Creamy Banana Oatmeal

Submitted by: ASHESTOASHES

Introduction

This filling, balanced breakfast is a great way to start off your day. The cottage cheese adds an extra creaminess and more protein and the banana contributes natural sweeteness. Feel free to add extra fun toppings, the options are endless. This filling, balanced breakfast is a great way to start off your day.

Ingredients

    1/2 C. Rolled oats (or oat bran), uncooked
    1 C. Water
    1 Small banana, mashed
    1/2 C. Cottage cheese, 2%
    1 tsp. Honey
    1 tsp. Cinnamon, to taste



Directions

On the stove, heat oats and water. Add a dash of salt to taste, if desired. While oats are cooking, mash small banana and set aside. When oats start thickening (approx. 5 minutes. If using oat bran, less time is required), add mashed banana and stir in vigorously (I like to use a whisk). Keep stirring until oats are completely cooked to your preference. Remove from heat and add honey, cinnamon, and cottage cheese. Pour into a bowl and serve with extra cinnamon on top, if desired. I also like to serve with a splash of skim milk.

Other Topping Ideas:
Nuts
Dried Fruit
Granola (see my Honey Nut Granola Recipe)
Brown Sugar
Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
Skim or Soy milk
Unsweetened Cocoa
Chocolate Chips
Fresh berries

  • I already make something really similar to this except I use 1/2 cup 1%milk to replace the water, no honey, I think the banana adds plenty of sweetener and a dash of nutmeg with the cinnamon. I don't always have cottage cheese but it adds a lot of protein when you have it. - 3/11/09
