Single Serving Banana Oatmeal

by Rachel | Studio Cuisine on November 14, 2012

This past few weeks have been a whirlwind! As you might have noticed from my previous post, I’ve done some entertaining the past few weeks. My best friend from college was in town last weekend (hi Lauren!) and this weekend I had the privilege of hosting my mom (hi Mom!). On top of that, I was tasked with finishing a final paper for one of my classes (one down, three to go!). With all of these visitors and paper writing going on, blogging was a far off thought, but now I’m back, with oatmeal!

I’ve recently become an oatmeal addict. It’s a nice variation on my regular eggs and bacon breakfast. Bear in mind this is not your ordinary oatmeal packet. It’s a homemade, clean version with ingredients that you can pronounce and feel good about, with a little chocolate for good measure. As a person who’s all about texture when it comes to food, loving oatmeal is something I never in a million years I thought would happen. But here I am, gushing over a warm and comforting bowl of mush bananas and oats.

I’d highly recommend making this oatmeal and switching up your regular breakfast. If I can like this bowl of oatmeal, I’m sure anyone can.

Single Serving Banana Oatmeal

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 7 minutes


  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats (not quick cooking)
  • 1/3 cup water or milk of choice
  • 1/2 banana, mashed well
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla bean paste (or vanilla extract)
  • sweetener, to taste
  • desired toppings (i.e. chocolate chips, coconut flakes, nut butter)


  1. In a pot, mix together oats, water/milk, banana, cinnamon, vanilla, and sweetener of choice (if desired).
  2. Turn burner to medium high, and cook oats until all liquid has been absorbed, about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Transfer to bowl, add desired toppings, and eat!
