Bananas Foster Oatmeal


  • ½ cup steel-cut oats
  • 1½ cup + ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 medium bananas, sliced and divided
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of cinnamon

♥for the banana-walnut topping:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup rough chopped walnuts
  • remaining sliced bananas


  1. Combine milk, water, ⅓ of the sliced bananas, salt, cinnamon and oats in a small pot.
  2. Bring to a boil with constant stirring to prevent it from sticking in the bottom of the pot and burning.
  3. Simmer for 20-30 minutes, while stirring constantly.
  4. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup milk and turn heat up to med-high until oatmeal is bubbling again.
  5. Turn off heat and set aside.
  6. Combine butter and brown sugar in a small pan over medium heat, stirring until butter and sugar are melted.
  7. Add remaining banana slices to caramelize.
  8. Add walnuts between banana slices.
  9. Once they start to brown and caramelize, flip the bananas over and cook until both sides are caramelized.
  10. Divide oatmeal into two bowls and top with the caramelized bananas.
