Chocolate Banana Steel Cut Oatmeal

Tired of banana bread from your old bananas? Try this recipe for naturally sweetened oatmeal. There are lots of add-in options, but this chocolate one is my favorite. I'm usually too hungry in the morning to wait for 30 minutes for my breakfast, so I keep this oatmeal in the fridge and then reheat in the microwave in the morning, with a little milk.

Chocolate Banana Steel Cut Oatmeal


Adapted slightly from Oh She Glows
Yields approximately four servings

2 c water
2 c almond milk
1 c uncooked steel-cut oats
pinch of salt
2 large bananas, mashed
2 T ground flax seeds (optional) 
2 teas ground cinnamon
2 teas vanilla
chocolate chips
cacao nibs

In a medium-sized pot, bring the water and almond milk to a boil. Add in steel-cut oats and a pinch of salt and reduce heat to low. Stir in the mashed banana and ground flax. Simmer, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or so. When the oats are creamy and tender, remove from heat and stir in cinnamon and vanilla. To serve, sprinkle with chocolate chips and cacao nibs to taste.
