I try to change up the flavors from one week to the next, just for the sake of variety, but this combo of banana and peanut butter shows up frequently in the rotation. I like the touch of sweetness and spice that the Cinnamon Raisin Swirl peanut butter adds, but feel free to switch up with your favorite Peanut Butter and Co flavor!
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes
Yield: 5 servings
3 cups milk (or substitute almond milk for a vegan version)
2 very ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup steel-cut oats
1/4 cup Cinnamon Raisin Swirl peanut butter
1. In a large saucepan set over medium-high heat, whisk together the milk, mashed banana, and salt, and bring to a boil.
2. Stir in the oats, then turn down the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the oats are soft and have absorbed almost all of the liquid. Remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter.
3. Spoon the hot oatmeal into five 1-cup mason jars (or any other microwave-safe container with a tight-fitting lid), and set aside to cool, uncovered. Once the jars are completely cooled, seal them up with lids and transfer to the refrigerator until ready to use.
4. To serve, simply microwave the uncovered jars for 1-2 minutes on high or until warmed through. If you so desire, feel free to garnish with sliced bananas, a swirl of honey and/or a splash of fresh cream, then dig in!
