  • Method: stovetop
  • Cuisine: American


  • 1 cup rolled oats (old fashioned, not quick cooking)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup milk of choice (I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk most of the time)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 large banana
  • 1 large apple, peeled and diced

Optional Toppings: ground flaxseed, raisins, shaved almonds, additional milk


  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the oats, milk, water, and cinnamon.  Add the banana in very thin slices.
  2. Bring the mixture to a simmer, and then stir vigorously to whip the bananas into the oatmeal.
  3. Stir in the apples and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the oatmeal reaches the consistency you prefer, about 4-5 more minutes.  The longer you let it cook, the thicker it will become.
  4. Serve in bowls and add any toppings you prefer.
