Banana Oatmeal Recipe

Now let me just share with you, Mik absolutely hates oatmeal. While I adore oatmeal and could eat it every single day, Mik has never liked it and finds the texture to be too mushy! He was always jealous of my easy breakfast option when I would make stove top oats, and would try so hard to eat and enjoy it! When I made this mug cake ( using the same ingredients as my morning bowl of oatmeal) he was absolutely shocked at the result! He said it tasted like banana cake and that the oats had a great texture! Highly recommend this recipe if you’re someone who is a little sceptical of oatmeal. It’s a game changer!

I remember being in a dorm where we only had a microwave. Back then, I would eat junk because I felt like I had limited options! This is a great healthy recipe that involves no equipment, fuss free and tastes absolutely heavenly.

    You never gave the recipe.
    You only gave the ingredients, but nothing of how much of each ingredient so I couldn’t make it.
