixture. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook at a simmer until the oats are tender and the moisture has been absorbed to your desired consistency, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer oatmeal to a bowl.
  2. Dice remaining banana half. Top oatmeal with banana and more cinnamon, as desired.

This can also be made with cow's milk and be cooked in the microwave. Just combine the ingredients and cook in the microwave for four minutes. Let it sit a minute or two and thicken. Most of the...

This oatmeal was super yummy and filling. It is also the first time I tried almond milk (yum). I reduced the almond extract to 1/4 tsp. and that was just right I thought.

My two year old and I love this oatmeal recipe - she asks for MORE(!!!). We always seem to have an overripe banana laying around, and this is a great way to use it. This oatmeal is warm, delic...

Made as is. Pretty good. A bit too much almond extract for me. Next time will use 1/2 tsp instead

Incredibly good!

I will preface my review by saying I did make changes. I felt that, as written, this was too much for one person for breakfast. As much as I would love to try almond milk, I can't justify the ex...

Delicious and easy. I made it without the almonds since I am allergic but it was awesome! Boyfriend loved it too. I will definitely be making this again.
