Banana & Flax Oatmeal

Submitted by: POOHSHUNNY

Introduction

One of my goals is to eat a nutritious, low-calorie, filling breakfast every morning. This is my favorite way to have oatmeal and it sure is good for the old cholesterol counts. I use old-fashioned oats as they can be microwaved and just seem better tasting to me. Quick oats or steel cut oats also work for this recipe. I like to add ground flax for the health properties it provides (promotes healthy skin and digestion). Can use one individual packets of Sugar in the Raw or Splenda. Warm & satisfying on a cold winter morning! One of my goals is to eat a nutritious, low-calorie, filling breakfast every morning.
