From the Fairy Tale Cookbook, this is a lovely breakfast! Sometimes I add 2 tbls. raisins to the oats as I cook them. Popular in New England, Mid Atlantic, Southern, Mid West, West!
- 1 1⁄3 cups rolled oats (old fashioned or quick-cooking)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups milk
- 1 banana
- 1⁄2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1⁄4 cup flaked coconut or 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- Cook oats with salt, according to package directions using milk. Peel banana, cut it into thin slices with a dull knife, and place slices on top of the porridge. Add walnuts. Stir in nuts and banana slices into porridge.
- Spoon porridge into serving dishes. Sprinkle coconut or brown sugar on top of porridge. Serve hot with milk.
'At the table in the kitchen, there were three bowls of porridge. Goldilocks was hungry. She tasted the porridge from the first bowl. "This porridge is too hot!" she exclaimed.
So, she tasted the porridge from the second bowl. "This porridge is too cold," she said
So, she tasted the last bowl of porridge. "Ahhh, this Wee Bear Special Porridge is just right," she said happily and she ate it all up.' (The milk was replaced with a 5.6 ounce can of coconut milk diluted with filtered water to the 3 cup mark. Walnuts were garnished on top. Delicious and ~Tasty Dish~ approved!

This oatmeal is so yummy! Loved its creamy consistency and wonderful taste! The walnuts, coconut and banana went so well together and made for a highly satisfying lunch today. Mmmm!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this tasty, yet healthy treat with us, Sharon!
Made and reviewed for your Cookathon October 2010.
Great way to start the day. Creamy with lots of flavor. We both loved that there lots of walnuts and DH also loved the coconut. Made as written using 1% milk. Thanks for the healthy start to the day.
