Banana Bread Oatmeal

YUM!! I love bananas in any form and I really love banana bread (have you seen my recipe index with all kinds of banana bread muffins?!). Today I took my banana love to the next level and made banana bread oatmeal. OH MY GOODNESS!! It was so delicious! It tastes exactly like banana bread, but only takes a fraction of the time to make!

Banana Bread Oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup oats of choice
  • 1/4 cup vanilla greek yogurt
  • 1/2 small banana, mashed
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • OPTIONAL: 1.5 teaspoon walnuts

In a small container or bowl combine greek yogurt, mashed banana, cinnamon, vanilla and walnuts (if desired).

In a separate microwave safe bowl microwave oats with 1/3 cup of water for half of the recommended cooking time. 

After half of the cooking time remove from the microwave and add in combine banana and greek yogurt mix. Microwave for the remaining cooking time.

Garnish with additional banana slices if desired.
