The ultimate healthy breakfast recipe, this peanut butter banana oatmeal is creamy, voluminous and will keep you full all morning long! Plus it only takes about 10 minutes to make.  Each bowl has around 370 calories, 17 grams of fiber (woot!), and 11 grams of protein.

Let’s start the year with one of my absolute favorite oatmeal recipes that has somehow never made it to the blog until now — peanut butter banana chia oatmeal.

Peanut Butter Banana Chia Oatmeal

Ingredients
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 banana, sliced (save a few for topping)
  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 3 cups of water, non-dairy milk or a blend of both
  • 2 Tablespoons peanut butter or another type of nut butter


Instructions
  • Add oats, banana slices, chia seeds, cinnamon and sea salt to a pot. Add water and stir to combine. Heat over medium-high heat for 8-10 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed. Be sure to stir the oats several times while cooking to make sure the banana slices melt into the oats and the chia seeds don’t clump. You’ll know the oatmeal is done when all the liquid is absorbed and the oats are thick and fluffy.
  • Portion oats into two bowls and serve with peanut butter, banana slices, and a sprinkle of chia seeds. Add a splash of non-dairy milk and/or maple syrup on top before serving, if desired.


Notes
  1. I like making two servings so I can save one for the next day, but if you don’t like eating leftover oats and are only cooking for yourself, simply cut all ingredients in half. For reheating you can use the stovetop or microwave. Just add the portion you’re going to eat and a splash of water or milk and heat until warm. In the microwave it shouldn’t take more than 30 – 60 secs.
