Breakfast oatmeal inspired by Bananas Foster
- 1⁄2 cup rolled oats
- 1⁄4 teaspoon rum extract
- 1 cup water
- 1 banana
- 1 pinch salt (optional)
- Splenda sugar substitute (optional)
- sugar (optional)
- Cook oatmeal with water, salt & rum extract according to package directions.
- Slice banana lengthwise and again in half. You will have four slices. Brown the banana slices using nonstick spray in a nonstick pan.
- Sweeten oatmeal to taste. Top with sauteed bananas.
I didn't have rum extract, so I had to leave that out. Even without it, it was delicious! I used Easy Caramelized Bananas for the banana part. They go so well with the oatmeal - what a treat!
My whole family loved this recipe. My husband loved the sauteed bananas, but I had to mash them up to "hide" them from my son, cause he is finicky. I had some left over caramel from something else, and drizzled a little on top and it was the perfect accent. I love that (aside from the caramel addition) this is a good, healthy breakfast. Thanks for the variation in something we eat several times a week!
Was tasty, didn't care much for the texture of the grilled banana, added a little raw sugar and cinnamon.
