This warm and gooey salted caramel oatmeal is swirled with an easy date caramel sauce giving it that perfect blend of sweet and salty. Vegan + gluten-free. 


  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 1/41/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 23 Tablespoons date caramel sauce
  • almond milk for topping (optional)


  1. Place oats, water, banana slices and salt into a saucepan and bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cook stirring frequently until the oatmeal is cooked and creamy, about 5-7 minutes.
  2. Portion oatmeal into a bowl, drizzle date caramel sauce on top of oats and stir. Add a little almond milk on top, if using.


  • To lower the sugar content: skip the banana or use less date caramel sauce.
  • To up the protein content: stir in 1/2 -1 scoop of vanilla protein powder after cooking.
