Wake up to this tasty, satisfying bowl of oatmeal that is made with milk instead of water. It is a great way to use up overripe banana!


  1. In a small saucepan, combine milk, salt and 3/4 cup water; heat over medium heat until steaming hot, but not boiling.
  2. Add oats and cook, stirring until creamy, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in mashed banana and 1 tablespoon maple syrup.
  4. Divide between 2 bowls, garnish with walnuts and a little more maple syrup and serve.
