Oats Banana Sheera

I am yet to recover from my bout of laziness, so cooking is minimal at home. Hubby dear is away for a week, so bread and noodles is featuring prominently at the dining table. Breakfast is nutella sandwich and with a cup of tea, you feel like a king. Add this low fat sheera and its a feast!

Starting BM 23 on a sweet note, under zero oil recipes. This is not a low calorie food, as you still have sugar in it. Check out the other participants here in the Blogging Marathon page.
