Whiskied Jungle Oats

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Engrossed

From: “The Africa Kitchen by Josie Stow and Jan Baldwin”. I changed this to use vanilla extract because otherwise you would have to make your own vanilla brown sugar. This also says in Africa they top the oatmeal with Amarula fruit cream liqueur instead of the whisky and vanilla brown sugar.

What a fabulous way to start the day...a shot of good whiskey, health oats and i added the bananas too.
