Banana Bread Oatmeal

A creamy, comforting bowl of oatmeal that smells like banana bread! Cooking the oats in the “banana milk” infuses the flavor throughout and smells delicious! I like to top the oatmeal with nuts and cacao nibs for crunch (and antioxidants) along with extra banana slices.

Peel the bananas and place in a blender with 2 cups milk. Blend until combined. Pour into a medium size saucepan and add the oats, cinnamon and salt.
