Serves: 2

Difficulty: 2/10




  • 1 cup oats (use gluten free oats for gluten free oatmeal)

  • 1.5 cups milk of choice + more to dilute in the morning if oatmeal made ahead (approx. 1/4 cup per serving)

  • 1 mashed banana

Optional toppings:


The Oatmeal:

  1. Add all oatmeal ingredients to the pot on medium-high. Stir to combine the ingredients.

  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and allow to cook for about 15 minutes. Stir frequently to prevent burning.

  3. Once thick, remove from stove top.

  4. Add a little milk if it's too thick for your liking.

** The oatmeal can be prepared in advance and stored in the fridge.


  1. If prepared in advance, when you’d like to enjoy the oatmeal, remove it from the fridge and add in extra milk (approx. 1/4 cup per serving) until it reaches the desired consistency (add more milk if you like your oatmeal thinner).

  2. Heat it up in a pot on the stove or in the microwave. Stir frequently to prevent burning (stove) or uneven distribution of heat (microwave).


  1. Add the oatmeal to a bowl and top with toppings of choice.


* If using steel-cut oats soak them overnight to reduce cooking time.

* Storage: Oatmeal can be made-ahead and stored in the fridge in an airtight container.
