Fudgy Banana Steel-Cut Oatmeal with Peanut Butter

So you love my Fudgy Banana & Peanut Butter Oatmeal, eh?

Well, what if you want to make a steel-cut version?

…Or what if you want to feed a friend (or a “friend” 😉 ). Or maybe a whole crowd. Or yourself…for a week!

Here you go. The ingredients are shown for two servings, but it will work perfectly to double everything for four servings. Yay!

The servings will look small compared to a normal serving of the original FB&PB Oatmeal (I’ve grown tired of writing out that title, haha). However, you have to understand that steel-cut oatmeal is surprisingly filling. It looks small, but you’ll be surprised by how plump it will feel in your tummy!

Maybe that’s why I prefer stove-top oatmeal. Big bowls!!

Fudgy Banana Steel-Cut Oatmeal with Peanut Butter

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Yield: serves 2

What you'll need:

  • 2 cups milk of choice, or water
  • 1/2 cup steel-cut soats (I use Country Choice Organic)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • peanut butter (or PB2) for serving

How to make it:

  1. Bring milk (I use an equal mixture of almond milk and water) to a boil, add oats, and reduce heat to medium low.
  2. Allow to simmer on its own for about 10 minutes.
  3. Mash up a ripe banana and add to the oatmeal. Stir.
  4. Once more of the liquid has absorbed, add cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir. If it doesn’t look very chocolatey, add more cocoa powder.
  5. When you’re pleased with the consistency of the oatmeal, transfer to a bowl. Serve with another splash of your milk of choice, a serving of peanut butter, and any other additional toppings (chocolate chips, peanuts, shredded coconut, etc.).

Just an FYI:

Double the recipe to make four servings.

    I made this for the first time since I’ve tried the sweet potato fudge, and I think I might like it better than the fudgy banana! I think the sweet potato gives a better texture, but of course both are still fabulous.
