Servings: 2 people
In a small pot, bring water to a boil with a pinch of salt.
Stir in rolled oats. Lower heat to a low simmer. Stir occasionally for about 10 minutes, until the oatmeal has thickened.
During the last few minutes of cooking, stir in banana, peanut butter, and maple syrup. If you like a milder amount of peanut flavor, stir in 1 Tablespoon. If you like a more robust peanut flavor, use 2 Tablespoons of peanut butter.For prettier oatmeal, set aside a few slices of banana to use as garnish at the end. Once it has reached your desired level of thickness, taste & add more salt or maple syrup, if desired. Remove the oatmeal from the stove & put it into two bowls. Add a splash of non-dairy milk onto each one (optional). If you have any reserved banana slices, use them as garnish on each bowl.
It's easy to personalize this oatmeal to suit your tastes.
Store leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator. It will keep for 3 to 5 days. When you're ready to reheat, add a splash of water or non-dairy milk. Stir & reheat in the microwave.
