Ingredients

For the oats:

  1. 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats

  2. 2 cups liquid

  3. 1 mashed banana

  4. Sweeter of choice

  5. dash of salt, cinnamon and other spices of choice

  6. splash of vanilla extract

  7. Fresh fruit to top


For the caramel sauce (vegan; substitute with heavy cream for dairy alternative):

  1. 1 can full fat coconut cream

  2. 2/3 cup coconut sugar

  3. 1 tsp vanilla extract

  4. dash of salt


For the whipped cream (vegan; substitute with heavy / whipping cream for dairy alternative):

  1. 1 can full fat coconut milk; refrigerated (cream on top required only)

  2. 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar

  3. 1 tsp vanilla extract


Preparation

To prep the oats:

  1. On stovetop, in a small-medium pot, on medium heat, add oats and liquid and cook for a few mins until bubbly.

  2. Add mashed banana, sweetener, vanilla extract, salt and spices and cook for 2 mins.

  3. Remove from heat. Set aside in a bowl.


To prep the caramel:

  1. On stovetop, in a small-medium pot, on medium heat, add full fat cream and sugar. Stir continuously until incorporated, for a couple of mins.

  2. Lower heat, add vanilla extract and salt (and any spices of choice if using) and let thicken before removing from heat (about 5-7 mins).


To prep the cream:

  1. Open your can of refrigerated coconut milk. To a chilled bowl, add the coconut cream that's on top. Beat with mixer on high until starts to soften and look creamy.

  2. Add the vanilla extract and continue bating.

  3. Add the confectioner's sugar, a few tbsp at a time, preferably using a sieve to eliminate hard bits, while beating continuously. You might not need to use all the sugar, depending on the consistency you're after.

  4. Once desired consistency achieved, turn mixer off.

  5. Make sure to keep the cream chilled in an air right container. Will last a few days in the fridge.


Serve the oats in a bowl, topped with the caramel sauce, whipped cream and fresh fruit of choice!
