In a small saucepan, combine oats, banana (if using), water and cocoa, cinnamon, 1/4 cup blueberries, vanilla and salt (depending on the above recipe). Simmer until water has absorbed into the oats, stirring frequently to prevent burning, for about 4-6 minutes.
Place into a small bowl and add toppings according to which above recipe you're making. Add a splash of unsweetened almond milk and sweeten with a packet (or 2) of stevia, if desired and enjoy!
*Toppings and add-ins are completely optional. Feel free to top oats with your favorite ingredients and what you may have on hand-on. If there is a topping, like pistachios, that you don't happen to have, just leave it out.
*Nutritional information is entered for the Coach's Oats only. Use My Fitness Pal or another nutritional calculator to add toppings and mix-ins.
