Caramelized Banana Oatmeal
Oatmeal can take on so many different flavors thanks to the different plant-based milks we can use and toppings we choose. For this recipe, we have used fresh hazelnut almond milk which makes this oatmeal extra creamy and gives it a delicious distinct flavor. Topped with caramelized cinnamon banana, dates, yogurt and fresh peanut butter made in the NutraMilk. Yummy!

- 1 cup hazelnut almond milk made with the NutraMilk
- 3 bananas, sliced into rounds
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- sprinkle of cinnamon
- dash of vanilla
- sea salt, chocolate chips, peanut butter, yogurt and other desired toppings
