Caramelized Banana Oatmeal | Pink Wings
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


Directions:

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.

  5. I'm a huge breakfast fan too, but my go-to is cereal. So lame, I know. But I literally CRAVE honey nut cheerios all day. If I was single, I think I would eat it for dinner at least 3 nights a week :)

  7. I love this recipe! I'm a big lover of oatmeal with a variety of toppings. Have you ever tried it refrigerated? It might sound weird, but it ends up being a nice pudding texture, it's delicious :)

    1. I don't know if this is the best for overly ripe bananas because they might fall apart while caramelizing them. Banana breads are really good for those~ <3

  24. Oatmeal is my all time favorite breakfast. . .there are so many ways you can dress it up. I love your idea of topping it with caramelized bananas. So simple but yet an easy way to add that bit of indulgence to a tried and true favorite. Pinned for future making.
