Banana and Coconut Oatmeal

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by Phil the Thrill

Oatmeal--it's so classic, but it's got to be one of the most versatile breakfast foods of all time. Here is one of the many ways that I have enjoyed oatmeal recently--it's so great and a good way to get in some fruit for the day. Serve with a glass of skim milk or a yogurt for a nutritious breakfast!

A nice change for oatmeal. I added a bit of coconut extract, too. Roxygirl
