Sometimes on a cold morning, there is nothing better than a big bowl of hot oatmeal. It's possible to make good natural oatmeal in the microwave- don't cave and buy the flavored packets! Here is my method:
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup water
big spoonful peanut butter
Place a ripe banana in a bowl, mash it up well with a fork. Mix oatmeal and water in the bowl. Make sure your bowl is big enough, it will puff up in the microwave. Set the timer for 3 minutes, keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't boil over. Once the oatmeal is cooked, mix in a healthy splash of milk, a big spoonful of peanut butter, and sweeten with honey. Breakfast is served.
