Ingredients

  • 2 cups old fashioned gluten free oats
  • 3 ¼ cups water
  • 1 over-ripe banana smashed
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter organic and natural preferred - peanuts should be the only ingredient....and maybe salt

  • 1-2 teaspoon(s) cinnamon depending on how much you like your cinnamon...I LOVE it so I add even more!

Toppings

Instructions

  • Add water to pot and whisk in the smashed banana until mostly incorporated.
