I am always in search of yummy and filling breakfast ideas. One of my favorites is oatmeal sprinkled with cinnamon. I add a sliced banana on top after it’s cooked.  When I saw this recipe on Pop Sugar last week , I decided I would try if for breakfast. After all, it says it tastes like cookies.  I mashed up the bananas, added the peanut butter, stirred in the oatmeal, sprinkled it with cinnamon and into the microwave it went. Went I removed it, it didn’t look anything like the picture.  Then again, my meals rarely look like the photo included with the recipe. I added a little milk, stirred it up and gave it a try. The texture was thicker than I expected, but the flavor was pretty good.  I like peanut butter, but  I think next time I would try some other kind of butter or maybe a teaspoon of honey. It was filling and did hold me over until lunch time.   If you try this recipe, comment here and let me know if you think it tasted like cookies, and if it was satisfying.  Do you have a favorite go-to breakfast that keeps you satisfied all morning?
