Banana Cream Oatmeal
In a large sauce pan, bring the water to a boil.
- 4 cups water
2 cups quick-cooking oats
2 medium bananas - sliced into thin coins
1/2 cup non-fat sweetened condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Add the oats. Immediately reduce heat to medium. Cook for one minute - stirring often. Remove from heat.
Add the banana slices and condensed milk to the oats and stir to mix. Cover the pan and let it set for 2 or 3 minutes, or until desired thickness is reached.
Serve warm, sprinkled with cinnamon. Top with chopped walnuts or pecans and a splash of cold milk for a nice final touch.
Note From Mr Breakfast:
Thanks to "Britney" for submitting this recipe. I tried it and I loved it with a couple slight modifications.
I used 3 banana. I mashed 2 of them and stirred them into the oats. I sliced the other into coins and served those on top. I found 1/2 cup condensed milk to be a little too sweet, so I took that down to 1/3 cup.

My kids love this. They ask for it just as much as they do store-bought cereals. I hope you like it too.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank Britney for this recipe.
