Bananas Foster Oatmeal
- In a saucepan, combine oats, mashed banana, plant milk, vanilla, maple syrup (if using), cinnamon, nutmeg (if using), and salt. Cook over medium heat until creamy, about 10 minutes.
- Serve oats topped with chia seeds and chopped walnuts, if desired.
Tip: Store any leftover oatmeal in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Unflavored Plant Milk: Plant milk is the term we use to describe the plant-based milk of your choice. Rice, oat, hemp, almond, and soy milk are all varieties of plant milk. Look for unsweetened, unflavored plant milks.
Pure Maple Syrup: Maple syrup is boiled down sap from the maple tree. Make sure to purchase “pure maple syrup” (not “pancake syrup,” “table syrup,” or “maple-flavored syrup,” or even just “maple syrup,” as they contain artificial maple flavor and cane sugar or corn syrup).
Chia Seeds: Look for chia seeds in the natural foods or baking aisles at your grocery store. For most recipes, either ground or whole will work.
