Baked Banana Oatmeal - almost Too Sinful to be called Breakfast!
Baked Banana Oatmeal - I spied this recipe at Kath Eats Real Food. Confession time - I LOVE oatmeal for breakfast. Period. I used to eat Instant Oatmeal and was happy. But I didn't know any better, I had not experienced the wonderful goodness of Old-Fashioned Oatmeal. Oh My - I just savor the creamy goodness! I LOVE bananas as well. So the combination of Oatmeal and Bananas - had to be a winner! And it was! The smell alone was delicious!
Note - I used Steel Cut oats only because I had them, needing to be used. Had bought them to try out, just wasn't Wow'd. I really like my Old Fashioned Oats so much! BUT with that being said, this recipe made the Steel Cut Oats SO YUMMY!
