  • 1/2 cup Oats
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon Powder optional

  1. Mix oats with mashed banana. The mixture should hold together but at the same time a little soft and not too dry. If the mixture is too wet, then add a little more oats. If the mixture is dry, then add a little more mashed banana. Look at the video for consistency.
