So yummy!!!! Banana-Walnut Oatmeal

Hello,
A while back I had mentioned in one of my post that I had a immense craving for banana bread and that I had come across a recipe that I was hoping would kill my craving of wanting banana bread everyday.  Well I tried that recipe and I have to say it was fantastic!!!! So here it is!!  It is from weight watchers so I give them all the credit. 

Banana-Walnut Steel Cut Oatmeal : Again this was taken from weight watchers:  http://www.weightwatchers.com/

Level of Difficulty: Easy



Steel cut oats, also known as Irish oats, do take a while to cook but their slightly chewy texture is well-worth the extra time.
Ingredients
4 cup(s) water

1/4 tsp table salt, or to taste

1 cup(s) Hodgson Mill Steel cut oats, or other brand

2 medium banana(s), ripe, mashed

1 Tbsp packed brown sugar

2 tsp unsalted butter

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup(s) low-fat milk

8 tsp chopped walnuts

Instructions

Bring water and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan; stir in oats and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until oats are tender, about 25 to 30 minutes; remove from heat. Gently stir in bananas, sugar, butter and vanilla; stir in milk. Serve oatmeal topped with walnuts. Yields about 1 cup oatmeal and 2 teaspoons walnuts per serving.

Notes:
I actually doubled the recipe because I had put to much water.  I also added cinnamon!!!
