Banana Pecan Oatmeal
Start your day with a wholesome bowl of oatmeat that tastes like banana bread with toasted pecans.
3 cups milk
3 tablespoons brown sugar, firmly packed
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups old fashioned oats
2 medium-size ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
1/4 cup coarsely chopped toasted pecans*
- In medium saucepan, bring milk, brown sugar, spices and salt to a gentle boil (watch carefully); stir in oats. Return to a boil; reduce heat to medium. Cook 1 minute for quick oats, 5 minutes for old fashioned oats, or until most of liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally.
- Remove oatmeal from heat. Stir in mashed bananas and pecans.
Makes 6 servings.
*To toast pecans, spread evenly in shallow, ungreased baking pan. Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) 5 to 7 minutes or until light golden brown.
