Banana and Coconut Oatmeal

Banana and Coconut Oatmeal created by mommyluvs2cook

Oatmeal--it's so classic, but it's got to be one of the most versatile breakfast foods of all time. Here is one of the many ways that I have enjoyed oatmeal recently--it's so great and a good way to get in some fruit for the day. Serve with a glass of skim milk or a yogurt for a nutritious breakfast!

    I kind of changed this recipe some, but I still think it's a 5 star recipe :) I used milk in the oatmeal in place of water and almonds for the walnuts. Used coconut flakes cause that's all I had. So yummy and will make again!!

    A nice change for oatmeal. I added a bit of coconut extract, too. Roxygirl

    This was a nice change of pace. I used only half a banana though as i wanted the coconut flavor to be stronger. I sprinkled a few chocolate chips in it for my toddler who then gobbled it all up. (she need a new twist on oatmeal too!) Thanks for posting - will DEFINITELY make it again!
