Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal

A tried and true favorite, this cinnamon raisin oatmeal is super easy to make and oh so delicious. Plus it takes less than 10 minutes to whip up. It’s time to ditch those instant oatmeal packets!

This recipe is an EBF original, from back in the day when I would post everything I ate on the regular. Lots of my old posts include multiple recipes within a single post or recipes without photos. The horror, right?

I’m a very visual person and always like to see a picture of a recipe before trying it and I’m sure many of you are the same way so I’ve been looking through the archives for hidden gems to re-share and this recipe is one of those oldie but goodies.

Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal with Coconut Butter and Maple Syrup

It’s fun to bring some of the old recipes back to life.

Ditch the instant oatmeal packets and make this Homemade Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal -- it's healthier and takes less than 10 minutes to whip up!

This particular recipe is one I used to make ALL THE TIME as it was my go-to breakfast for quite a few years. The base recipe is always the same — oats, water, banana, cinnamon and raisins — but the toppings change depending on what nut butters I have on hand. This time around I used maple syrup and coconut butter because I just made a big batch of coconut butter last week, but any nut butter will taste amazing on this bowl. If you really want to stick with the cinnamon raisin theme, my cinnamon raisin almond butter would be perfect.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 banana, sliced (save a few for topping)
  • 1 Tablespoons raisins
  • 1/2 Tablespoon ground flaxseed (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 cup of water, non-diary milk or a blend of both
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut butter
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional)

Instructions

  1. Add oats, banana slices, raisins, flaxseed, cinnamon and sea salt to a pot. Add water and stir to combine. Heat over medium-high heat for 8-10 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed. Be sure to stir the oats several times while cooking to make sure the banana slices melt into the oats. You’ll know the oatmeal is done when all the liquid is absorbed and the oats are thick.
  2. Portion oats into a bowl and serve with coconut butter, maple syrup, banana slices, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

  1. Today will be the second day in a row I am making this feel good breakfast. Out with the flu and this recipe contains a few get-well ingredients. Adding a little bit of ginger, too. Thanks Brittany!!

  2. This looks amazing – I eat oatmeal everyday and absolutely love it!
    I also love using a combo of water and plant milk – works best for me! x
