Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal

I woke up Saturday wanting to try something different for breakfast.  I remembered finding this recipe a while ago and just happened to have all the ingredients on hand.   This oatmeal turned out really well.  Next time I would add a little cinnamon, but other than that it was great.  The texture of this oatmeal is really doughy and creamy, and the banana peanut butter combo is always delicious.

  • 1 heaping cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tsp sugar (more or less to taste)
  • 1/4 cup flax seed meal (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds (optional)
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • sprinkle of cinnamon

Combine all ingredients except the banana into a saucepan.  Bring mixture to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes.  Add mashed banana and let simmer until milk is absorbed and oats are tender, about 2 more minutes.  Add a sprinkle of cinnamon before serving.
