Banana Nut Oatmeal

I love oatmeal for breakfast, but I don't want to develop an oatmeal rut. like our cheerios rut.

I've been playing around with different oatmeal additives and combinations. Loved this one!

You will need:

  • 2 C uncooked oatmeal, plain 
  • 4 Tbsp all natural peanut butter, (I like smooth) 
  • 2 C milk
  • 2 C water 
  • 1tsp cinnamon 
  • 4 Tbsp chopped walnuts 
  • 4Tbsp coarsely ground flax seed 
  • 2 bananas, sliced for topping
  • brown sugar for topping (optional)
  • milk for serving
Bring water and milk just to a boil (watch you don't over boil it like I frequently do!). 

Stir in oatmeal, peanut butter, and cinnamon. Reduce heat and boil gently for 3-5 minutes or until mixture thickens and becomes uniform.

Remove from heat. Stir in walnuts and flax seed. Serve in bowls with desired amount of milk and top with bananas and brown sugar. Delicious!

You can of course play around with different nuts and fruit. Raisins are really good!
