Favorite Ingredients Friday (Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Porridge)

Good Friday to you all! It's time for another Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Before we get started, I'd like to give another shout out for Tamy at 3 Sides of Crazy! She is hosting a Bread Round-Up on October 15. I'll be joining in. I hope you can too! Go visit her blog for details and help her spread the word!

Upcoming Themed Schedule
October 10-Sauce Edition II
October 24-Italian Edition II
November 7-Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style!
November 21-Soup Edition II

The recipe I'm posting is another one that I found on the Allrecipes.com.  With cold weather coming on, I think you'll love this porridge recipe!

Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Porridge

Ingredients:

2 cups boiling water
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 banana, mashed
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chip

Directions:

In a saucepan, combine water, oats and salt. Simmer 5 minutes uncovered, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand 3 minutes. Stir in brown sugar, banana and chocolate chips.

Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe!

Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.

I always wondered what Porridge was. :)

Apparently I can no longer see Mr. Linky at work. My post is up. I'll link when I get home tonight.

Sera's not a big oatmeal fan, but I bet she'd change her mind with this recipe.

This sounds so perfect for this morning - it's only 27 degrees here!

Kathryn I was a week ahead of myself (don't ask me how) sorry!
