Strawberry-Banana Oatmeal

From The Oatmeal Artist


1/2 cup regular rolled oats
1 cup liquid (water and/or milk of choice)
1 ripe or overripe banana
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
fresh strawberries
  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. I also add a spoonful of milled flax at the same time as my oats.
  2. Mash up the banana and add to the oatmeal. Stir.  (You could also mash half and slice the other half as a topping, if your banana isn’t too ripe!)
  3. Once more of the liquid has dissolved, add 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, a tiny pinch of salt, and 1/8 tsp of cinnamon. Stir.
  4. If you’d like to add any additional ingredients (coconut oil, raisins, sunflower seeds), do so now.
  5. When you’re pleased with the consistency of the oatmeal, transfer to a bowl. Top with 4-6 diced strawberries and serve with another splash of your milk of choice and any additional toppings (shredded coconut, nuts, etc.).
