Banana Coconut Hot Oats...they don't have to be boring!!

Creamy Banana Coconut Hot oats...
I am not a fan of Oatmeal...but when you dress it up (in a healthy way) it is delicious...
I hope you will try this yummy recipe
1/3 cup of Oats
1/3 cup coconut water
2/3 cup of  unsweetened Coconut milk 
1/2 ripe banana 
1 Tablespoon Chia seeds
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
In a pan mix oats, coconut water and milk
While waiting for mixture to boil...take half of the halved banana and mince it
when mixture starts to boil add the minced banana
with a whisk whip mixture...(constantly)
add the chia seeds and vanilla (continue to cook and stir for remaining time..5 minutes)
place in a pretty bowl...:))
add toppings...
1 Tablespoon almond butter
shaved unsweetened coconut 
raw cacao
 the rest of the banana..
These Oats will not be thick...the banana gives them a creamy texture!

According to "my fitness pal"...this has about 400 calories (good calories)
I believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
I also like to eat the majority of my calories early....I burn them off throughout the day!
Of course you can cut the calories by using a 1/2 T of Almond butter, using water instead of coconut water...

Kids will love this...Lou loves them too!
Let me know what you think...will you try them?
If you like these kinds of recipe ideas....let me know in the comment section..

Have a happy healthy day!


  1. Thanks so much for sharing Tammy, I can't wait to try this one!

  2. i'm not a fan of oatmeal either, so this might be a good way for me to eat it more. Thanks for the post!

  3. Call me day late and a dollar short, but now that I just discovered you're over here too......I'm not a big fan of coconut. Coconut milk I like, but it's a texture thing with shredded coconut. However, the shaved coconut is spectacular if you toast it a bit in the oven.
