How to make Banana Oatmeal Porridge | Healthy Back-to-School Breakfast

This Warming Banana Oatmeal Porridge is one of my favorite healthy breakfast recipes on busy days. It’s naturally sweet, packed with magnesium and really filling so you won’t feel the need to grab a sugary snack in the morning. It’s also high in fiber which is great to keep your digestive system moving and beat bloating.

Banana Oatmeal Porridge

SERVES: 1 person

EQUIPMENT: cooking pot


Banana Oatmeal Porridge

½ cup oats, soaked overnight
½ cup non-dairy milk, unsweetened (rice, coconut, oat milk…)
1 ripe banana, sliced
½ - 1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 pinches of sea salt
½ - 1 teaspoon maca powder (optional, it adds a caramel flavor)

Toppings (some of my favorites)

1 large teaspoon nut or seed butter (almond, peanut, tahini…)
2-4 tablespoons coconut yogurt
2-4 tablespoons granola
2 tablespoons toasted coconut flakes
1 handful berries, fresh or frozen


1. Soak your oats overnight to make them easier to digest.
2. In the morning, pour away the soaking water and rinse your oats well.
3. In a cooking pot combine the rinsed oats with the non-dairy milk, sliced banana, cinnamon and sea salt. Leave to cook on medium heat for about one to two minutes and stir frequently so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot.
4. Turn off the heat and stir in the maca powder.
5. Pour into a bowl and add toppings of your choice. Some of my favorites are tahini, coconut yogurt, granola, coconut flakes and berries.


• To add some variety to your breakfast, you can replace (part of) the oats with buckwheat or quinoa flakes.
• I love adding ¼ teaspoon of chai or gingerbread spice too, instead of the maca powder – or how about a spoonful of cacao powder for a chocolate variation?
