Very tasty and very easy breakfast. On its own, the nutritional breakdown may be enough to encourage you to give this a try. Although a small bowl of oatmeal, it is filling, loaded with banana flavor, and simply tastes pretty darn good. Used plain oatmeal, Silk Almond Milk, garnished with some banana slices and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. This one's going into my favorites folder.
I have made this three times so far. Instead of instant oatmeal, I used one half cup of regular oats. I did add a sprinkling of nutmeg. To sweeten it, once I drizzled it lightly with honey and the last two times, I added one packet of Truvia sweetener. I actually microwaved it for three and a half minutes. Extremely filling and gave me enough energy to make it through the morning and do everything I needed to do. This recipe's a keeper.
I modified this recipe for stove top and to serve 4 as follows: 1.5 cups whole rolled oats; 2 ripe bananas pureed with honey in a blender; 1.5 cups soy milk; dash of cinnamon & nutmeg. I cooked the oats in the boiling soy milk for about 5 minutes then I stirred in the pureed bananas and added the cinnamon and nutmeg and cooked for two minutes more. Then I ladled into four bowls and topped with whole pecans and a sprinkling of brown sugar. Very tasty and definitely a keeper!
Oatmeal hasn't tasted this good!! Made this a couple of times this week already. As per recipe it's really good. I've since added ground flax seed and granola for crunch. Ty for sharing!
