Cinnamon Banana Bread Oatmeal

So, I’m going to Bethlehem’s VegFest tomorrow, and boy am I pumped! There’s going to be a lot of vegan goodness there, but I’m especially excited for Vegan Treats and The Cinnamon Snail (Vegan Treats because I love them dearly, The Cinnamon Snail because I hear good things). But hey, with a name like Cinnamon Snail, you’d think they’d have at least one thing with cinnamon on their menu, right??

Cinnamon Banana Bread Oatmeal (2)Because I have a confession… I am a cinnamon FREAK 🙂 LOVE cinnamon. But of all the things I douse with it, my favorite would have to be oatmeal ❤

Cinnamon Banana Bread OatmealAnd bananas and cinnamon are a glorious pairing. You like bananas, don’t you? Sure you do. Or you probably wouldn’t be reading this right now. Yep, I knew it. I’m sure you’re gonna love this 😉

Cinnamon Banana Bread Oatmeal (5)Topping this oatmeal with pecans also gives it some nice crunch, not to mention it tastes awesome with the other ingredients. They’re optional, of course, but totally worth it. They’re the perfect topping for this quick and yumlicious breakfast!

Yeah, so I’ll have to do some menu-surfing online for the Cinnamon Snail. Even if there’s no actual cinnamon, tomorrow’s still gonna be a blast!
