This is an incredibly difficult list to maintain. For the longest time, I struggled to grasp what “favorite” meant. There are recipes I’m really proud of (like my Neapolitan Baked Oatmeal), but these aren’t necessarily the same recipes I make again and again. Should I pick the recipes that rocked my socks once or twice, or should I pick my standard “lovers” that I run to again and again when I’m craving some reliably delicious oatmeal?
In the end, I went with the latter. These are the oatmeal recipes that have not only wowed me once, but have been made multiple times to please my stomach! Warning: due to my ever-changing preferences, this list changes all the time! One thing that will always remain present on this list: peanut butter.
My Top 10 Favorite Oatmeal Recipes!

This oatmeal is way healthier than it looks and sounds. It’s sweetened by a mashed banana, but you would never know it! Close relatives: Peppermint Brownie Baked Oatmeal, Brownie Baked Oatmeal with Mint Avocado Frosting
Complete, total, absolute, wonderful, unbelievable perfection. The
only reason this isn’t higher on the list is because I have a personal
preference for stove-top oatmeal. IT. TASTES. JUST. LIKE. THE. COOKIE. Close relatives: the entire cookie collection
As if brownie batter wasn’t already amazing, I added
espresso powder and swapped in almond butter. WHAT. If my sensitive system could handle chocolate and coffee better, I would eat this EVERY MORNING. Close relatives: Brownie Batter Oatmeal, all the brownie baked oatmeals
I love this with strawberries, but no matter which berry
you choose, this oatmeal is easy and delicious.
Look how creamy! This recipe is a cozy and sophisticated play on classic fall flavors. The sweet-and-salty game is strong in this one. Close relatives: Apple Pie Steel Cut Oatmeal, Maple Sweet Potato Oatmeal, Orange Maple Pecan Oatmeal
Peaches are my favorite fruit. Almond butter is caviar for
poor people. This is obviously perfection.
Inspired by a rather obscure but fabulous cookie, this rosemary-chocolate combination is proof that rosemary is the QUEEN OF HERBS. Close relatives: Rosemary Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal, Rosemary Chocolate Chip Oatmeal
A spin-off my (former #1) recipe, Fudgy Banana & Peanut Butter Oatmeal, this cardamom-spiced oatmeal goes great with chocolate peanut butter, almond butter, coconut-peanut butter, and more. It’s lovely with fresh strawberries or pomegranate arils. I eat this 4-6 days a week. I. Love. This. Recipe.
