Brown Sugar & Banana Oatmeal Recipe

Publisher Photo
Oatmeal is a favorite breakfast food, quick, easy and filling. I came up with this version by using some of the same ingredients from my favorite breakfast smoothie. Add bran cereal for a heartier taste and more fiber. A brown sugar substitute and soy milk also blend in well. —Jessi Rizzi, Odenton, Maryland

MY REVIEW

So delish! I like a few less bananas, though. Almost doesn't need extra sweetener.

Very quick and easy. My family loved it. I didn't have bananas So I used 1/2 cup applesauce. Although we love bananas So next time I'll use that.

My kids really liked this and scraped their bowls clean!! I often turn to instant oatmeal packets for quick breakfasts before school, but this is very "do-able" on a weekday morning and I feel better about feeding it to my kids. Keeper!!

Very easy . . .uses on-hand ingredients. Delicious and nutritious! I make this regularly for my kiddos instead of the instant oatmeal packets. It's so much better for them.
