This Banana Walnut Oatmeal is perfect to add to your rotation this week if you’re looking for a new oatmeal recipe that’s delicious, hearty, and filling.
Oatmeal is such a staple breakfast it seems. A wonderful source of dietary fibre, and almost limitless when it comes to toppings or ways to flavour it.
I recently whipped up this Banana Walnut Oatmeal made with an assortment of goodies (like chia seeds, cinnamon, and plump Thompson raisins) and it truly makes for a delicious, hearty, and filling breakfast.
How to Make Banana Walnut Oatmeal
For this oatmeal you’ll need:
- Milk of choice
- Chia seeds
- Thompson raisins
- Sea salt
- Coconut or brown sugar (optional)
That may look like quite the pile of oatmeal additions, but let me tell you, it’s so good! You’re going to love this one.
