This easy recipe for Bananas Foster Oatmeal takes a classic dessert to another whole level of breakfast deliciousness. The caramelized bananas give a delicious flavor to the oatmeal and add the perfect sweetness to your breakfast!
In a medium saucepan add water and salt and old fashioned oats. Bring to a boil while stirring occasionally. The oats will be cooked in 5-7 minutes until the water is absorbed. Keep cooking until the oats come to your desired consistency. If you feel the oats haven't cooked properly, add a bit more of water (about 1/4 cup) and cook further until the oats reach the desired consistency. Add the cinnamon powder and mix. Set aside.
For the Bananas Foster
In a frying pan, melt the butter on medium high heat and then add the brown sugar. Stir for a few minutes until the brown sugar melts and combines into a saucy consistency with the butter (about 2-3 minutes). Add the bananas and cook for an addition 2-3 minutes until the bananas have softened.
Divide the oatmeal into bowls, and top with the bananas foster and chocolate chips (if using). Serve immediately.
