  1. Combine milk, water and salt in a medium saucepan; heat until almost boiling. Add oats and cook, stirring, until creamy, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in mashed banana and maple syrup. Divide between 2 bowls, sprinkle with walnuts and serve.

banana, oatmeal, walnut cookie Need more info to finalize the recipe. Pros: sounds delish Cons: the recipe doesn't tell what to do, ie, to bake for how many minutes and size of cookie.
