banana bread oatmeal

We are a breakfast-loving group over here and I'm always looking for new foods to try out with my kids so that we don't fall into the same rut each day. They weren't really fans of oatmeal until recently. If you love banana bread, this oatmeal tastes exactly like it, but you know, healthier. 

  • 1 very ripe banana 
  • 1 cup of milk (your choice- almond, soy, we use whole milk) 
  •  1/2 tsp vanilla 
  • oats of your choice (we use 5 minute oats from Trader Joe's)
  • almonds/pecans/nuts of your choice 

  • Break the banana up in chunks and throw in the blender with the whole milk and vanilla. Blend until fairly smooth  
  • Pour mixture into pot and bring to a boil. 
  • Add oats and cook according to package.
  • Garnish with your favorite chopped nuts of choice. 

Super simple, really filling and delicious without any added sugar! We've been rotating 
this through the breakfast menu at least once a week.
