·      1 Cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Old Fashion Rolled Oats
·      2 Cups of water 
·       A pinch of salt

Add 1 cinnamon stick to 2 cups of water

a pinch of salt

 and bring to a boil.

  Add 1 cup of
    Gluten-Free Old Fashion Rolled Oats.


             Reduce heat and simmer,
       cook for 3-4 minutes.

            Then remove pot from the heat,
cover and let stand for 3-4 minutes to let
the oats  absorb all the water.

·       While the Oatmeal sets up ….

In a saute pan  …

Roast the walnuts.

Heat the walnuts 1-2 minutes or until 

they smell toasted.

Then remove the walnuts, 

place them in a small bowl and set aside.

Back to the saute pan…

add Earth Balance butter spread.

                     Once the butter spread has melted …
             Add the brown sugar,


      the honey.

Stir all ingredients together …

until it forms a syrup consistency.

The syrup is done when you take a spoon or spatula 

and scrape the pan …  it is thick  & the syrup doesn’t run.

Chop the banana.

Add the banana to the syrup…


Place the bananas face down …
add the cinnamon…

      a couple sprinkles should do….

 stir the bananas so they are
    evenly coated with the syrup..

   Add the walnuts & stir until all is combined.
  The walnuts will soak up the syrup …

The warmed, spiced
 banana & walnut topping is done…

remove cinnamon stick 

from of the oatmeal…

Place the warmed, spiced
 banana & walnut topping 
on the oatmeal
