Banana Flax Oatmeal with Toasted Walnuts

Updated: Served in an empty peanut butter jar


  • 1/2 cup (40g) rolled oats
  • 1 to 1-1/2 cups water*
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 medium banana, sliced into thin pieces
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp flax seed meal
  • 1 tsp stevia
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1/4 oz toasted walnut pieces
* Depending on whether you like your oatmeal thick or creamy and a bit thinner. You could start with 1 cup of water and add more if necessary. You could also sub in milk (or your favorite milk substitute) too.


In a medium size pan, heat the oats, water, and salt over medium heat. Once the mixture begins to simmer, approximately 5-6 minutes, stir in the sliced banana. Continue to stir until the banana breaks down and the mixture thickens*. Add vanilla, flax seed meal, stevia, and pumpkin spice, and stir until incorporated. Pour into a serving bowl (or empty nut butter jar) and top with walnuts.
