  • In a small pot, bring water to a boil with a pinch of salt.
  • Stir in rolled oats. Lower heat to a low simmer. Stir occasionally for about 10 minutes, until the oatmeal has thickened.
  • During the last few minutes of cooking, stir in banana, peanut butter, and maple syrup.
    If you like a milder amount of peanut flavor, stir in 1 Tablespoon. If you like a more robust peanut flavor, use 2 Tablespoons of peanut butter.
    For prettier oatmeal, set aside a few slices of banana to use as garnish at the end.
  • Once it has reached your desired level of thickness, taste & add more salt or maple syrup, if desired.
    Remove the oatmeal from the stove & put it into two bowls. Add a splash of non-dairy milk onto each one (optional). If you have any reserved banana slices, use them as garnish on each bowl.


It's easy to personalize this oatmeal to suit your tastes. 
  • Replace peanut butter with the nut butter of your choice
  • Add more maple syrup, a dash of cinnamon, and/or ⅛ to ¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract for more of a dessert vibe
  • Add a splash of non-dairy milk to the finished bowl for extra creaminess
  • Finish with a small handful of peanuts on top of each bowl
Store leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator. It will keep for 3 to 5 days. When you're ready to reheat, add a splash of water or non-dairy milk. Stir & reheat in the microwave.
