Banana Walnut Oatmeal

Banana Walnut Oatmeal is my go-to “home alone for breakfast on a weekend” recipe. My husband tolerates oatmeal if it appears suddenly, but he doesn’t seek it out; he’d rather have muffins. The kids won’t touch it. I have always liked it, even plain, but this simple recipe takes it up another notch from just warm and comforting to downright tasty. The addition of the maple syrup and the banana give it a balanced sweetness without adding any extra processed sugar. I make this recipe pretty much as written, although I don’t measure the nuts; I just use a small-ish handful, give them a chop and mix them in to the whole batch. If, like me, you are cooking this for just yourself, the second serving that this makes will reheat well the next day.
