After being snowed in for a week (no exaggeration) I was hankering for a baked good- specifically a banana nut muffin, except I can't bake! So I looked around my kitchen and decided to do something with the lonely overripe banana sitting on my counter. This oatmeal tastes like a muffin to me, but leaves you feeling full and satisfied... and no crumbs! —DCfoodgrl

In This Recipe
Add milk to a pot and just before it boils, add cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and vanilla.
Once the milk begins to boil, toss in the oats and cook on medium heat for about 5-6 minutes or until the oatmeal looks ready.
Turn off heat and add very thin slices of the banana, brown sugar and the butter. Stir to incorporate.
Pour oatmeal in a bowl and sprinkle with a handful of walnuts and drizzle with honey.
