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.

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