Banana Cranberry Oatmeal

Here is the recipe for what has become Sean and I’s favorite version of oatmeal. This recipe makes 2 servings. The spice measurements are not exact and feel free to add your own favorite spices or your own ratios.

Mix together in the pot before putting onto the heat:

1c oats

1tsp cinnamon, 1/4tsp cardamom, 1/4 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, a pinch of chili pepper

1 ripe banana (has brown spots) mashed with a fork

2 handfuls of cranberries,~1/2c, (fresh or frozen) with the large ones cut in half

1 1/2 c water

1/2 milk

Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until mixture is boiling while stirring. Turn off heat leaving pot on element and cover with lid. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving.

Serve with a drizzle of maple syrup and a bit of milk.
