This is my old standby breakfast recipe.  I really love oatmeal, so I always look forward to breakfast when I know it’s on the menu!  You can eat this as-is, or add some frozen berries, dried fruit, nuts, etc.

1/3 cup rolled oats

1/3 cup water

1/3 cup skimmed milk

1 tbsp flax seeds

1 medium banana, sliced

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

Combine all ingredients in a small pot and cook over medium heat until the mixture just starts to bubble.  Reduce heat and cook for about five minutes, stirring frequently.
