Creamy Banana Oatmeal Bowl

This Creamy Banana Oatmeal bowl is sweet, heart healthy and nutrient rich. It is the perfect start to a morning.  Just five ingredients: steel cut oats, bananas, cinnamon, ground flax seed and raisins and you are on your way.

 

Ingredients for Creamy Banana Oatmeal Bowl

 

Start by heating water on high in a sauce pan until it comes to a rolling boil.

 

Water boiling in a pan

 

Slowly add the steel cut oats.

 

Give a stir, cover the pan and then turn the heat down to simmer.

 

While the oats are cooking, chop the bananas and measure the cinnamon,  ground flax seed and raisins. I love these ingredients for adding antioxidants, omega 3s, dietary fiber and iron to the oatmeal bowl.

 

After about 20 minutes of simmering, they should be cooked. Cook more or less to reach your  desired consistency.

 

Cooked Steel Cut Oats

 

 

Now stir in the remaining ingredients (bananas, raisins, cinnamon and ground flax seed) or arrange them on top of individual bowls.

 

Enjoy this creamy and naturally sweet, nutritious and satisfying bowl for breakfast or an afternoon snack. And customize it to make it your own with

 

FRUIT such as diced apples or mangoes, berries, and chopped figs or dates

 

COCONUT FLAKES

 

COCOA POWDER

 

NUTS such as pecans or walnuts

 

SEEDS such as pumpkin, hemp or chia

 

Here are a few of my favorite toppings.

This is what I call a perfect start to the morning!

The recipe serves 4 people. Cooking for yourself? Make this big batch and store it in the fridge to eat throughout the week. It thickens as it cools so, to reheat, you might like to add a bit more water or plant-based milk, give it a stir, and cook it in a saucepan or microwave until nice and warm.

 

What about nutrition? This breakfast bowl is:

 

LOW IN CALORIES

 

LOW IN FAT

 

HIGH IN DIETARY FIBER

 

The oatmeal bowl has 220 kcal per serving.

 

That’s just about half the amount in a bagel with cream cheese (436 kcal). It has almost twice the amount of dietary fiber (7 g vs 4 g) and no cholesterol at all (0 mg vs 27 mg). You will find more nutrition information in the notes below the recipe.

 

And you can make it for $0.43 per serving.
