Banana Bread Steel Cut Oats with Omega-3s

Banana Bread Steel Cut Oats with Omega-3s

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 cup of steel cut or Irish oats
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1 pinch of kosher salt
  • 2 Tablespoons of real maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon of walnut oil
  • 1 teaspoon of flax seeds
  • 8 fresh California dates (honey dates preferred)
  • 1 medium banana - sliced
  • milk or additional water to adjust thickness
Bring the water to a boil. Add a pinch of salt. Add the oats, stir, and let boil until the mixture begins to thicken, or about 5 minutes.

Reduce heat to a simmer, add walnut oil, flax seeds, maple, brown sugar and chopped dates. Simmer for 30 minutes or until desired consistency.

Remove from heat and serve in bowls topped with sliced bananas and a splash of milk if desired.

So good! The best part is that your kids or husband will never know it's healthy! Tastes just like banana bread oatmeal!


A super way to get extra omega-3 fatty acids in your diet (from the walnut oil and flax seeds) not to mention fiber, vitamins and minerals!
