This healthy oatmeal recipe is for 1 person, yes. You! If you are making this for other people, just double the recipe.

Ingredients

  • Boil together in a small pot
  • 1/2 cup Rolled Oats

  • 1 cup Almond Milk

  • 1 Banana (sliced or mashed)

  • Dash of Vanilla Bean Paste

  • Dash of Cinnamon

  • Dash of Honey

  • Add on top of your oatmeal (optional)
  • Dash of Pure Maple Syrup

  • 1 TBSP Chia Seeds

  • 1/2 TBSP Almond Butter

Directions

  • Take your smallest pot that you have and add the rolled oats and plant-based milk of your choosing (mine is Almond Milk).
  • Mash or slice up one banana and add it to the pot.
  • Then add your seasoning of vanilla bean paste, cinnamon and honey.
  • Boil until you are happy with the consistency (some folks like it watery, some others like it thick).
  • Transfer to a bowl and add your protein toppings of chia seeds and almond butter. Also, totally optional, but to make it a bit sweeter, a small dash of pure maple syrup from Massachusetts, Vermont, or Canada does the trick.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • If you want more fruits, add some more on top of your finished oatmeal. I like to add fresh berries (strawberry, blackberry, blueberries).
  • The chia seeds and almond butter are packed with protein. If I am lazy, I’ll only add the chia seeds. If I’m really good that morning, I’ll add some almond butter, too.
  • If you don’t have vanilla bean paste that you can get in a small jar at your local grocery store, you can always use vanilla extract instead.
  • The pure maple syrup I use in my oatmeal is from Massachusetts.
