Peanut Butter and Banana Oatmeal

Just like Elvis, I have always been a fan of peanut butter and banana sandwiches. It is such an ingenious combination, and it makes an easy transition into oatmeal. This is a stick-to-your-ribs breakfast that will keep you going until lunch.

1/2 cup quick 1- min cooking oats
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
a sprinkle of chili powder (slightly less than 1/8 tsp)
a sprinkle of salt
1 Tbsp peanut butter
boiling water (at least 1-2 cups)
1/8 tsp vanilla
1 medium mashed banana

Boil water on the stove. In a bowl, whisk together oats, sugar, cinnamon, chili powder, and salt. Add the peanut butter in the center, but do not stir.
When the water boils, add water to oats mixture a little at a time until you reach desired consistency. Stir until peanut butter melts, then add vanilla and mashed banana.
