This Oatmeal Tastes Like Banana Cream Pie!

Banana Cream Oatmeal

This oatmeal tastes like banana cream pie!  It gets big banana flavor from mashed and sliced bananas and a creamy richness from a modest amount of sweetened condensed milk.  If you add a dollop of whipped cream, you’re in for the full banana cream pie near-experience.  For the more diet conscience, you can skip the whipped cream and still get a pretty serious pie flashback.

This recipe is a modified version of a popular recipe on called Banana Cream Oatmeal.

Ingredients For Banana Cream Oatmeal

Here’s how to do it:

The ingredients are 2 cups of oats (Old Fashioned or quick-cooking), 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk, a hint of cinnamon and 3 bananas.  The original recipe asked for 2 bananas, but I found that it really benefited from one more.

Making The Oats For Banana Cream Oatmeal

Prepare the oats as directed on the package.  I tried it with both quick cooking and Old Fashioned oats.  The end result was the same.  Both kinds of oats required 4 cups of water (double the amount of oats).  The only difference was – as you might expect – the quick cooking oats cooked quicker.

Mashing Bananas For Banana Cream Oatmeal

As the oats are cooking, mash two bananas.

Banana Cream Oatmeal With Raspberries

I added raspberries to make the pictures pop.  I found that they also made the recipe pop.  So, add ‘em if you got ‘em.

Banana Cream Oatmeal All Mixed Up

There it is… a delicious, unique oatmeal that takes about 15 seconds longer to make than it takes to make just the oats.  One might say, “It’s easy as pie!”
