1 banana, mashed
1/2 cup lowfat cottage cheese
1/4 cup quick cook oats (may work with other oatmeal too)
1/2 T cinnamon (or more)
1 T maple syrup
(note: nutritional info uses a sugar free variety that I actually like)
Can be eaten plain, warmed up like microwaveable oatmeal, or on a stove kinda like a pancake, although it doesn't stick together well. Great way to heat it tho and then just scoop back into a bowl.

Add oatmeal, cottage cheese, and enough cinnamon to kill a small mammal
Drizzle with syrup or other flavorings of your choice
Enjoy as is!
So here's where the idea, and modification came from. I was told this idea would work to make pancakes, it really didn't. Consitency was all wrong, but warmed up on the stove it was a delicious mush of oatmealy goodness. Then I mixed all this up with the intent of doing it in the microwave for my breakfast. I ate half the thing as the batter because it was so good before I finally popped it into the microwave. It was better mixed up and cold, the combination was great just as so now I eat it like this!
Serving Size: Makes serving, use 1/2 cup oats for a bigger breakfast full of more whole grains
