Servings 1


  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp ground flax seed
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup non-dairy milk (e.g. almond, cashew, rice or soy)
  • 1 sliced banana*


  • In a cereal bowl, mix together the oats, ground flax seed and cinnamon.
  • Add the non-dairy milk and stir to combine.
  • Add sliced banana and/or your toppings of choice.
  • Eat immediately or let sit for a few moments to allow the oats to moisten.


*I often use Rip Essylstein's method of slicing bananas for cereal. He quarters the banana lengthwise and then makes horizontal slices. This creates lots of small pieces and ensures banana bites in each mouthful.
Use any toppings you like such as fresh or frozen berries, diced apple, raisins, flaked coconut, nuts, cocoa powder and maple syrup.
