This is a breakfast my son and I enjoy. It is quick and easy to make. I make this in the microwave but you can make it on the stove if you prefer. Microwaves do vary so adjust cooking time accordingly.
- 1 1⁄2 cups milk
- 3⁄4 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1 large banana, sliced and smashed
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Mix all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl.
- Microwave on high for three minutes.
- Stir and serve.
I mixed up about two-thirds of this recipe for myself (when I have oatmeal, I like a LOT of oatmeal ;) ). It makes a creamy, filling and nourishing bowlful! If using unsweetened soymilk and natural peanut butter, as I did, I'd recommend adding just a touch of salt to bring out the sweetness of the banana. I was generous with the peanut butter, too. Thanks for a quick oatmeal I'll definitely repeat!
No excuse for not eating breakfast! This is so quick, hearty and creamy, I really enjoyed it. Like a reviewer below mentioned, I used natural PB and rice milk, so I added a pinch of salt. I also used regular oats instead of quick (worked fine) and served with some brown sugar. 1/2 the batch made a perfectly sized portion for me. I'm sure I'll make this many more times, and might play around with other nut butters. Thanks very much!
Super yummy oatmeal! I doubled the recipe for three of us but it really is rich, so the single serving would have been plenty. I also doubled the peanut butter in each bowl, and next time I'll try the single tbs suggested. Really really good, thanks for the keeper!
