Banana Chocolate Oatmeal

You can’t beat chocolate for breakfast! This nutritious bowl of Banana Chocolate Oatmeal tastes like a sweet treat, but is rich in nutrients. This recipe is balanced with protein, fiber, and healthy fats which make it both a delicious and satisfying meal. You can eat this as overnight oats or heat it up to make it a warm, cozy breakfast. I personally prefer to warm this oatmeal bowl with the banana because the banana melts into the oatmeal and tastes so delicious. This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and (as always) super easy to make.

What You’ll Need:

Oats: You will need rolled oats for this recipe. If you are gluten- free, be sure to purchase ‘gluten-free rolled oats’.

Milk: You will need some kind of unsweetened milk for this recipe. I used unsweetened almond milk.

Cacao Powder: The cacao powder gives the oats a chocolate flavor. It tastes bitter by itself so the banana and sweetener are necessary to give the oatmeal an overall sweet, chocolate flavor.

Chia Seeds: Chia seeds are packed with nutrients and an excellent source of fiber.

Sweetener: You will need a little bit of honey or maple syrup to sweeten this recipe.

Bananas: You will need one ripe banana for this recipe. I personally like warming the banana in the oatmeal bowl because the banana sort of melts into the oatmeal and tastes so delicious!

Nut/Seed butter: You can use any kind of unsweetened nut or seed butter for this recipe. I personally like using peanut butter.

  1. Combine all of the ingredients except for the banana and nut or seed butter into a container.
