While I completely support eating any oatmeal at any time of the year (Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal in July? Yep, I’ve done it), it can be satisfying to enjoy seasonal recipes, especially during the holidays.
For me, and I’m assuming many other people, holidays like Christmas become a weekend (or week-long!) event. Here are ten recipes to start every morning with a festive bowl of oats.
Not only is this sweetened by bananas, but it makes more than a single serving. Hizzah!
My favorite cookie in oatmeal form. I don’t know what it is about snickerdoodles, but that cinnamon goodness beats a plain ol’ sugar cookie any day.
Chocolate and spice and everything nice. What says “Winter Break” more than hot chocolate?
I don’t know why peppermint = Christmas, but I’m not complaining.
Eggnog . . . cranberries . . . chestnuts . . . It’s Christmas in a bowl.
When you bake cranberries, they burst, letting their fruity juices seep into the rest of the oatmeal. Enjoy it brownie-style!
My mom used to make these cookies every Christmas. Something says Christmas to me more than a cushion of a peanut butter cookie with a chocolate Kiss on top.
You can never have too much gingerbread. For an indulgent but still totally nutritious holiday breakfast, add some cream cheese (I use Tofutti!) to cozy, warm gingerbread baked oatmeal.
