The Ultimate Oatmeal - Banana, Chia and Date #RudelyAlternative with @RudeHealth #TryJanuary

The Ultimate Oatmeal
So far for #TryJanuary, I've provided #RudelyAlternative dairy-free recipes for Hot Chocolate, Almond Banana PancakesDairy-free Porridge, and a Turmeric Latté. In this post, I've saved one of the best till last... welcome to the 'Ultimate Oatmeal' - with banana, chia seeds, almonds and dates...

Oatmeal is ancient porridge, and it produces an incredibly smooth and satisfying warming breakfast (or snack). To get the most of your oatmeal, you are best to soak it overnight; it helps to plump up the texture, and provide a more satisfying meal.

In this recipe, I add bananas and chia seeds to the mix; to provide extra richness, and a creamier texture.

Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 100 ml Rude Health Oatmeal
  • 150 ml Rude Health Oat Drink
  • 150 ml cold water
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp of chopped dates
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Maple syrup and almond butter for topping


  • The night before:
    • Soak your oatmeal in a glass bowl with the water (stir before you leave it, to remove any lumps)
  • In the morning:
    • Add the soaked oatmeal to a medium sized saucepan, on a medium heat
    • Add the Oat Drink, dates, cinnamon, chia seeds and slice up the banana into the pan
    • Stir gently for 10 minutes, adding more hot water or Oat Drink until the consistency is as you like
    • Remove from the heat and transfer to your bowl(s)
    • Top the oatmeal with maple syrup, almond butter; and if you really like banana, another banana.
    • Enjoy!
