Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.
