2-3 tablespoons sugar
2 cups milk or water
1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
1 cup old fashioned oats
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons golden raisins
1-2 bananas, peeled and sliced
1 tablespoon honey
Pour the water or milk in a saucepan and cook over medium heat.
Stir in the oats and cook for 10 minutes or until it is creamy.
Add the honey, vanilla extract and raisins.
Cook for another minute or two to allow the flavors to meld together.
Pour the oatmeal into 3 or 4 ramekins.
Top with banana slices and sprinkle with sugar.
I like to use a kitchen torch to caramelize the bananas, because it gives me more control. However, you could simply broil them in the oven, but watch them carefully so they don’t burn.
