~Banana Craisin Oatmeal~

Add 1 more ingredient-
1 sliced Banana
It's gotten a bit chillier in the morning!  Today it's s-n-o-w-i-n-g!  This kind of weather reminds me that a hot bowl of cereal filled with oats tastes so good for breakfast.  A bowl of Craisin Creamy Oatmeal!  Looking over at our fruit bowl "I spied" a Banana.  Before I knew it, the Banana was sliced & added into the pot with the other ingredients for our hot oatmeal cereal.  It was a change up in the flavor.  A great change with that added Potassium filled Banana!  WoW!!!

Treat yourself to this hearty fruit filled breakfast on a chilly day!

I remember when you showed the Craisins and I found them in the store...less sugar too! I love them in oatmeal but I like sliced and diced apples instead of the banana. Sounds good right now! Warms your tummy! Hugs!
