  • For the Oatmeal
  • 3 1/4 cups water
  • 1/ teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • For the Bananas Foster
  • 4 ripe bananas peeled and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • Chocolate chips for topping optional


  • For the Oatmeal
  • 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.
