Peanut Butter Banana Oats

Oats, glorious oats!

Just when I think I'm going to get tired of eating oatmeal every other day, another way of making it interesting comes around. Here's another:

Not much to look at, but pretty tasty, my friends.
Peanut Butter Banana Oats
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1 banana, cut into bite-sized pieces
Dash of cinnamon
2 TB crunchy peanut butter (or any nut butter)

Toppings: flax seeds, sesame seeds, chia seeds, or more fruit (blueberries are tasty)

In a medium saucepan on medium high, combine the first three ingredients. Stir as oats bubble and cook, for 5 minutes or so. Remove from heat.

Add the banana, cinnamon and peanut butter. Top with anything else you like. Yum. Add bacon if you want it Elvis-style. I'm just sayin'. Stir until banana is melty and enjoy piping hot.

Happy eating!
