Strawberries are still in season, here in Northern California. I like to buy them in 2-5 pound containers so I can get a better value. The only problem is that Bud and I are the only two who eat strawberries, so we sometimes run out of ways to eat them before we get tired of them.
I have put fresh strawberries on my cold cereal before, but I wanted to find out how strawberries and oatmeal would go together. This recipe is basically cooked banana oatmeal with fresh strawberries. Next time, I would like to try it with roasted strawberries, for a more jammy taste.
Strawberry Banana Oatmeal
1/2 whole milk
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 cup of sliced strawberries
Bring milk and water to a boil.
Add oatmeal, banana, vanilla extract, cinnamon and salt.
Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture reaches desired consistency (about 5 minutes).
Top with strawberries.
