Banana Bread in a Bowl

From Chocolate-Covered Katie

Ingredients

 

1 banana (I use a frozen one, but you don’t have to)
1-2 tablespoons walnuts (optional)
1 cup milk of choice
1 cup flake cereal, such as Arrowhead Mills’ spelt flakes (You can use a gluten-free cereal)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions

Put all the ingredients into a blender, and blend. Now eat! This gets thicker, the longer it sits.

Oh, and cinnamon or chocolate chips make nice additions. But then again, chocolate chips make a nice addition to anything!

Strawberry-Banana Oatmeal

From The Oatmeal Artist

Ingredients

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
 
Directions
  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.).

Elvis’s Oatmeal

From The Oatmeal Artist

Ingredients

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
honey
Directions
  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.

Fudgy Banana and Peanut Butter Oatmeal

From The Oatmeal Artist

Ingredients

1/2 cup regular rolled oats
1 cup liquid (water and/or milk of choice)
1 ripe banana
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 or 2 tbsp peanut butter
pinch of salt
Directions
  1. Bring 1 cup liquid 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 a ripe banana and add to the oatmeal. Stir.
  3. Once more of the liquid has dissolved, add cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir. If it doesn’t look very chocolaty, add more cocoa powder.
  4. If you’d like to add any extra ingredients (coconut oil, dried fruit), do so now.
  5. When you’re pleased with the consistency of the oatmeal, drop in small clumps of peanut butter and stir in. I don’t like to stir mine in completely. I like it left in clumps so I get bursts of peanut butter flavor every few bites. 🙂
  6. Transfer to a bowl. Serve with another splash of your milk of choice and any other additional toppings (shredded coconut, nuts, etc.). I used part of a sliced banana, chocolate chips, and Reese’s pieces.
