Cinnamon + Banana Oatmeal

The weatherman just mentioned that a year ago at this time, we had snow! I'm definitely not ready for that kind of weather yet. The only thing that makes me want to get out of a warm and cozy bed is the thought of coffee and a hot breakfast! You probably have all the ingredients for this cinnamon and banana oatmeal in your kitchen right now. Hope you all have a fabulous week!

Cinnamon and Banana Oatmeal
Yield: 1 Large Serving

1 C. Water
1/8 tsp. Salt
1/2 C. Old-Fashioned Oats
1/2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1 Banana, thinly sliced
1 Tbsp. Sliced Almonds (optional)

Bring water and salt to a boil in a small saucepan. Add oats and keep pan over medium heat; stir occasionally (approximately 5 minutes or until the mixture reaches the desired consistency). Remove the pan from heat and stir in cinnamon and banana slices. Pour oatmeal into a bowl and garnish with almonds and a few more slices of banana.
