Elvis’s Oatmeal

From The Oatmeal Artist


1/2 cup regular rolled oats
1 cup liquid (water and/or milk of choice)
1 very ripe banana
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 or 2 tbsp peanut butter
pinch of salt
  1. Bring 1 cup liquid (I use an equal mixture of almond milk and water) to a boil, add 1/2 cup regular rolled oats, and reduce heat to medium. (If you’d like to add flax or chia seeds, do so now.)
  2. Mash up HALF the banana and add to the oatmeal. Stir.
  3. Once more of the liquid has dissolved, add 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, a tiny pinch of salt, and 1/8 tsp cinnamon. Stir.
  4. Slice the remaining half of the banana into the oatmeal and swirl in the peanut butter (you can either stir it in completely or allow it to be in “clumps” like I do). If you’d like to add any extra ingredients (coconut oil, dried fruit, nuts, sunflower seeds), do so now.
  5. When you’re pleased with the consistency of the oatmeal, transfer to a bowl. Serve with another splash of your milk of choice and drizzle generously with honey. You could also top with nuts…or bacon.
