This delicious and healthy raw breakfast oatmeal pudding is packed with flavor and nutrients! It’s simple to make and requires minimal/basic ingredients.
I have oatmeal for breakfast at least a few mornings a week and it never gets old. I’m obsessed with overnight oatmeal, baked oatmeal and traditional oatmeal cooked over the stovetop. I thought it would be fun to experiment with a different version of oatmeal just to switch it up. I created this no-cook apple banana oatmeal pudding and it’s one of my new favorite healthy breakfasts! I’ve been sharing it with Emma and she’s just as into it as I am! I found this oatmeal pudding to be so satisfying and it kept me full until lunchtime.
Not only is this oatmeal pudding delicious, but I also love how healthy the recipe is. This oatmeal pudding is vegan and gluten-free (if you buy certified gluten-free oats). This recipe is naturally sweetened with the apple and banana. I found it to be sweet enough with just the fruit, but if you opt for a sweeter oatmeal feel free to add 1 tbsp of maple syrup.
This apple banana oatmeal pudding is so simple to make and requires very minimal/simple ingredients: oats, cinnamon, almond milk (you can use any milk), apple and banana – that’s it! You can add any superfoods you like such as maca powder or for some protein you can add a scoop of protein powder. However, I wanted to keep the ingredients for this recipe really simple for those of you who don’t have any superfoods or protein powder at home. I felt like most people had some oats, cinnamon, milk, apple and banana at their house 🙂
To make oatmeal into a pudding-like consistency you simply soak the oats and cinnamon in almond milk overnight (this softens the oats plus makes them easier to digest) and in the morning add the oatmeal mixture plus half of an apple and half of a banana into a blender and blend it until it reaches a pudding-like consistency. There is no cooking required, which makes this recipe so easy! I then pour the oatmeal pudding into a bowl and it can be enjoyed with no toppings at all, or I like to add some grain-free granola and a drizzle of nut butter on top. You could also add some fresh fruit on top.Raw Apple Banana Oatmeal pudding: The vegan & gluten-free breakfast that you MUST make!Click To Tweet
You can use any blender when blending the oatmeal with the apple and banana, but I wanted to make mention of my new blender that is my current obsession! I recently received a Blendtec blender and it’s truly the best blender I’ve ever used in my life. It’s user-friendly, works like a dream and is top-quality. The motor is so powerful and can blend anything imaginable. This blender is more than just a normal kitchen appliance because it does many things such as make smoothies, ice cream, salsa, whole juice and hot soup. I have the designer 725 model, but I’ve heard amazing things about all of them. I just found out that Blendtec is currently offering $100 off refurbished designer 625 series blenders plus free shipping until March 31st!
I hope you make this raw oatmeal breakfast pudding – there’s so many different varieties you can try! You can get creative and use any fruit! I imagine a peanut butter and banana combination would also be amazing!
