Notes From Mr Breakfast:
Thanks to "Griffin" who has submitted a couple oatmeal recipes to the site. I've been making a couple of the recipes today (6/11/11) that people have submitted and thought I might make a couple of suggestions about this one.
This recipe is very nice with just the bananas. So if you don't have strawberries, just make it without them. You could also add a Tablespoon of strawberry jam as a replacement. Swirl it in the serving bowl for optimum presentation.
I liked adding a Tablespoon of brown sugar to this oatmeal (stirred in with the bananas). Bananas and brown sugar have a special relationship. The slight tinge of molasses in the sugar complements bananas in almost any dish.
For a final garnish, consider a sprinkling of shredded coconut... a tropical finish to an already fabulously fruity breakfast.
A healthy breakfast that should satisfy any fruit lover. Also try adding pineapple or any of your favorite fruits.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank Griffin for this recipe.
