Gluten-free, vegan banana bread oatmeal that tastes like the real deal. Get fancy (ok not that fancy, they’re super simple) and add some caramelized bananas and toasted walnuts on top for a gourmet breakfast!
When I’m meal planning and making a grocery list for the week, I typically ask Isaac if he has any requests. Sometimes he has a meal request, but the other week he had a snack request: banana bread. I am 100% a sucker for banana bread. I may or may not have three banana bread recipes on my site… I will always and forever treat myself to a slice of banana bread when it’s available. It’s one of those things that I rarely think to make though. So when Isaac requested it, I immediately added the ingredients to my grocery list to make this recipe.
I love warming up a slice of banana bread and topping it with coconut oil or a nut butter — it’s a simple breakfast, a delicious snack or, let’s be real, a bomb dessert too. So when I was brainstorming new oatmeal recipes, “banana bread” popped in my head and I knew it was going to be a hit.
This oatmeal has a delicious base recipe that you can build your own flavors on. I chose to top it with caramelized bananas (yum) and toasted walnuts (double yum). Bonus points: it can be made a high-protein meal by adding in a little protein powder. You could also use these ingredients and make a delicious overnight oats recipe if that’s more your style. I hope you give my new favorite oatmeal a try!
