Caramelized Banana Oatmeal! Creamy oatmeal with bananas in a maple syrup/coconut oil glaze. No refined sugar!


INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup rolled Quaker oats
  • 3 bananas, sliced into rounds
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup real maple syrup
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • dash of vanilla
  • sea salt, chocolate chips, and other desired toppings

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Cook the oatmeal according to package directions. For extra awesome creamy oatmeal, cook it in milk!
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla, and let it bubble around for a little bit to get incorporated. It should be lightly foamy and bubbly.
  3. Add bananas and simmer for a few minutes on each side until soft and plump.
  4. Remove from heat. Stir half of bananas into oatmeal, and reserve the other half for topping. Add other desired toppings, and mwah! Delicious.

NOTES
  • I found that I did not need all the cinnamon caramely sauce in the pan for serving with my oatmeal, but it was the right amount for simmering with the bananas.
