- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt (optional)
- 1 cup nonfat milk

- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- banana, slices (to garnish) (optional)
- coarsely chopped walnuts (to garnish) (optional) or pecans (to garnish) (optional)

- In medium bowl, combine milk, egg and oil; blend well. Add to dry ingredients all at once; mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. (Do not overmix.)
