Coconut Banana Vanilla Oatmeal

Man oh man, do I love a good oatmeal.  This is one of my all time favorite oatmeal recipes.  I make a big batch of this weekly and the whole family will eat this throughout the week.




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.
