Cherry banana oatmeal (No Oil, No Refined Sugar)

Oatmeal is a favourite breakfast option during the colder months. It’s a lovely ritual stirring the oatmeal in a saucepan and watching it get creamy, and these cherries add a pretty pink to my warm breakfast.

1/2 cup oats

3/4 cup water

1/4 cup plant milk

1 banana, mashed. The riper your banana, the sweeter your oatmeal will be.

1/2 cup frozen cherries

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground flaxseed

  1. Combine oats and water in saucepan and cook over low heat.
  2. Add mashed banana and stir continuously. Stirring helps make a creamy oatmeal.
  3. As the oatmeal comes to a consistency that you like, add the frozen cherries and cook for another minute.
  4. Serve and sprinkle flaxseed and cinnamon on top.
