Day 172: Caramelized Banana Oatmeal

Yield: 1 person
Time (Start to Finish): 20 min

1 banana
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup steal cut oats
1-1 ½ cup water
¼ cup pecan pieces
2 Tbsp flax flour

1. In a pot on the stove, cook the oatmeal with the water according to the directions
2. Add the brown sugar (saving a little) pecans and flax
3. Preheat the broiler
4. Take the banana and slice
5. Put on a cookie sheet
6. Sprinkle brown sugar on each banana making sure not to mound it too high
7. Place under the broiler, and KEEPING AN EYE ON IT wait until it bubbles and begins to brown. This will happen fast so do not leave it alone
8. Take them and place them on the oatmeal and dig in!

Rating: 4.5 strawberries
Notes: I made this before hopping on a plane to NYC!! It was SO GOOD! The crunchy bananas added a whole new element that I think is fantastic, and the flax is just always good for you. You can add these bananas to anything, dessert, ice cream, whatever. They are killer, so you gotta try it. It gets that sugar need out of your system right away in the morning.
