Is oatmeal a healthy breakfast?

This oatmeal bowl is a heart-healthy breakfast and a great way to start the morning. Although the carbs are high in this oatmeal bowl recipe, it’s loaded with whole grains and fruit with over 11 grams of fiber and 11 grams of protein. This is a great way to get all your fruit into one meal and I love eating a rainbow of colors which has a variety of vitamins and minerals.

How do you sweeten oatmeal naturally?

I don’t add sugar to my oats. Instead, I use ripe mashed banana to naturally sweeten them, which make the oats sweet enough for me. Feel free to drizzle some honey or maple over the oatmeal if you like them sweeter.

Oatmeal Bowl Toppings:

I  love topping my oatmeal breakfast bowl with fresh fruit, almonds, chia seeds, and peanut butter that I warm in the microwave. The toppings are versatile, though. Below are more topping ideas, but let me know in the comments below if you come with others!

Fruit: Banana, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, peaches, figs
Dried Fruit: Dried cranberries, prunes, dates
Nuts: Almonds, walnuts, pecans, pistachios
Seeds: Chia seeds, flax seeds
Sauce: Melted peanut butter, almond butter, or sunflower butter, honey, maple syrup

  1. Delicious and filling! I did find the oats needed a little more sweetener, I used a splash of sugar free mocha syrup for a little chocolatey touch.

    This is delicious.  I am a busy working mom/student, so quick breakfasts are my jam.  In the past I would just drink coffee on my way out the door and not really eat breakfast.  However, I have found that taking a little extra time to make this yummy, filling breakfast is so worth it because of the amount of energy that comes with fueling your body. This oatmeal is quickly becoming one of my go-to morning meals! Love it!

  3.   I had to try this since I enjoy my morning oatmeal  and I love bananas with peanut butter. Thanks for this recipe that satisfies my banana with peanut butter cravings!! It has now moved to one of my main go to recipes for breakfast for sure!!

  4. So easy, quick yummy and filling, Gina
    I have made the recipe as written and it was good. It also yummy with applesauce instead of banana and strawberries instead of raspberries. Lightly defrosted frozen (microwave) blueberries work and easier on the budget (Costco).

    I always appreciate the flexibility of your recipes.

  5. I read this recipe and made it immediately. Not only was it delish, it was so fun to eat such a gorgeous breakfast. Yummy and kept me satisfied til lunchtime. 

  6. Sounds yummy!  I have a banana allergy. What would you recommend as a sub for the mashed banana?  Would it be ok if left out? 

  7. Somewhat similar — I use 1/2 c old fashioned oats, 1.5 T powdered PB, 1t light brown sugar, 1c water. If I have it I add ground flax seed. Adding fruit sounds like a delicious idea!

    My current favourite oatmeal topping is ‘carrot cake’ – add cinnamon to the oatmeal and top with some pineapple, grated carrot and a few chopped nuts!

  9. You do need to use peanut butter that has 0g sugar (organic) to be sure you are not adding sugar. Regular peanut butter contains sugar. Good idea adding the chia seeds.

  10. How would you adapt this recipe to use frozen berries? Thaw berries? Or maybe microwave them? (I don’t have a lot of experience using frozen fruit other than smoothies. And fresh go bad before I can eat them.)

  11. Wow tried this today and it’s amazing! So
    Simple but feels like I totally upgraded my usual bowl of oatmeal or overnight oats.  Thanks for this recipe!!

    1. If you use one teaspoon of peanut butter it will lower the points. I also use a little less then a half a cup of oats to lower the points. It is still filling with the toppings.

    2. Did you do nutritional value or ingredients?  If I click on the WW personal points button it should calculate in your plan points on the app. Nutritional values doesn’t account for zero point items 

  12. Thanks, this sounds delish! Will definitely try the microwaved peanut butter tip. I use regular rolled oats and always microwave my oatmeal: put the oats and whatever “seasonings” you want in a serving bowl (I use a pinch of salt, 1 tsp of cinnamon, 2 T of flax seeds, and 1 Sweet n Low), stir them together a bit, add the water, micro on HI for 1 min 10 seconds or so – depends on the strength of the microwave. Remove, stir, top with fresh berries, nuts and milk.

    No fuss, no muss, no pot to clean up.
