Basic Stovetop Oatmeal Recipe

This basic oatmeal recipe is easy to make on the stovetop and is naturally sweetened with banana!




  1. Place the oats, almond milk, water, and cinnamon in a small saucepan. Thinly slice the banana into the pan and stir to combine.
  2. Heat the oats over medium heat until it comes to a simmer. Allow it to simmer for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Vigorously stir the oatmeal so the thinly sliced banana “melts” into the oats.
  4. Allow the oats to cook for another 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Stir in the blueberries, if using. Drizzle with a small amount of almond butter, if you prefer. Enjoy!
