{Note: I updated the photos on 1/27/14. Recipe is still the same}

i’m not big on breakfast food, I’ve been eating a small bowl of cold cereal every morning since I was a baby but my family loves it. So this morning Andreas hands me a box of 5 minute old fashion oats. Stops and stares into my eyes with this huge smile on his face. Okay, okay. I get the hint.

he’s a man who has to have protein with almost every meal (yes! It’s exhausting), so I thought why not mix in some eggs into the oatmeal. To my surprise, the whites made it fluffy and the whole eggs made it velvety. Usually oatmeal tightens up rather quickly, not this one.. It’s crazy creamy like a porridge. Fluffy and so tasty with just enough sweetness from the brown sugar and bananas.

andreas said, “Wow!” this is the best oatmeal I ever had, it tastes like rice pudding. I guess his huge smile worked. Even I traded in my cold cereal for a bowl of this warm, satisfying and yummy oatmeal this morning.
