2 tablespoons shredded coconut, toasted

In 1 1/2-quart saucepan, heat water to boiling. Stir in oats, gingerroot and salt. Reduce heat; simmer gently uncovered 25 to 30 minutes, without stirring, until oats are tender yet slightly chewy; stir in banana. Divide oatmeal evenly among 4 bowls.

To speed cooking time, substitute 1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats for steel-cut oats, cooking as directed on oats package.
