Banana Oatmeal



It's 3'oclock and I'm hungry! So... I decided to whip up some oatmeal with vanilla and banana for flavor. Even though I made this as a snack it can of course be used for the meal of the day you usually find it, breakfast.  
I like using Irish McCann's Steel Cut Oats. They are thick and have excellent fiber!
