I loooove bananas and oats together and this banana oatmeal is super delicious, especially with the added flavor of the coconut oil. When I was a child, I absolutely hated oatmeal. The mushy texture of it just didn’t work well so I avoided it altogether. As I grew older, I tried to find ways to enjoy it because it is a known superfood with wonderful health benefits including keeping you satisfied until lunch!
I realized that in order for me to really enjoy oatmeal I had to add texture to it. Meaning, I had to put chunks of fruit or nuts in order to resolve my issue with the mushy texture. I also don’t cook my oatmeal to death, which really makes it mushy in my opinion, I cook the oats until they are slightly soft. The good news about this banana oatmeal recipe is that you can cook your oats as short or long as you want, it will still come out delicious!
You can certainly make this for your toddler! For younger babies you will need to ensure the consistency is very soft and get the thumbs up from your doctor before introducing new foods.
