Makes 2 hearty servings

  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2-1/4 cups water
  • 1 medium banana, mashed
  • 1 Tbs peanut butter (I love chunky the best)
  • 2 packets Splenda, optional
  • yogurt or milk for topping
  • dash of cinnamon
  1. Put water in a medium saucepan with lid and set over HIGH heat till it boils. 
  2. Add the oats, stir and replace lid.  Turn heat to LOW and simmer till oats are cooked, about 6 minutes.
  3. Turn off heat, stir in mashed banana and peanut butter.  Replace lid and let rest for another few minutes.
  4. Stir in Splenda, if using, and divide oat mixture between 2 serving bowls.
  5. Add a bit of yogurt or milk of choice and a sprinkling of cinnamon.
