Banana Cinnamon Oatmeal Recipe

By Elizabeth Stark

Oatmeal has long been a family breakfast favorite, and I love having fun with all the flavor combinations. For this batch, made on a lazy morning with my girls, I opted for cinnamon, honey, and bananas. Cinnamon and honey are the obvious choices, but cool, creamy bananas added a little natural sweetness along with great flavor.

Banana Cinnamon Oatmeal

serves 4


  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • 3 – 4 tablespoons honey


  1. In a medium-sized sauce pan, bring the water to a boil. Stir in the oats, cinnamon, and salt, and turn down to simmer. Cook for 10 – 15 minutes, or until oats have reached your desired consistency.
  2. Just before serving, spoon oatmeal into bowls and finish with the banana slices, milk, and honey, plus a little sprinkle of cinnamon.
