  1. Bring water and a pinch of regular salt to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in oats, reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and let stand 2 to 3 minutes. Top with banana, chocolate spread and flaky salt.

  • Steel-cut oats variation Bring 1 cup water and a pinch of salt to a boil in a small saucepan. Add ⅓ cup steel-cut oats, reduce heat to a bare simmer, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes.
