Caramelized Banana Porridge 

Serves 1

Vegan, Gluten-Free


  • 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats 
  • 1 cup plant-based milk + extra for topping (I used a coconut-almond blend)
  • 1 large banana, divided
  • 2 Medjool dates 
  • 1 teaspoon vegan butter 
  • 1-2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 2 tablespoons dairy-free chocolate chips
  • 1-2 tablespoons roasted hazelnuts 
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut  


  1. Slice the banana in half. Mash half with a fork. Slice the other half into coins (not too thin). 
  2. In a medium saucepan, add the oats, 1 cup milk, 1/2 mashed banana +  Medjool dates. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently until thick and creamy.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a small skillet over medium-high heat and add the vegan butter. Once hot and melted, add the banana coins. Cook for 3-4 minutes, then flip and cook 1-2 more minutes until browned and caramelized.
  4. Top cooked porridge with caramelized bananas, peanut butter, hemp seeds, chocolate chips, hazelnuts, coconut and if desired, additional milk.
