Yield: 1 serving


  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ medium banana, mashed
  • 2 tsp honey
  • ¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp raw chopped walnuts


  1. Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the oats and reduce the heat so the oatmeal comes to a simmer. Stir occasionally while it cooks for 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in the banana and honey. Cook for 2 more minutes or until the oats are tender and thickened. Remove from the heat, and stir in the vanilla and cinnamon.
  3. Mix in the walnuts before serving, or serve them sprinkled over the top.
