I saw this on a running/healthy eating blog, with a Side of Sneakers, a while ago and finally remembered to do the evening prep yesterday. My new phone camera isn’t that great. Sadly my real camera has died so there will be a few sub par pics for the next little while. This recipe is for pan-fried oatmeal. I don’t think I can stomach deep frying yet.
Based on this recipe
The night before
1-1 1/2 cups rolled oats
2 cups water
any flavoring of your choice (I used none)
The next morning
a bit of butter
one banana, sliced
The night before. Bring the water to a boil and add the oats. Simmer until the oats are cooked. Spread in a baking dish or tupperware container big enough that your oatmeal is about 2cm thick. Try to spread it evenly. When it has reached room temperature, cover and put in the fridge.
The next morning. Cut the oatmeal into your desired serving size. My ideal size was eight pieces. Slice the banana. Melt just enough butter to give a bit of flavor in a frying pan. Add the oatmeal and fry on medium until crispy and heated through. Remove from the pan and place on serving dish. Add the banana to the pan and fry quickly. Be careful, banana burns quickly. Top the oatmeal with fried banana and a little syrup if you need the sweetness. Serve.
