Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: Vegan, Gluten-free
Serves: Serves 2
  • 2 cups soy milk
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp + 2 tsp coconut sugar, divided
  • 2 slightly underripe bananas
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 2 tbsp cacao nibs
  1. Bring the soy milk to a light boil. Add the oats, cinnamon, 2 tbsp coconut sugar, and salt. Reduce heat to a strong simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes, until thickened to your desired consistency. Remove from heat and stir in the chia seeds.
  2. While the oatmeal cooks, slice the banana in half lengthwise (or dice them if you prefer bite sized pieces.) Put a pan over medium heat. Melt the coconut oil. Add the bananas. Cook for about 2 minutes, sprinkle the coconut sugar on top, then flip the bananas over and cook the other side for another 1-2 minutes, until golden brown and slightly caramelized.
  3. Divide the cooked oatmeal between serving bowls. Top each bowl with nut butter, hemp seeds, cacao nibs, and caramelized bananas. Serve right away.
