Banana oatmeal with flax seed is a hearty and nutritious five-ingredient breakfast recipe that is naturally gluten free. Prepared in less than 5 minutes!
My kids ask for oatmeal almost every morning. Naturally sweetened with ripe bananas and full of whole grain oats, I couldn’t be happier to comply with their request.
While you certainly could make this over the stove top, I always make it in the microwave to avoid dirtying a pan. Then, I remove half for my youngest and the oldest eats out of the bigger bowl.
We often add in frozen blueberries to cool down the oatmeal before serving but fresh berries or no berries is fine too. Chopped walnuts add great texture and more healthy fats but you’ll get those from the flax seed meal as well.
Warm, comforting and wholesome – a healthy breakfast is just minutes away.
Your spoon is waiting.
