Blueberry Banana Cranachan

Here is a Scottish dessert that not only has a twist, but is turned on it's head.  A traditional cranachan uses raspberries.  This one uses blueberries and bananas.  It is healthy and very tasty.  If you aren't partaking in alcohol, use orange juice.  This would make it a good breakfast then, as well.

1/2 cup rolled oats (toasted)
1 cup whipped cream (sweetened with 1/4 c. confectioners sugars and a 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract.)
1 cup blueberries
2 tbsp. honey
2 bananas (sliced)
2 tbsp. whisky (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread oats out in a thin layer on a baking sheet. Toast in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes, or until nut-brown. Set aside to cool. Remove them from the pan for faster cooling.

Mix the honey into the blueberries.

To assemble layer banana slices, then oats, then blueberries amongst 4 dessert cups.  Then a dollop of cream. Repeat, but before the final whipped cream dollop pour in a bit of whisky in each dessert cup. Serve.
