Banana Sweetened Stovetop Oatmeal

This is my favorite way to make oatmeal on the stovetop! There is no sugar added, but instead sweetened with banana. This oatmeal recipe is filled with protein, fiber and antioxidants.

the best stovetop oatmeal

I have been making oatmeal like this for years. It’s quick, easy and taste really delicious. I add in chia seeds for both fiber, protein and a source of omegas which give this oatmeal an amazing fluffy texture.

I like to top mine off with simple toppings like peanut butter, goji berries, blueberries and cacao bibs, but the possibilities are endless. You can customize this bowl to your liking, that’s what makes it so fun! This video gained a lot of traction over on Tiktok, so I hope you love it too!

Ingredients used in banana sweetened oatmeal

The ingredient list is short and sweet, just like this oatmeal recipe! Grab the handful of ingredients below and let’s get cooking!

old fashioned oats– For this recipe we will be using old fashioned oats. I always pick up a container each week at Trader Joe’s, but feel free to use your favorite brand. Please note, this recipe using old fashioned rolled oats, not quick oats.

liquid of choice– I use two cups of almond milk and one cup of water, but you can substitute to use all almond milk, all water, or any other type of milk/nut-milk alternative.

chia seeds– two tablespoons of chia seeds is what gives this oatmeal that fluffy, drool worthy texture.

toppings of choice– you can get as creative here as you’d like. I personally like cacao nibs, frozen blueberries, goji berries and peanut butter.

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
Toppings
  • peanut butter
  • goji berries

YIELDS:

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium/low heat, mash down one banana and then add in the oats, almond milk and water. Mix until well combined.
  2. Stir in chia seeds and allow mixture to simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. The oats will start to get foamy, that’s okay. Just turn the heat lower if it gets too high and keep stirring.
  3. When the foam is gone and the oats are cooked, remove from heat and stir in desired toppings.

I made this morning for myself and my 4, and 1 year old grandkids. Love the idea of cooking oats in a pan instead of a pot. I topped theirs with creamy organic peanut butter and mine with almond butter. Topped all with fresh strawberries and slightly thawed blueberries. Yum! Thank you for this great recipe that I’ll use weekly!
