One of my favorite breakfasts. I invented this version, but my Mom deserves some credit for it too. It can be mixed the night before, and refrigerated in a covered bowl/microwave safe container. In the morning all you have to do is microwave it and mix in the peanut butter.


  1. Break banana into chunks and put into a small blender jar.
  2. Add the skim milk.
  3. Liquify in blender.
  4. Put the dry oatmeal in a microwave safe bowl. (If you want to mix it ahead of time, use a small microwave safe dish which has a lid).
  5. Pour the banana mixture on top of the oatmeal.
  6. Stir well, to incorporate all the oatmeal.
  7. Microwave (uncovered) on high setting for 90 seconds.
  8. Stir.
  9. Microwave again for about 90 seconds.
  10. If it starts to rise over the top of the bowl, stop the cooking, because it is most likely already done!
  11. Stir in peanut butter.

I thought this was a great quick breakfast that really fills you up. I halved the recipe and only needed 1 minute total cooking time. I also used vanilla soy milk instead of regular skim milk. This oatmeal was very thick, so I think next time I'll increase the milk a bit or try it with skim. Thanks!

I have oatmeal in some form 2 to 3 times a week and am always on the look out for new and different ways to try it. I had some very ripe bananas and this recipe caught my eye. The peanut butter was my homemade peanut butter and I reserved some of the banana to cut in chunks and add to the finished product. The banana mixed with the milk adds an extra dimension of creamy to the oats. A nice change of pace.

YUMMY! I am a big fan of anything with peanut butter and banana and this was no exception. I was looking for a quick oatmeal recipe that used banana in it when I ran across this recipe with the bonus of peanut butter added! I didn't want to drag out the blender so I just mashed my banana really well with a fork and whisked in soy milk before adding it to the oatmeal and microwaving for about 2 minutes. I added some cinnamon and stirred in some natural peanut butter and my banana was so ripe and sweet that no extra sugar was needed. Thank you for a wonderfully delicious and easy breakfast that warmed me right up. This will become a staple in my weekday breakfast menu.
