    I had some dried banana & wasn't sure what to do with it so thought I'd give it a go in my porridge

      This is a good way to spice up your oatmeal. I used walnuts instead of dates, since I didn't have any. I love dried bananas, they are so flavorful. The only slight negative is that the flavor does get a little lost in this. But still -- a great breakfast.

      Oh Mandy, what a terrific creation! Cutting the bananas is a little difficult but worth it. I omitted the vanilla syrup but used light vanilla soymilk instead of milk. My husband gave me an odd look when he saw me with a martini glass at 7 a.m. until I told him this oatmeal was made for the Beverage Tag Game.
