Maple Banana Nut Oatmeal recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Creamy, chewy oats, bananas and pecans are topped with a generous drizzle of maple syrup to make this a warm and filling winter breakfast. Less than 10 minutes effort was required to put this hot breakfast on the table.

I love making oatmeal for breakfast. The fillings and toppings are endless and the different variations keep it interesting. My youngest two boys are always happiest with a bowl of oatmeal first thing in the morning. All three of my boys gave this oatmeal two thumbs up.

    I make oatmeal in my rice cooker, it has a timer and will do the porridge cycle and finish just in time for us to wake up. I love to add flavorings and these would be perfect!
