An Ode To Oatmeal
I am a cruel blogger, I know. Every Wednesday, I share delicious looking waffles with you knowing that many of you can’t make them yourselves. There is a shortage of waffle makers in kitchens across the globe. Where is the government lobby for this??
So this week, I am sharing another delicious breakfast that you can make at home! All you need is a microwave or a pot, a love for carbohydrates, and a little creativity ;)
My friends, today we are talking oatmeal. The following is an assortment of some of my most notable bowls to date. There is a vast array of combos you can do and I hope these only ignite ideas of your own! Be forewarned – I need protein in my oats to satisfy my belly.
As a side note, the above photo seems other-worldly to me. That majestic river and greenery used to be the view out my window in New Brunswick. Now I step out the door and am assaulted by noise and traffic. Ahhhh, city livin’ ;)
Onward to the hot creamy carbfest!
- 1 packet multi grain instant oats
- 1 cup water
- 1/3 sliced banana
- 1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
- mini marshmallows
I ate these on my birthday, hence the name ;)
Oatmeal with a whole egg cooked in. Read the step by step guide here!
As a nod to the PB&J sandwich, I like to sandwich half the toppings in the middle.
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup water
- pinch salt
- 1 tsp Earth Balance
- 1 breakfast sausage,sliced and stirred into oats
- 1 fried egg
- lotsa saaaahlsa
Don’t Try This At Home Oats
When attempting to make steel cut oats overnight in your ginormous slow-cooker, I suggest making a LARGE batch. Smaller bathes apparently just get crusty. Unless you want oat crackers.
Sweet n’ Salty Oats
Rolled oats cooked on the stove top with water and protein powder, then topped with chocolate chips, peanut butter and pretzels.
Marshamallow fluff + peanut butter. Or in this case, made better with chocolate peanut butter.
Oats Topped With Oats
Creamy custard oats topped with crunchy granola and molasses. In this case, Beek’s coconut chia granola.
- 2/3 cup oat bran
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 2/3 scoop chocolate whey powder
- 1 package Via instant coffee
- chocolate chips
- roasted almonds
Reduces morning sweats that may occur when attempting to eat hot oatmeal and drink hot coffee at the same time.
Oats In A Jar
If you hate the hard bottom part of a nut butter jar like me, this solves your problem. Pouring hot oatmeal into a glass jar melts it and mixes it in!
Oatmeal & Yogurt Parfait
Cream of Wheat
Welcome to autumn bloggie friends! It may not be waffles, but I hope you get to enjoy some warm breakfasts this week :)
Question of the Day: What’s your favourite way to eat oatmeal? I like it custard-style with rolled oats, cashew butter, maple syrup, dates and coconut!
