Raise your hand if you like banana-nut bread oatmeal. What’s that? You’ve never had it? In that case, here’s a recipe I created for ya (actually, the recipe is so simple that I don’t think I can really claim I “created” it).
Banana Nut Bread Oatmeal
1/2 cup oats (or 1/4cup oat bran)
2/3 cup non-dairy milk
1/3 cup water (or you can omit the water and increase the soymilk amount to 1 cup)
1/2 a banana, mashed
2 tablespoons walnuts, chopped or crushed
Optional: 1-2 tablespoons sugar (I don’t put it in mine, but when I make this for my mom, she likes about 1 tablespoon added.)
1. In small pot, stir together the oats, milk, water, and optional sugar.
2. Cook until almost done, then add nuts and banana.
3. Stir in the banana and nuts, and leave the heat on until the banana warms up (warm banana = caramelized goodness)
Here’s a picture, except the picture is with oat bran (which, if possible, I love even more than oatmeal).
Ahhhh the creaminess…
