Salted Lavender Fudge Oatmeal

*hides face in shame*

So. There was a week in January when I just couldn’t make a post happen–and so it didn’t happen. Then another week passed, and another week, and another week … and here we are.

Previously, I might have thought, “Well that’s it. I can’t show my face to these wonderful people again. I’ve let them down.” But during my unplanned break, I thought a lot to myself about what “failure” would actually look like, or whether or not me being absent for two months was truly going to ruin people’s lives. (It won’t.)

Nutella Latte Oatmeal

Happy December! Truthfully, winter is my least favorite season, by a mile and a half, but recipes like this sure do help fight off those winter blues. It’s a mixture of hazelnut, coffee, and cocoa, and because that’s just not enough, it’s topped with a spoonful of silky chocolate hazelnut spread. I mean, look at it.

Earl Grey Zucchini Oatmeal with Chocolate Hazelnut Butter

I haven’t made “zoats” in a while, so here we go.

I got into earl grey tea through the London Fog, which is a drink I’ve noticed is becoming more popular throughout the country. (If you love London Fogs like I do, try my London Fog Oatmeal.)

Fudgy Balsamic Oatmeal with Strawberry-Basil Relish

Friends! Your support last week was stunning. I half-expected to hear crickets when the post went live, assuming all of you had given up on me and moved on.

Last week’s Blueberry Lavender Oatmeal is something I am proud of, which is something I couldn’t say about previous posts leading up to my, um, “extended break.” I see the imperfections in the photo, but they don’t taunt me. I look at it and think, “You did that. You’re not a skilled photographer, but you did that.”

As always, I will continue to play with both stupidly simple recipes, and fun-yet-kind-of-out-there recipes. This recipe falls in the latter category.

Not that this recipe is hard, or even time-consuming. But it does take a little more effort than just adding some applesauce. (more…)

Tahini Oatmeal with Raspberries and White Chocolate

Did you like last month’s Tahini Baked Oatmeal with Raspberries and White Chocolate? Because here it is in its stove-top form. You’re welcome.

Or perhaps you didn’t try it because you think baked oatmeal is kind of a pain (I agree). In that case, here it is in its stove-top form. You’re welcome.

Or perhaps you didn’t realize I had posted the baked recipe at all. You should check it out, but you should also try it in its stove-top form. You’re welcome. ?

Marzipan Fudge Oatmeal with Cherries

MARZIPAN. Chocolate-covered marzipan, to be exact. The marzipan flavor of Ritter Sport chocolate is the ONLY vegan one. They have other dark chocolate varieties, but for some reason, only this one is vegan. I don’t get it, but I won’t complain; this chocolate bar is one of my favorite treats.

This chocolate-covered marzipan is joined with some fresh cherries (they’re in season now!!) and sprinkled atop a fudgy, almond-flavored porridge. The almond echoes and enhances the marzipan theme, so even if you only have a bit of the chocolate-covered marzipan on top, each bite will still be reminiscent of this almond confection. (more…)

Chocolate Campfire Oatmeal with Graham Crackers

Okay, the title might give it away: This is S’mores Oatmeal 2.0. The original version was great, but I wanted to take another stab at it. It’s not often I have vegan marshmallows in my kitchen (by ‘not often,’ I mean ‘pretty much never’), so I wanted to create a s’mores-themed porridge that could be done with no marshmallows at all.

I know, I’m a rebel.

You might think, “How could you create s’mores without marshmallows?” Or worse, “I don’t want s’mores without marshmallows!”

However, I promise you, this oatmeal is actually better than my original s’mores recipe, in my opinion. I can’t explain it, but I found this one way more enjoyable. (more…)
