Sweet caramelized bananas and smooth dark chocolate chips make this caramelized banana dark chocolate oatmeal feel more like a luxurious dessert than a healthy breakfast! (vegan, gluten-free)


  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1/2 medium banana, sliced
  • 1 tbsp dark chocolate chips*


  1. In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil. Stir in oats and reduce heat to low. Simmer until oats have absorbed all of the liquid, 3-5 minutes.
  2. While oats are cooking, spray a small non-stick skillet with olive oil. Add sliced bananas in a single layer and cook over medium heat until caramelized, about 3 minutes per side.
  3. Spoon oatmeal into a bowl and top with caramelized bananas, and chocolate chips.
