Steel Cut Oats and Caramelized Bananas

img

This is, by far, the best steel cut oats recipe I have ever eaten. It takes more time and energy than overnight oats, but the result of boiling the oats in almond milk is well worth it. Caramelized bananas are one potential topping, but you could also choose fresh fruit, dried fruit, or even tropical fruit, like passion fruit, and coconut milk. You can also serve the caramelized bananas atop toast and peanut butter.

How about making one of these energizing juices while your steel cut oats cook and bananas cool?
