Recipe by Mandy

I had some dried banana & wasn't sure what to do with it so thought I'd give it a go in my porridge

This is a good way to spice up your oatmeal. I used walnuts instead of dates, since I didn't have any. I love dried bananas, they are so flavorful. The only slight negative is that the flavor does get a little lost in this. But still -- a great breakfast.
