Morning Oats

Happy Monday!

Since the husband and I had a crazy weekend, we decided to take the day off today. It's nice to catch up on some sleep sometimes! I promise to post a recap of the festivities, but I still have to upload some pictures before that happens.

One of the things I love about the mornings is banana oatmeal. I've been eating this concoction for probably a little over a year. I don't know what took me so long to try it!

Usually, I mash a banana in a bowl, leaving some chunks in it. This time, I decided to whip the banana to a creamy consistency before adding the oats and milk. It looked like this.

When the oatmeal was done cooking in the microwave (don't judge!), I added some cinnamon and set the table.

If you notice, I had my breakfast at my blogspot.
I cannot tell you how much I love bananas in my oatmeal! This was my first time using the whipped bananas, and it made the oats creamier. I found that I prefer chunks of mashed banana in my oatmeal-there's something about the texture that I really enjoy.
So that's it, folks! I'm off to enjoy the day with the hubby.
Question of the Day:
What's your favorite oatmeal add-in or topping? If you don't eat oatmeal, what's your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?
Until next time!

I've never whipped my bananas for my oats before, but it looks good! I usually just mash it with a fork after it heats up. I put pumpkin butter in my oatmeal this morning - very yummy!

I would have to say bananas are a necessity in my oats! They make it so much more creamier. I usually whip half of one into my oats towards the end of cooking (I use the stove). Also, I always need my spoonful of PB!
