Coffee and Banana Oats

One of my favorite on-the-go breakfast combinations is a skim latte and banana. I tried to recreate the flavor here in a new oatmeal variation. You don’t need to brew a fresh pot of coffee if you have a little leftover from the day before. This was a great bowl, complete with a caffeine kick!

1/2 c. oats
1/2 c. coffee
1/2 c. skim milk
1/2 banana, sliced
1/2 t vanilla
Dash of cinnamon
Dash of cocoa powder

Cook oats, coffee, and milk in a saucepan on medium heat, mixing in banana, until it reaches the desired consistency. Remove from heat, add vanilla, and garnish with cinnamon and cocoa. powder.
