These banana walnut oats are just an easier and healthier way to eat banana bread for breakfast. And I don't know about you but I love banana bread! This dish is super easy to make in the mornings whether you're rushing to get to work on time or you're looking for a filling relaxed breakfast at home.
The ingredients you'll need are: Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves, one banana, a half cup of oats, honey, unsweetened coconut milk (or milk of your choice), and walnuts. Add your oats and spices to a pot.
The key to making banana oats is to cook half of a banana in the pot with the oats. This will give your oats even more flavor rather than just adding the banana on top. Don't worry though, I add the other half of the banana as the topping.
So, slice up half of your banana and add it to the pot with the oats and spices.
Then, add about 1 tsp of honey (to taste) and pour in 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk and bring it all to a boil.
Once it boils, turn down the heat to 2 or 3 and let it simmer for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until the oats meet your desired consistency. Once they look finished to you serve into a bowl and top with the your banana (sliced up) and a handful of roughly chopped walnuts (to taste).
Serve hot and enjoy!
