This Earl Grey Oatmeal is fun way to flavor your breakfast bowl. These oats are steeped in earl grey tea and naturally sweetened with banana. This will become your favorite easy healthy breakfast.


  • 1 cup soy milk (or plant based milk of preference)
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cinnamon stick or 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 earl grey tea bag
  • 1 cup rolled oats (or clearly marked gluten-free rolled oats)
  • 1 small banana, mashed or cut into coins
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. In a medium sauce pan, add in your milk, water, cinnamon stick and tea bag. Bring the mixture to a low simmer for 2-3 minutes to allow the tea to infuse.
  2. Remove the tea bag with a spoon or spatula and carefully squeeze out any additional liquid from your tea bag into the milk.
  3. To the milk, add in your remaining ingredients and stir well. Allow the oatmeal to continue to simmer and thicken for at least 3-5 minutes while stirring frequently, then serve as desired.


Make sure to continuously stir your oats. As your oats cook, continue to stir the mixture until thickened. Stirring helps to evenly thicken your oats into a creamy consistency.

Don’t skip the pinch of salt. You just need a little dash of it here, but it helps to bring out a lot of the natural sweetness in this recipe further.

Use milk for a creamy texture. While you can do these oats with just water, the true creamy nature of the oats is enhanced with the creaminess of your milk. So do not skip or replace.
