Fluffy Banana Oatmeal


  • 1 cup rolled oats

  • 2.5 cups unsweetened almond milk (divided into 2 cups and 1/2 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 medium banana, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds


  1. Place all ingredients (minus 1/2 cup almond milk) into a sauce pan. Turn to high medium/high heat, mix, and bring to a boil.
  2. Turn heat down to low/medium and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring consistently until oatmeal thickens.
  3. Add 1/2 cup more almond milk and mix again. Let simmer for 1-2 more minutes. We call this double whipped.
  4. Top with walnuts, bananas, and chunks of banana bread.
