Whipped Banana Oatmeal
- Ready In:
- 1⁄2 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
- 1 cup water (can use milk for even creamier oats)
- 1 pinch salt
- 1⁄2 banana, sliced
- 1 dash cinnamon (optional)
- 1 tablespoon raisins
- 1 tablespoon walnuts
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup, the real kind
- 1 tablespoon milk or 1 tablespoon cream
- combine oats and water or milk with banana, salt and cinnamon if using (sometimes i add raisins now to plump them up too).
- bring to a simmer over medium high heat and reduce to medium.
- stir vigorously and oats will take on a creamy look and not have as much of a shape individually, banana will mostly get beaten into them.
- cook until the consistency you like or most liquid is absorbed.
- top with nuts, syrup and cream, and the other half of the banana sliced if you want.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I live in MI with my family and am always on the lookout for new tasty recipes that even my toddler will like. He loves meat and pasta, most fruit and is getting better about veggies. I cook every meal 7 days a week, with the occasional lunch or dinner out (very occasional!) but I love cooking so it's not a bad thing to me. <br> <br>I am a big sweets eater and recently got an ice cream maker so I have been whipping up lots of ice cream. My favorite so far has been Ben and Jerry's heath bar crunch, it's so creamy and only lasts 2 days in this house! Other baked goods and homemade bread are favorites too, though not much bread gets baked in the summer. <br> <br>I hate doing dishes! We are currently house hunting and a dishwasher is a must (we don't have one right now). Luckily my dh is pretty good about helping out with the dishes :) <br> <br>I know it seems like I give lots of good reviews, but there is a good reason: I know what we like, so I pick dishes I think we will like, and often we do. If i give a review of a recipe with no stars it's because I think I did something wrong usually so that's why it didn't come out right. Or if something has excellent ratings and I don't like it, I don't want to ruin that, because obviously I didn't like something, but that's not a refection of the actual recipe! <br><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <br> <br>I dislike when people don't make the recipe correctly and give it a bad review. Ok, if you change one or two small things, fine, but if you make major changes, not ok. And when people give a bad review because it was good, but not what they are looking for? Sorry, but I don't get that. YOU picked it, if it tastes good but wasn't what you were looking for, not the recipe's fault :)
