How about this delicious Banana Split Oatmeal for breakfast? I have been wanting to make it for a long time, ever since I had gluten-free vegan banana split at Present Moments Cafe  in St. Augustine, Florida.

We had just relocated to Florida and I was longing to go to the beach, so while my hubby was at work. I took the children to visit St. Augustine. It is the oldest city in the U.S. known for its beautiful old Spanish architecture and its lovely beaches.

We had a beautiful time visiting this lovely town and knew that we would visit several times after. Anyway, we stopped and ate delicious lunch at the cafe and to this day I still remember their delicious Banana Split Sundae.

To make my delicious Banana Split Oatmeal, I first made a creamy oatmeal with coconut milk. Coconut milk makes everything rich and creamy! You can substitute any other non-dairy milk.

I then carefully split a banana lengthwise with a knife, top it with the oatmeal, cashew cream. strawberries, blueberries, hemp seeds and coconut flakes. It was such a delicious treat!
