Coconut Banana Vanilla Oatmeal
- 2 teaspoons coconut oil
- 4 ripe bananas, sliced
- 2 tablespoons vanilla paste
- cinnamon (as much or as little as you'd like)
- 2 tablespoons agave syrup
- 2 cups Quaker oatmeal
- 2 cups coconut milk
- 1 1/2 cup water
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
In a sauce pan, heat up coconut oil over medium heat. Add your bananas, vanilla paste, cinnamon, and agave. Saute until the bananas begin to breakdown and until everything caramelizes...about 2-3 minutes. Stir the whole time and then remove from heat.
Cook your oatmeal: Boil 2 cups milk, and 1 1/2 cups water in a pan. Stir in 2 cups of oats. Cook on med-low heat for 5 mins.
Combine the cooked oatmeal, with the sauteed banana mixture. Add in your chia seeds and stir mixture. Eat right away or let it cool, refrigerate and enjoy it later.
*I usually scoop desired servings into mason jars and put them in the refrigerator. That way my hubby has a quick breakfast that he can grab and go. Sometimes we eat this cold straight out of the jar, and other times we will heat it and then eat it.
