  1. Whisk the milk, cocoa powder, turbinado sugar, and almond extract together in a saucepan over medium-low heat until the sugar has dissolved; bring the mixture to a simmer.
  2. Stir the mashed banana and oatmeal into the milk mixture; cook at a simmer until the oatmeal is thickened and the banana has broken up slightly, about 5 minutes. Fold the slivered almonds into the oatmeal to serve.


  • Cook's Note:
  • The size and sweetness of the fruit will effect the banana flavor, so taste and adjust accordingly.

This is a really good recipe, but I also found it rather rich for breakfast. I do love all the flavors but I think I'd cut back on the sugar and use less almond extract (or maybe just use vanill...

This oatmeal was really good, and an awesome source of potassium! I expected it to be bland, but it's great. I cut the recipe in half because I only wanted one serving, and it still worked out g...
