Meaghan Quinn, yoga teacher at EveryBodyFights, makes a variation of this Oh She Glows oatmeal all of the time. She skips a few ingredients and adapted it slightly. Get the delicious banana oatmeal recipe below and give it a try. 

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal

(serves 1)


1 ripe banana, peeled and roughly chopped

1 tsp coconut oil or ghee

1/2 cup oatmeal (any kind)

1 tsp chia seeds

1 cup milk (Meaghan opts for plain, unsweetened almond milk)

¼ tsp ground cinnamon

1 Tbsp nut butter

Optional: maple syrup, nuts, dried fruit or cacao nuts for topping


  1. In a small sauce pan, heat the oil or ghee over medium head. Cook the banana with the cinnamon for about 5 minutes or until it starts to brown.
  2. Add the oats, chia seeds, milk and another sprinkle of cinnamon. Bring to low boil then reduce to simmer. Stir and cook for about 5-10 minutes (depending on whether you are using quick-cook oats or not).
  3. Remove from heat, then add nut butter, maple syrup, nuts, cinnamon, etc!

Fight fuel tip: Make this your own! Customize with different fruit (apples or peaches) and be creative with toppings.
