The secret ingredient in this recipe is Sejoyia Salted Caramel Coco Roons, which really makes boring oatmeal, well…not boring. And actually so tasty, you might never eat your oatmeal any other way again. People have said that they are hard to find, but I can find at least one flavor at Whole Foods, and when in doubt, you can definitely find them on Amazon. They come in a variety of different flavors, but my favorite has got to be the Salted Caramel. They are basically chewy, bite sized cookie snacks, and I always keep a pouch in my purse so that I never end up stranger somewhere, HANGRY. And they also make the perfect oatmeal topping. You heard it here first.
The other thing I’d like to talk about is caramelizing bananas. Some of these other food bloggers seem to make the perfect caramelized bananas, with beautiful char marks on each side. Up until now, mine came out soggy and mushy. Ain’t got no time for that. So I researched and discovered the secret (or at least indulge me, and pretend I did). The secret is to make sure your pan is coated evenly with oil, and toss the banana coins very lightly in coconut sugar (or brown sugar). If you do that, I can practically guarantee that your bananas will have that perfect char, too!
So let’s get right to it, shall we?
