The perfect quick breakfast recipe with a cup of hot tea!Allergies tend to hit our family hard this time of year into the spring and summer. And then again in the fall. Fun times! This Banana Bread Oatmeal and a cup of hot tea is one of my favorites for when you’re feeling a little “junky.”I always remember having oatmeal as a staple in my house growing up, it was like comfort food for me. And I always liked super lemony tea, especially when you can barely taste anything else because of congestion. It’s amazing to me how much the sense of smell plays into how well you can taste! There have been a few occasions when I’ve given a warm cup to the boys when they weren’t feeling well. They call it their “medicine,” haha! Adorbs.Even when I’m feeling particularly icky, I can always go for a bowl of hot oatmeal. Adjust the sweetness to your liking as well with additional banana slices or an extra drizzle of maple syrup.Are quick cooking oats and old fashioned oats the same thing?Not in recipes! Quick cooking oats are pressed into much thinner flakes than old fashioned oats. They cook much quicker (ha) and they generally have a more creamy taste to the nuttier old fashioned oats flavor.Banana bread oatmeal to go:This is the perfect recipe to take with you on the way to work! It only takes 5 or so minutes to cook this on the stove, put the hot oatmeal in an insulated thermos, and you’re out the door!If you liked this Stove Top Banana Bread Oatmeal recipe, leave a rating and a comment below!
