Prep Time: 8-10 minutes Cook Time: 12-15 minutes Serves 1-2
3/4 cup old fashioned oats
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.
