Old-Fashioned Oats with Bananas

Standard

blog50

Fortunately, we have always loved old-fashioned oatmeal. Whole oat grains are rolled leaving the oat bran and germ intact — very healthy. The bran is a great source of natural fiber, and the germ is rich in minerals and nutrients. All of this is lost in quick-cooking and instant varieties. Plus, you can always boost the nutritional value any time you add fresh fruit to the mix. Just add the fruit of your choice along with the oats and allow them to steep and cook down until soft. A great, and delicious, way to start the day!
