Warm up to a hearty and delicious bowl of hot Crock-Pot Banana Bread Oatmeal. The perfect breakfast for a cold morning!
Crock-Pot Banana Bread Oatmeal
Colder weather makes me want to eat warm food for breakfast. Something about waking up and putting your bare foot on that cold floor and walking into the kitchen and starting the Keurig for that first cup of coffee and fixing a bowl of hot breakfast food from the crock-pot.
I love oatmeal. It is my all time favorite hot breakfast food. I like it plain with a little brown sugar and some milk in it, apple pieces and some cinnamon, and even with just maple syrup in it.
I decided it was time to try a few recipes for my favorite breakfast food in the crock-pot. Something that I could start before bed, and eat when I got up.
This is a great recipe to use up those bananas that are a little too ripe to eat, but you hate to throw them out. You know the ones with the brown spots that kids say are too ripe to eat.
Mix all the ingredients in the crock-pot, turn it on and wait for the oatmeal to be done.
I topped mine with some chopped nuts and a few slices of fresh bananas. Some fresh coconut, a few chocolate chips or even some added fresh blueberries would make a great added topping too!
