Banana Honey Oatmeal

  
I make oatmeal a lot, always altering the ingredients to fit my cravings for that certain day. But I have to say.. This recipe is my favourite one so far. I usually add brown sugar or raw sugar for sweetness but I’ve been trying to reduce my refined sugar intake by using more natural sugar ingredients. This recipe taste like a dessert and is filled with sweetness, but all from natural sources so there’s nothing to worry about. Please try and let me know what you think!!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup gluten free rolled oats or instant oats
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 date, finely chopped 
  • 1 cup water

Directions:

(This can be made on a stove top or instantly in a bowl)

Stovetop directions:

  1. In a medium sized pot, mash banana over low heat. Once heated through and mushy, add the rest of the ingredients and combine. 
  2. Bring to a boil and then let simmer until it is a thick consistency. 

Instant:

  1. Boil water. 
  2. Mash up banana in a bowl. Add oats, cinnamon, honey, and date.
  3. Combine thoroughly then add desired amount of water (I used about 1/2 cup). Let sit in absorb water for about 4-5 minutes.
