Grilled banana oatmeal

April 24, 2018  •  In Breakfast  • Recipe by me

After 5 years of experience in the kitchen (I could say I'm a senior meal developer), I got to a level where I can invent my own recipes. So I proudly present you one of my patents.

It's a simple oatmeal recipe with nut butter of your choice and grilled banana. For grilling I use coconut oil and a pinch of coconut sugar. The result is a creamy, comforting breakfast, done in 5 minutes. Pairs perfectly with a big cup of coffee.

When I moved to Paris, I discovered nut butters. In organic food shops there are a plethora of versions. My favourite are blanched almond and cashew butter. The most exotic one I tried is pistachio butter and I use it in Marrakesh salad you can find also on my blog.


oats, vegan milk, coconut sugar (or other sweetener), coconut oil, banana, nut butter, vanilla extract


Measure 0.75 of a cup of oats and put them in a cooking pot. Add 1.25 cup of milk, 0.5 spoon of coconut sugar and a bit of vanilla extract. Cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 3-5 minutes, until the porridge has a nice not-too-thick consistency, and transfer it to a plate or a small bowl. In the meantime melt 0.75 teaspoon of coconut oil and add banana cut in "wheels". Sprinke with 0.3 teaspoon of coconut sugar and stir. Grill 1 minute on one side, turn the "wheels" and grill 1 minute on the other side. Meanwhile put a large spoon of your nut butter of choice on the oats and top with grilled bananas. Bon app├ętit !
