Banana bread is one of my favorite quick breads, but sometimes I don’t have time to make a whole loaf of bread. That’s why this banana bread oatmeal is perfect for when the craving strikes!

Banana Bread Oatmeal Ingredients

This simple banana bread oatmeal is made with a few simple ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Truvia® Sweet Complete® Granulated All-Purpose Sweetener to taste
  • Truvia® Sweet Complete® Confectioner’s Sweetener​ sprinkled on top

I’ve been using stevia in my morning oatmeal for years, and lately, I’ve been reaching for Truvia® Sweet Complete® Granulated Sweetener. It’s sweetened with stevia with zero calories per serving and is a cup-for-cup replacement for sugar. From sweetening your morning oatmeal to measuring, baking, and browning in your favorite treats, Truvia® Sweet Complete® Granulated Sweetener is a once-and-for-all all-purpose sweetener. It’s also keto-friendly, if that’s your thing. It’s perfect in this oatmeal!

I also tried the new Truvia® Sweet Complete® Confectioner’s Sweetener which measures and sweetens like confectioners sugar in all of your favorite recipes. I added a sprinkle on top of my banana bread oatmeal and it was perfect!

Tips for Making Oatmeal in the Microwave

I like to make my oatmeal in the microwave because it’s fast and easy! Here are my tips for making oatmeal in the microwave:

  • Use a large bowl, as oatmeal will expand rapidly while cooking. Just to be safe, I use a bowl that holds about 6 cups when I’m cooking 1/2 cup of oats.
  • Add 1 cup of water for every 1/2 cup rolled oats.
  • Microwave for 2 1/2-3 minutes on 70% power. You may need to adjust slightly based on your microwave. By not cooking at full power, you can avoid the oatmeal boiling over.
  • After 2 1/2 minutes, carefully remove the oats from the microwave (the bowl will be very hot!) and stir vigorously. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes to thicken.
