Healthy Oatmeal-Banana With Peanut Butter

Oatmeal can help with weight loss because it contains soluble fibre, which can keep you full longer. Peanut butter has a low glycemic index. A 2009 study, published in the ‘American Journal of Clinical Nutrition’, found that having peanut butter twice a week was associated with less weight gain over an eight-year period. The fibre content of bananas may promote weight loss by increasing the feeling of fullness and reducing appetite.


  • 2 cups of rolled oats
  • 1/2 golden banana, sliced
  • 2 tbsp natural, organic peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 4 cups of water
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp of unsweetened dark chocolate flakes


  • Bring the water to a boil in a pan. Add the oatmeal and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the oats are tender. They will also absorb most of the water.
  • Add the banana slices, peanut butter, and agave syrup and mix well.
  • Add milk, stir, add dark chocolate flakes as a topping. Enjoy!
