bring milk to a boil and then add in quick cook oats

In a saucepan bring 2 cups milk (or water) to a boil. Then add 1 cup quick cook oats and stir. Continue cooking over medium-high heat until the oatmeal start to thicken. Meanwhile add the following:

sweeten with maple syrup and honey

You can sweeten your oatmeal any way you like, but we like to use healthy, natural ingredients. So we use 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup and 1 tablespoon honey. 

You can use one, both, or brown sugar if you prefer.

stir in cinnamon and bananas

Stir in 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 2 sliced bananas. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the oatmeal has thickened. Just about 3 minutes.
