Creamy oats with banana and cinnamon

Creamy oats with cinnamon and banana

  • 250 ml uncooked oats
  • 375 ml of water
  • 375 ml of low-fat milk
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 sliced banana
  • 5 ml ground cinnamon

Serving size: 4
Preparation Time: 15 minutes

  1. Place oats, water, milk and salt in a saucepan and bring to the boil over medium heat.
  2. Once it starts to simmer, stir constantly to prevent lumps. Simmer for 5-10 minutes or until cooked.
  3. Serve oats with banana and cinnamon.


  1. Oats for one: ¼ cup (60 ml) uncooked oats with ¾ cup (180 ml) water (or half water and half low-fat milk) and a small pinch of salt. Prepare as explained, or mix in a big enough glass bowl and microwave for 3-5 minutes, depending on your microwave. Stir often and make sure it does not boil over.
  2. Pumpkin or sunflower seeds are delicious with oats and fruit. Try chopped raw, unsalted almonds – use 30 ml (2 tbsp) per portion of oats.
  3. If you are used to sugar on your oats, try this version – the fruit adds a natural sweetness and you won’t miss the sugar. If you struggle at first, gradually reduce the sugar until you don’t need it at all anymore.
