Brown Sugar & Banana Oatmeal Recipe

Brown Sugar & Banana Oatmeal Recipe

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

"This is a great recipe to, I think the extra ingredients add just the right amount of sweetness without adding too much sugary items. I also like switching out banana for blueberries, or adding both!"

"This was delicious! I did add extra oats, b/c the mixture was too thin for me."

"While I was boiling the milk, my 4 year old sliced the bananas, it's just as quick as the packets of oatmeal but tastes so much better. It made just enough for 3, just like it said, the 2 year old loved it too!"
