Caramelised Banana & Peanut Butter Oats

A quick and energising Winter breakfast to satisfy that sweet tooth!

I have to admit that oats are definitely one of my favourite things to have for breakfast, I mean I could have them EVERYDAY! Not only do they keep me full for longer periods of time compared to other breakfasts but combined with the right ingredients I find that it can really put my day on a good stead when trying to eat better.

This quick and simple breakfast will have you feeling full and satisfied until lunch.


- Organic Whole Rolled Oats (or whichever oats you prefer) 
- Banana (I find one decent size banana is plenty)
- Peanut Butter (I use Meridians crunch peanut butter as it s 100% peanuts and no other nasties but of course you can substitute with whichever you prefer)
- Coconut Oil (I use this to caramelize the banana with - my favourite is Lucy Bee) 


Cook oats as per instructions, measure the same amount of oats you usually would - I tend to use about a 50g portion for myself and cook mine on the hob with about 200 - 250ml of Blue Diamond unsweetened Almond Milk. 

I cut the one banana into medium slices. I leave 6 to 10 slices to the side to caramelise and top my oats with when they are finished and then cook the other remaining slices into my oats. This adds a little but more bulk to the oats, sweeter flavour and a different texture.

I preheat a small milk pan for this and add about half to a full small teaspoon of Lucy Bee coconut oil to the pan once preheated and then add my banana slices to the pan. Sometimes I add a sprinkle of unrefined muscovado sugar to the oil to give it extra sweetness but often find the coconut oil does the trick by itself. I cook the banana slices for about two minutes on each side or until they start going golden and almost soft - this ensures that they have that really sweet almost caramel flavour. 

You could go crazy with different combinations but I am really loving the flavour combination of the sweet, soft banana with the crunchy almost salty peanut butter. 
Present any way you want and dig in! 

Happy Eating!

  2. This looks delicious! I have been loving oats/porridge recently so it would be great to try the caramelised banana with it, as I usually just have fresh chopped banana with mine x
