I made a resolution to eat healthier in 2012, but I'm realistic enough to know that if I deny myself of the things I love, I'm sure to quit as soon as I begin. All things are in moderation with this healthy breakfast. Good-for-you oatmeal meets creamy, dreamy Nutella and then I topped it off with a few chopped walnuts and some sliced bananas. It's a perfect way to start the day!

Ingredients

1 1/2 c
skim milk
1/4 tsp
kosher salt
1 c
oats, uncooked
1 Tbsp
nutella
1
banana, medium (6-7 inches)
2 Tbsp
brown sugar, firmly packed
2 Tbsp
walnuts, chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium saucepan, heat milk and salt over medium heat just until it comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low and stir in the oatmeal.

Cook, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes, until most of the milk is absorbed. (If you use quick-coating oatmeal instead, it will take about 1 minute to cook.)
3
Remove from the heat and stir in the Nutella.

Spoon the oatmeal into bowls and top with sliced bananas, walnuts and brown sugar.
