Breakfast food is my favorite, so I eat it at anytime of day.
When the only mouth to feed is my own, I put aside any elaborate meal plans and just go for simple, quick recipes that leave minimal dishes to clean. This oatmeal topped with a sprinkling of caramelized almond bits and a side of Greek yogurt was perfect.
And today is the last day to enter the giveaway.
Caramelized Banana Oatmeal
Makes 2 servings
- 1 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1 cup milk
- pinch cinnamon
- pinch nutmeg
- pinch salt
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar, divided
- 1 firm banana, sliced
- 1 Tbsp butter
- chopped nuts
Heat the butter in a pan over medium. Once melted, add 1Tbsp brown sugar and banana slices. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side until caramelized. Remove pan from heat and set aside while making the oatmeal.
In a small saucepan, combine milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and remaining 1 Tbsp brown sugar. Bring to a soft boil, then add oats. Bring back to a boil, then reduce heat to med-low. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the oats have soaked up almost all of the liquid.
Scoop oatmeal into 2 bowls and top with the bananas. Sprinkle with chopped nuts and enjoy.
