Creamy Banana Oatmeal

There was one Banana in the fruit bowl this morning!  Now, I can remember when gazing over to a brown spotted Banana in the morning was not very appealing.  The reasoning - it did not have that "just right for eating at lunchtime" appearance.   But ... on these chilly mornings a hearty breakfast of Creamy Banana Oatmeal tastes so good!  The lonely spotted Banana that contains Potassium sure helps make a yummy & healthy breakfast!

I follow the directions on the Quaker Old Fashioned Oat canister.  O.K., I admit one of the large packages of the dual pack of Quaker Old Fashioned Oats purchased from Costco has been divided and stored in my pantry.  You know how I like to prepare foods using Old Fashioned Oats and enjoy their taste!  :)  The large box purchased from Costco is not really that big!

Soy Milk, along with Cinnamon, NutmegRaisins &/or Craisins, Brown Sugar (optional), and the Banana (sliced) are combined in a sauce pot.  I do not use Salt.  The Soy Milk replaces Whole or Low Fat Milk. 

Let the ingredients in the pot sit for 5 minutes before starting to cook according to directions on canister.  The result is a creamy Oatmeal with a delicious taste of Banana. A great breakfast before heading outdoors!

Do you prepare Oatmeal for breakfast?
Enjoy!
Yummy!

Your oatmeal sounds great!
My husband makes the oatmeal, in the microwave, with just salt. So much better than the packets. I love it, but I put whatever I like in it. Your additions sound great!

I always think of a banana on cold cereal but I'd like to try this! I usually eat an egg and whole wheat toast for breakfast but I LOVE oatmeal! I am going to mix it up and have oatmeal more often this winter. I usually put blueberries or fresh cherries on top. I LOVE fruit! Hugs! ♥
