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!
(last updated 01/13/2016)
This oatmeal is way healthier than it looks and sounds. It’s sweetened by a mashed banana, but you would never know it!
One taste of this and I died of happiness. Best. Savory. Oatmeal.
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.
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.
I love this with strawberries, but no matter which berry
you choose, this oatmeal is easy and delicious.
I love all of my salted recipes dearly, so I tried to pick just one
to represent my addiction on this list. This was the one I chose. Look how creamy!
This recipe married two of my favorites (see #1 and #6). Perfect for those days when you want #1 but you also want to use those fresh strawberries in your fridge . . .
Peaches are my favorite fruit. Almond butter is caviar for
poor people. This is obviously perfection.
Bananas make it creamy and sweet. Cocoa powder makes it fudgy. Peanut butter
makes it salty and rich. I ate this for breakfast on my 23rd AND 24th birthday, after bad days at work, and as a treat when I accomplished important goals! I make this all the time.
