I do love a good old fashioned bowl of oatmeal. And I love playing around with flavors. Maple and brown sugar, cinnamon and apples, honey, or plain with butter and sugar like my mom used to make!
3 c fat-free milk
3 TBLS firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
2 c Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
2 medium-size ripe bananas, mashed or sliced (about 1c)
Drizzle of Honey
In saucepan, bring milk, brown sugar, and spices to a gentle boil; stir in your oats. Return to a boil; reduce heat to medium. Cook 1 minute for quick oats, 5 minutes for old fashioned oats, or until most of liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally. Remove oatmeal from heat. Stir in mashed bananas and pecans and a drizzle of honey.
