For the Oatmeal:

  • 40 grams Oats
  • 150 millilitres Almond Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Brown Sugar optional
  • sprinkle Cinnamon optional
  • pinch Salt

For the Caramelised Bananas:

  • 1 teaspoon Coconut Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Banana


  • Add the oats, 120 ml of the almond milk, sugar, cinnamon, and salt into a pot and stir well. Cook on low heat for about 7 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the remaining 30 ml of almond milk halfway through cooking.
  • Meanwhile, melt the coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and stir well to combine. 
  • Slice a banana in half lengthwise. Spread out the caramel over the surface of the pan, add the sliced banana and cook for 3-4 minutes until golden brown. If you wish, you can flip the banana to caramelise both sides.
  • Once the oatmeal is creamy and bubbling, remove from the heat and decant into your favourite bowl. Top with the caramelised bananas. I also added chopped hazelnuts and homemade chia jam (see notes)


  • Using homemade Almond Milk makes this recipe extra creamy. Find a very easy recipe here.
  • I like to top my oatmeal with this Berry Chia Jam for added antioxidants. 
  • What to do with the remaining 1/2 a banana? Freeze it for use later in this smoothie recipe.
