Sticky Date or 'Banoffee' Oatmeal


There are a lot of oatmeal flavours that I eat on a regular basis (I'm looking at you, carrot cake oatmeal!) but sticky date has got to be the one I love the most. The dates are added in at the beginning of cooking so the heat softens them, resulting in a bowl of gooey, caramel-like deliciousness. And of course the addition of banana just makes everything ten times better. If there's one recipe I recommend you make, it's definitely this one!



Ingredients
Serves 1
  • 2/3 cup oats
  • 1 1/3 cup milk of choice
  • 3 Medjool dates
  • 1 ripe banana (optional but recommended) 

Method

Chop the dates into small pieces and put them into a small saucepan along with the oats and milk. Turn the heat up to the highest setting and bring the milk to a boil; once it's boiling reduce the heat to the lowest setting and let it simmer for about two minutes, stirring occasionally, until it has thickened up a bit.

Cut your banana in half (if using) and mash one half into a pulp, then mix it into the oatmeal and let it cook for another three or four minutes, stirring occasionally, until it is at your desired consistency. When it's ready pour it into a bowl, add your toppings and enjoy!
