5 Bowls512 cals

Today, we take your healthy breakfast oatmeal to the next level with this super easy Slow Cooker Banana Bread Protein Oatmeal! This recipe only takes a couple minutes to prep and is guaranteed to change your morning routine!

All you do for this one is simply add into your optionally lined slow cooker 2 cups of steel cut oats, 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, 2 broken up bananas, 2 tablespoons of a sweetener, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, 4 scoops of vanilla or chocolate protein powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 2 tablespoons of melted butter, 4 cups of unsweetened vanilla milk substitute, and 4 cups of water.

What does optionally lined mean? Well, if you hate cleaning up your slow cooker after you meal prep like me, you can use a slow cooker liner. If you can’t find them locally or just don’t have time, I link them below!

Finish this slow cooker banana bread by mixing everything together while mashing in your bananas.

Mashing your bananas before adding them into your slow cooker will speed this process up.

That’s it, you’re done! Easy, right?

Throw your lid on and cook your slow cooker banana bread for around 9-10 hours on high. You’ll know it’s done when most of your liquid has been absorbed.

Oh and be prepared for your whole house to smell AMAZING!!!

Meal Prep

All done? Let it cool and portion it out into however many servings you want. I usually make 5 servings and each serving is around 450 grams.

You can eat this slow cooker banana bread cold or reheat it in the microwave for a minute with a little extra milk if it’s too thick.

I always top mine with some crushed up pecans and extra banana slices but the choice is yours.

If there’s a recipe that’ll make you buy a slow cooker, it’s this one!
