Best After-Training Treat – Caramelized Banana Oatmeal

Caramelized banana oatmeal is sweet, creamy, and easy to throw together as breakfast, lunch, or a snack after a workout. The recipe is high in protein, potassium, and vitamin B6. It’s also vegan, naturally gluten-free and SO delicious! It will warm up your cold mornings and encourage you to have workouts so you can enjoy it afterwards 🙂


1 cup rolled oats
2 cups plant-based milk or water
2 bananas, sliced
1- 2 tbsp coconut oil
1/4 cup maple syrup, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 tsp cinnamon


Add the oats and plant-based milk or water to a pot and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to low, add cinnamon and vanilla and let simmer until thickened.
While the oatmeal is cooking, add the coconut oil and 2 tbsp maple syrup to a large pan. Once it is sizzling, add in the sliced bananas.
Cook on each side for about 3-5 minutes, or until nice and golden brown.
When the oatmeal is done, stir in the final 2 tbsp of maple syrup and top with bananas.
Top with an extra pinch of cinnamon, crushed walnuts, pecans, berries, nutritious seeds or nut butter and enjoy!

This is my favorite after-training treat because it combines breakfast with dessert! What is yours?
