Bananas Foster Oatmeal
We love eating oatmeal in our house. I usually just make plain oatmeal then let the kids add fruit or nut-free granola. With this recipe I married my two of my favorites – bananas foster and oatmeal. The whole family just gobbled this recipe up! What’s not to love about dessert and breakfast in the same bowl!
Don’t worry I didn’t add the rum that is usually in bananas foster recipe. (I may make a grown up version next time for mom and dad though). I also didn’t add a pound of sugar to make a caramel sauce. I added just enough sugar to get a nice caramelization on the bananas then topped the oatmeal with these little yummy sweet banana chunks.
This recipe would be a nice treat to switch up breakfast on any weekday or weekend.
