Banana Cream Oatmeal

Banana Cream Oatmeal

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 2 medium bananas - sliced into thin coins
  • 1/2 cup non-fat sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
In a large sauce pan, bring the water to a boil.

Add the oats. Immediately reduce heat to medium. Cook for one minute - stirring often. Remove from heat.

Add the banana slices and condensed milk to the oats and stir to mix. Cover the pan and let it set for 2 or 3 minutes, or until desired thickness is reached.

Serve warm, sprinkled with cinnamon. Top with chopped walnuts or pecans and a splash of cold milk for a nice final touch.

Banana Cream Oatmeal

Note From Mr Breakfast:

Thanks to "Britney" for submitting this recipe. I tried it and I loved it with a couple slight modifications.

I used 3 banana. I mashed 2 of them and stirred them into the oats. I sliced the other into coins and served those on top. I found 1/2 cup condensed milk to be a little too sweet, so I took that down to 1/3 cup.

For more about my version and to see more pics, visit my blog post called This Oatmeal Tastes Like Banana Cream Pie!

My kids love this. They ask for it just as much as they do store-bought cereals. I hope you like it too.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Britney for this recipe.

I LOVE... LOVE... LOVE... DID I MENTION I LOVE OATMEAL!!!! I always got upset at the fact that it's only two measly packets of banana and cream flavor in the Quaker oatmeal variety box. The banana is the absolute best in the whole box, and I can't figure out why they won't make a box of all banana cream flavor as they do with peaches and cream or apples and cinnamon. But thank you tons for this oh so yummy to my tummy delicious recipe. The fresh bananas are so much better!

You only need a couple tablespoons of condensed milk to make it creamy. Better yet... I stir a little vanilla yogurt into my servings and it gets creamy and adds flavor. I also sprinkle brown sugar over each serving. Very nice to wake up to!

Looks good, but I wonder if this is really healthy with the condensed milk?

Works better with just 1/4 cup of condensed milk. It still turns out creamy but doesn't get too sweet. I like this one because it's super easy.

I used 3 bananas which I smashed in the boiling water before putting in the oats. Also used vanilla soy milk. The cereal was thicker with the extra banana... and actually not too sweet as others have described. I would make this recipe again!

I make this all the time but a little differently... just make oatmeal according to directions, stir in 1 small mashed banana, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and add just a splash of milk or half and half. Delicious, easy, healthy. Love it!

It was really watery! We prefer ours with milk. Next time I am going to split the water with milk and add some butter too!

This is good! I made it a little diff from your recipe though... Just put one banana and some milk mixed with a little bit of sugar. I put the milk and banana in after the oatmeal cooked, mixed it all in and left it to sit for 3 mins. Taste great with Toast!

Too sweet in my opinion as it seemed to upset my stomach every time that I had it for breakfast and I had it 4 days in a row.
