Overnight Coconut Banana Oatmeal

April 11

There is nothing better than waking up on a cool morning, knowing that a warm and delicious breakfast is waiting for you!  I love to make overnight oatmeal because it elminates the breakfast rush in the morning.  The sweet coconut and banana flavors and this topped off with a few chopped macadamia nuts, milk, and a touch of sugar free breakfast syrup makes me feel like I am on a tropical vacation for 5 minutes and not about to brave the frosty morning temperatures and a day of putting out fires at work!  Plus, any leftover store easily in the fridge for the rest of the week and reheat in the microwave in 1 minutes.  It doesn’t get much easier than that!

Overnight Coconut Banana Oatmeal

  • 2 cans coconut milk (can use light if you like)
  • 1.5 cups steel cut oats
  • 1 cup bran buds cereal
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3 bananas, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt, iodized

Spray the inside of a crockpot with pan spray.  Pour in all ingredients and stir gently.  Cook on low with the lid closed for 7-8 hours.  Serves 6-8 people.  Enjoy!
