Sweet Banana Almond Oatmeal

Recipe by  

"This oatmeal is warm, sweet, and lusciously filling, and it leaves me satisfied for hours! It is also incredibly versatile. Switch out any of the ingredients for whatever you fancy. I find it works well with some vanilla extract instead of almond and topped with crunchy peanut butter and a drizzle of honey! If you like your oatmeal just a bit thicker, use a little less milk or cook for a little longer."

  1. Mash half the banana in a saucepan. Whisk almond milk, honey, almond extract, cinnamon, and salt with the mashed banana until smooth; bring to a boil and stir oats into the mixture. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook at a simmer until the oats are tender and the moisture has been absorbed to your desired consistency, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer oatmeal to a bowl.
  2. Dice remaining banana half. Top oatmeal with banana and more cinnamon, as desired.

This definitely is just as the submitter states "warm, sweet, and lusciously filling"! I love the combination of flavors and it's a great way to use up that last little banana - lol. I did opt to do a microwave version of this to cut back on time and to add a little protein I added a dollup of almond butter over top! Perfect with a glass of OJ!

way too much almond extract.. It gave the banana an artificial flavor. Also, i didn't enjoy the cinnamon with the banana either.. I always make oatmeal for my daughter and myself, but we just couldn't eat this. i might try it again, minus the cinnamon and almond extract.

This can also be made with cow's milk and be cooked in the microwave. Just combine the ingredients and cook in the microwave for four minutes. Let it sit a minute or two and thicken. Most of the time, I use a ripe banana because it makes it sweeter and then I can omit the honey or any other additional sweetener. This is one of my most favorite breakfasts.

My two year old and I love this oatmeal recipe - she asks for MORE(!!!). We always seem to have an overripe banana laying around, and this is a great way to use it. This oatmeal is warm, delicious and easy. I've found the almond extract is a bit much, so have cut back on that but otherwise make as is (with cow's milk though) and add in almond butter at the end for extra protein and creaminess.

There was something about this oatmeal I just really didnt care for.I think it was the almond milk. Although, I use it in smoothies all the time, just never really cook with it. Only change was using vanilla extract. With the calories I shared the recipe and topped with some milk to mild the taste.
