½ tablespoon coconut oil (can sub canola oil)

1 banana, sliced into rounds

½ cup fonio

1 cup milk, divided (nut milk is also great)

1 tablespoon peanut butter

2 teaspoons honey

½ teaspoon cinnamon

  1. Heat a small skillet over medium-low heat. Melt coconut oil in the skillet, then fry banana slices for 2-3 minutes on each side. Turn off the heat and let banana slices stay warm on the skillet.
  2. In a small pot, bring fonio and ½ cup milk to a near boil, then reduce heat all the way to low and let sit until liquid is absorbed, about 3 minutes. Stir in the peanut butter, honey, cinnamon, and additional ½ cup milk, until porridge reaches desired texture.
  3. Divide into 2 bowls and top with caramelized banana slices.
