Banana Orange Oatmeal Recipe

Note From Mr Breakfast:

I recently made this oatmeal (June 2013). I found it enjoyable, but the orange flavor is almost overpowering. I would suggest using 1 cup water and 1 cup orange juice for the liquid. Then right before you serve, stir in just a little additional orange juice to taste - just a couple Tablespoons works for me. I also added 2 teaspoons brown sugar for just a touch more sweetness.

Serve with a little milk on top for a creamier texture and taste.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank MrSpinach for this recipe.

I loved it, and I didn't have brown sugar, which turned out to be good. Because it is sweet... and so yummy.

Way too sweet and tart - we couldn't even finish it... it may be better with less oj maybe just 1/4c. instead of 2 and use water to make up the rest.

A little too sweet... the type of food you can only eat a little of.

The orange juice gives this a tangy taste. I prefer a creamier oatmeal, so I this was good w/ a bit of yogurt or half and half. I like that it''s sweet enough w/ nothing added, but I think honey would taste good so I might try that sometime.
