Directions

5 mins to prep

10 mins to cook

  1. Step 1

    Add oats, cacao nibs, cinnamon and cacao powder to a pot, toast for a minute.

  2. Step 2

    Add the oat milk and maple syrup to the oats and stir through. Bring to the boil and allow the oats to absorb the liquid. Just stir gently once or twice to make sure it isn't sticking to the bottom. Lower the heat.

  3. Step 3

    Peel the banana and slice it into long rounds.

  4. Step 4

    Once the oats are cooked, spoon into a bowl and place the bananas and raspberries around the edge. Sprinkle with the white chocolate, if using. Serve warm.

Variation

Lots of other toppings go nicely on here too -- try strawberries, cherries, slivered almonds, or toasted cashews to mix things up!
