This simple banana and cream oatmeal is a quick breakfast! Paleo, Vegan and AIP, it uses only 4 ingredients!
I’ve been dreaming of a creating an AIP Vegan oatmeal recipe so three weeks ago I broke down and bought some raw coconut butter because I heard people raving about how delicious it was.
It’s not cheap though. If I had a blender that was worth any salt I would have just bought some unsweetened coconut flakes and whizzed it up.
Instead, I have to buy the $15 stuff which does taste AMAZING and is WORTH EVERY PENNY.
Anyhow, if you’ve bought raw coconut butter you know that the stuff is hard as a rock. You ‘ll have to soften it with warm water so you can mix the butter and the oils together and get coconut creaminess.
The Little is a banana eating fiend and one day I threw together ripe bananas, coconut butter, a pinch of salt and cinnamon.
I was blown away by how much it reminded me of soaked oatmeal. Banana and Cream oatmeal was born and I had created my first aip breakfast recipe.
Seriously there are two things I miss from my grain eating days and soaked oatmeal ranks at the top.
I quickly killed my jar of coconut butter and am eagerly awaiting my case from my food buying club.
First, this is not low carb. Shock!
Two, this is vegan! I know your mind is spinning. Paleo and Vegan in the same recipe and the world did not explode.
Three, I cheat and warm my coconut butter up in a saucepan until it’s nice and runny.
This really helps with the creaminess and oatmeal-like flavor. You can jazz up the Banana and Cream Oatmeal with berries and nuts.
What you’ll need for this recipe
- Coconut butter
- Sea salt
- Cinnamon power
Mash your banana and add the Celtic sea salt and cinnamon.
Warm the coconut manna/butter in sauce pan over low heat.
When it’s runny and warm remove from the heat and scoop it into the banana mixture.
Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
Notes and Variations
You can add additional toppings to the oatmeal like walnuts, berries or flaxseed.

oh my gosh! My youngest would LOVE this! she is obsessed with bananas!
I love how this looks. I will have to try this!
Honestly I hate real oatmeal so I might love this! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
The only thing I wonder about is how strong the coconut flavor is. I don’t know why, but I just hate that taste! Love the smell though!
It does a have strong coconut butter flavor Liz so it may not be your favorite.
Mmmmm! This sounds so good and yummy!
Looks really good!
I love coconut, and oatmeal. I hate bananas (with the exception of banana nut bread, which, I love). 🙂 My hubby & son loves bananas, though. So I’ll give it a try!
It looks super delish!
Wow, that looks awesome!
This looks wholesome! I also just bought a bottle of coconut oil (a bit pricey over here too) and I have to make this for the breakfast this weekend!
That does really look amazing.
Interesting! I’m a banana fan just about any way you make it.
Very creative recipe!
Now this is something I would absolutely love! Looks delicious!
this looks AMAZING!!!
It looks really yummy.
I love bananas and banana flavored stuff, but coconut is not a favorite of mine.
This looks healthy and satisfying!
I’ve never tried coconut butter… looks like a good recipe!
Looks very good!
This sounds amazing. IThanks for sharing.
Yum! I love bananas and I love oatmeal, so definitely want to try this.
Sounds yummy. I’ve got coconut butter in the cabinet waiting for me to do something with it. I think this is the thing.
That looks really good, but I love the pictures even more 🙂
This looks so good! I need to learn how to take photos like this!
Aw, thank you Colleen 🙂
This sounds like something I woudl love to eat right this moment.
Yet another delicious dish to try! Thanks again!
I eat a similar thing as dessert or for breakfast, depending on how many carbs I want to consume. I take a whole banana, nuke it up, mash it until it’s creamy. Add cinnamon and chopped pecans on top. Then I heat some full fat coconut milk (for fat content) and almond milk (for sweetness) together and pour over it the same way that I would for oatmeal. Sometimes I’ll add a couple of warmed up raisins (warming them bloats them and improves the flavor/juicyness). All this for someone who never liked bananas!
The next thing I want to try is grinding up the nuts and mixing them with the banana to make it more meal-y.
I like the idea of mixing in coconut butter. I think coconut oil would probably work, too. Thanks for the recipe!
Mazzy your recipe sound awesome! I have to cut back on nuts right now as they really give me skin issues.
Sounds yummy!! How do you make your own coconut butter? Also, Im interested in your food buying club. What is that exactly?
Hi Deborah 🙂 You buy coconut shreds and process them in your blender until you have a coconut paste. I tried this is my weaker blender/food processor and it did not work. I now have a Blendtec and it can do the job. I did see someone with a Ninja Blender who was also able to make it. On Thursdays I share frugal tips and one my upcoming post will be about how to create a food buying club.
You can also make coconut butter in a food processor.
I have a *Vitamix* and my attempt at homemade coconut butter was a major fail. It seems to be hit-or-miss for people, judging from Chocolate-Covered Katie’s post, and I’m not sure why.
Yeah it took me a while to get it too work too. This youtube video was really helpful – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMfkjGUX2ew
Oh my gosh this is good! I added some thawed frozen berries – very filling!
Thanks Diane! I’m so glad you liked it 🙂
I should be able to give this 10 stars. For real. This stuff should be illegal. I didn’t have coconut butter (ordered but it hasn’t arrived yet), so I used almond butter. ROCKIN’! I can’t wait to try the coconut butter…and maybe cashew butter. YEAH! 🙂
Thanks Stacy and using a nut butter as a replacement sounds awesome!
Oh, almond butter! Ok, very helpful substitution because I don’t have access to the coconut butter (or the budget anyway) and I was hoping there was an alternative 😉 Thanks!!
I hope you enjoy it!
Just made this after finding a link on another site for AIP friendly breakfast ideas. This was just delicious and wonderful. I’ve been missing oatmeal and love both bananas and coconut so it’s perfect. Thank you so much for figuring this out and writing it down!
I’m so glad that you enjoyed it Steffanie 🙂
I had this for dessert last night, and then again for breakfast this morning! It is so simple, but sooooo good!
Aw, I’m glad you enjoyed it Karyn 🙂
Thanks, this looks wonderful! Coconut butter is so expensive but I found something called creamed coconut (not the same thing as coconut cream) and it is EXACTLY the same thing as coconut butter only it was WAY cheaper!!! I found it next to the canned coconut milk. It comes in a small cardboard box. It’s called creamed coconut and the brand was “Let’s Do Organic” You can probably find it on amazon and it’ll save you a ton! I googled the difference between coconut butter and creamed coconut and it’s the same thing, also can be called coconut manna. 🙂
I’ll have to keep an eye out for it Rachel and I hope you enjoy it hun.
Can I use coconut oil and get the same results? I don’t have any coconut butter or flakes at the moment. I saw in the comments that someone used almond butter. Which do you think would be better substitute, coconut oil or almond butter?
Thank you so very much for all your recipes!
Almond butter would be better since it has more texture than coconut oil. Happy Eating Allyson.
It’s as good as it looks but I used half of the called for amount of coconut butter simply because it’s ridiculously expensive. My new favorite breakfast.
Yeah! I’m so glad you loved it Maria!
I just made my own coconut butter in the vitamix and it took a while but it finally worked! This recipe was delicious – I added blueberries, cinnamon and a couple chopped pecans. WONDERFUL!
Yum! I need to get a different jar so that my blender will do this!
This was so delicious!! It’s going to be my new go-to breakfast 🙂 Thank you so much!!!
I’m so glad you enjoyed it Helen!
Great base, but I gotta say, the thing that makes this work for me, and the thing that balances out the coconut and banana for me, is a little bit of lime juice…….. yum!
Lime sounds like an amazing addition hun!
Found this recipe on pinterest and it is so good! Thanks!
So glad you enjoyed it!
How would it be heating the banana? We really avoid consuming raw fruit with other items since it digests at different speeds and ferments in your stomach causing digestive issues.
I think that would be fine hon 🙂
Thank you for this recipe. It’s even better than oatmeal, which I shouldn’t eat anymore but love on chilly mornings. This is delicious!
So glad you enjoyed it!
Can you refridgerate and reheat this? or does it get gross?
It would not do well refrigerated and would turn dark brown.
Added coconut yogurt to this to make it a bit more creamy as mine was a bit pasty and it was SOO good!
This is amazing. It takes likes cinnamon batter 🤤
Plus it is so easy!
Thank you for this recipe!!
So glad you enjoyed it Tiffany!
I just made this after pouting over not having any thing AIP that’s hot for breakfast. I haven’t made coconut milk for most recipes, so this looked promising. I had to stop and thank you it is so good! I added shredded coconut and sliced tiger nuts for the oatmeal texture. I even added a splash of the hot water I had for my tea to warm and make it even more creamy. This is a new favorite here!
So glad you enjoyed it!
