1 cup reduced-fat milk
½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 teaspoon pure maple syrup or honey
3 slices banana, one of them halved
Bring milk and oats to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer; cook, stirring often, until thick, about 5 minutes. Stir in syrup (or honey). Transfer to a bowl.
Decorate the oatmeal to resemble a monkey face using banana slices and blueberries.
People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
