Get ready for the most decadent, most delicious and cozy bowl of oats you've ever tasted! This caramelized banana oatmeal is made with sweet and gooey caramelized bananas served over creamy oatmeal. Serve with crunchy pecans and a touch of cinnamon for an amazing vegan breakfast.
Melt the butter over medium-low heat in a medium nonstick skillet.
Arrange the banana slices in a single layer in the skillet. Cook until they begin to soften up and brown on the bottoms, about 3-4 minutes.
Gently flip the slices and cook on the opposite side until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes more.
Remove the pan from heat and transfer the banana slices to a plate.
Place the milk and salt into a small saucepan and set it over medium heat. Bring it to a simmer.
Stir in the oats and cook, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes, until most of the milk is absorbed. You can add more milk during cooking if needed.
Remove the pot from heat and stir in the maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla.
Transfer the oatmeal to a bowl and top with pecans and bananas. Serve.
