This recipe was submitted to us by a user named 'Chickapea'. I made it this morning (June 2013) and thought it was great. Based on a couple user comments since it was added to the site, I reduced the maple syrup and honey to 2 teaspoons each. That provided just the right amount of sweetness. The amount of water I used to make my oats was 3/4 cup. The oatmeal tasted vaguely like banana pancakes. Chopped walnuts made a perfect garnish for each serving.
- 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon honey
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
1 small banana
lowfat or fatfree milk
How To Make Pancake Oatmeal
Mix quick cooking oats together slightly with desired amount of water, microwave for about 1 1/2 mins. Mix in desired amount of milk (it all depends on how soupy or thick you want it).
Stir in cinnamon, maple syrup,and the fruit (if using any). Once all the ingredients are together, drizzle the honey on top and enjoy!
I don't really do the measurements on any of the ingredients except for the oats, I do it all to my preferred taste ^-^.
You can also cook the oats with milk instead of water, but I like to add the milk after to cool it down a bit. I also suggest using real maple syrup for this oatmeal.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank Chickapea for this recipe.
