Now there really is no excuse to skip breakfast! These nutritious oats are extremely easy to make, use what you probably already have in your kitchen and are ready to eat in 5 minutes. If bananas aren’t your thing, quick oats are great with any fruit, but we think the classic peanut butter and banana duo is too delicious to resist.
1 3/4 cups almond milk (or any milk substitute)
1 cup quick oats
1 large ripe banana, mashed
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
1 to 3 teaspoons honey, optional
Sliced bananas and chopped peanuts for serving
- In a medium saucepan set over medium heat, bring milk to a boil, watching carefully so that it doesn’t boil over.
- Stir in oats, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from heat and cover for a few minutes.
- Stir in mashed banana, peanut butter, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. Stir in honey, to taste, if desired. Top with sliced bananas, chopped peanuts, and additional cinnamon before serving.
