This recipe serves 2, but can easily be doubled.
  • 20g chopped walnut pieces
  • 80g rolled oats
  • 500ml (2 cup + 4 teaspoons) water or milk
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons dark brown sugar, or to taste
  • 150g (about ½ cup) Greek yogurt
  • 1 large banana, thinly sliced
  • 20g (2 tablespoon) chopped semisweet chocolate pieces
  1. In a dry frying pan placed over low heat, toast the walnut pieces until golden and fragrant, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine oats, water or milk, cinnamon and sugar. Place over medium-high heat and allow to come to a boil, stirring regularly.
  3. Once the oats have come to a boil, continue cooking over medium-high heat, stirring regularly, until the mixture thickens, 3-5 minutes.
  4. Once the oats have thickened, divide over two serving bowls. Top with the yogurt, banana, toasted walnut pieces and chocolate. Serve immediately.
