Today is Bananas B-A-N-A-N-A-S

(Anybody see that Office episode? Today is bananas, b-a-n-a-n-a-s…)

This morning called for stovetop oats even though it was a super-early one.

I tried toasting some of the wheat germ, coconut, and walnuts with the oatmeal before adding the liquid. I’d like to say it intensified the flavor, but it might possibly have been attributed to my imagination.


Then I stirred in some banana. I love slicing the banana as thin as I can then beating the oats until the banana completely dissolves. I don’t like banana chunks in my oats.

I also had cottage cheese, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and flax in the mix.

Oh creamy goodness!

A little coconut on top and a spoonful of peanut butter to get me through the day!

Today is a huge long day at work with two very important meetings around lunch, so I won’t be able to post 😦 I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday and I’ll see you all at dinner!

Happy Wednesday!

    Love the oatmeal – I mash my banana into one big mush before adding it to my oatmeal – it blends right in very easily.

    Good luck with all your meetings!

    i put bananas in my oats, nothing fancy just sliced and then whatever amount of the banana isn’t in my oats gets slathered with pb 🙂 yum

    Adding PB in oats is one of my favorites 🙂

    Have a great day!

    I need to get on the “bananas in my oats” train. I’m just fearful of chunks – but now I know to slice them really thin!

    That big scoop of PB makes me jealous — I came downstairs to make oats this morning and discovered that the jar of PB was already empty and in the recycling bin. Nooooooooo! 😦

    And that’s also how I like my banana in my oatmeal. it makes it SO creamy!!!! It basically melts into the oats..yum..

    Ha! I’m the same with the small slices when I add banana to my oats, so much better;)
