Ingredients
  • ½ cup steel cut oats
  • 3 cup water
  • 1 banana, cut in half lengthwise and then cut half width-wise
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon whiskey
  • Chopped pecans, for garnish
Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan set over medium heat, bring water to a boil. When the water is boiling, add in the steel cut oats and stir. Bring the oats to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook for 20-25 minutes until tender.
  2. While the oatmeal is cooking, make the bananas. In a non-stick skillet set over medium-low heat, combine sugar and butter. Heat together until the butter is melted and the sugar is dissolved. Add in the banana pieces, tossing to coat in the butter-sugar mixture. When the bananas are coated and tender, turn off the heat and add in the whiskey. Turn the heat back on and cook for an additional minute. Set the bananas aside until the oats are finished.
  3. To plate: Pour half of the oats into a bowl and add two pieces of banana and some of the sauce. Garnish with chopped pecans. Do the same with the second half of the oats. Then dig in!
