Bananas Foster Oatmeal

by Heather of Kitchen Concoctions:

Prep Time: 8-10 minutes Cook Time: 12-15 minutes Serves 1-2

3/4 cup old fashioned oats

Dash Salt

1 cup skim milk

1 cup water

¼ teaspoon vanilla

½ tablespoon butter

1 ripe banana, peeled and sliced

2 tablespoon brown sugar

¼ teaspoon rum extract

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Combine oats, milk, water, and vanilla and salt in a nonstick pot on the stove.

Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer.

Cook for 12 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until very thick and creamy.

Meanwhile, heat a small sauté pan over medium heat. Add butter and melt. Add sliced bananas to melted butter and cook for 1-2 minutes. Stir in brown sugar, cinnamon, and rum extract. Allow to cook for 1-2 minutes longer, until bananas are slightly soft and caramel sauce has formed.

Pour bananas and sauce over prepared oatmeal. Serve topped with a dash of cinnamon, if desired.
