My goal for the weekend was to create a wholesome, good-for-you, easy oatmeal recipe with little ingredients and whole lot of taste. One that had some serious staying power. I also wanted something that I could throw some peanut butter into because well… duh.

Fact: There is no such thing as “too much peanut butter.”

The truth is, I’m pretty good with breakfast but lately I’ve been slacking in that department. I’ve just been grabbing a protein cookie each morning.

This oatmeal is so easy to throw together. All you need is 1 saucepan, 10 minutes, and a few healthy ingredients. Start with the base ingredient.. the star of the show: oats. We’re using old-fashioned rolled oats for this recipe, not quick oats. What else is hiding in this oatmeal? We’ve got peanut butter, chia seeds, almond milk, vanilla extract and cinnamon. And to sweeten it up, naturally, we’re using ripened bananas. But if your bananas aren’t ripe you can add in a few Tablespoons of honey.

The batch makes 5-6 servings depending on how much you want. It’s perfect to make over the weekend and divide up in containers for the week, wether it’s for breakfast for a pre/post workout snack. One bowl keeps me full for hours and that my friends makes me happy.

My 2 taste testers we’re quite happy with the results (thanks hubs & Jess!) But now Chris is peanut buttered out…? I’m currently questioning our marriage.

Happy eating!

Peanut Butter Banana Chia Oatmeal

oatmeal

  • Prep Time: 10m
  • Cook Time: 10m
  • Total Time: 20m

Ingredients

  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2 ripe bananas, sliced*
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter, or any nut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk

Instructions

  1. Add oats, banana slices, chia seeds, cinnamon, vanilla extract, honey, and peanut butter into a medium saucepan. Add almond milk, water and stir to combine. Cook over medium-high heat. Cook for 8-10 minutes; stirring the oats several times to avoid clumping. You'll know the oatmeal is done when all the liquid is absorbed and the oats are thick and fluffy.
  2. Serve in bowls with peanut butter, banana slices, cinnamon, honey or chia seeds. If preparing these for the week, divide evenly into 5 containers (toppings should be added the day of.) Stays fresh for up to 1 week when stored in the refrigerator.

Additional Notes

  1. I prefer to use ripe bananas for this recipe; if yours aren't ripe enough, add 1-3 Tablespoons of honey.
