Chocolate Banana Swirl Oatmeal

When I came up with the idea for this Saturday’s “This Week in Oatmeal” theme (which is Black & White), I instinctively starting dreaming up my own ideas. Since I happened to be out of the obvious black and white toppings (Oreos, white chocolate chips, coconut butter), this recipe seemed like my best option.

Brownie Baked Oatmeal – Big Batch!

I always promise people to publish more “big batch” versions of baked oatmeal, but I rarely get around to it. Well, I got around to it.

The benefit of an entire 8×8 pan of Brownie Baked Oatmeal is that it is a definite crowd-pleaser. Who wouldn’t want to eat oatmeal if it tasted like a brownie? If you find yourself needing to make breakfast for a group of friends or your family, this one is a safe bet. (more…)

Pear Orange Fudge Oatmeal

Since Citrus Pear Oatmeal was a success, I decided I could give it another go, this time with chocolate. 😉

I’m currently relaxing at my family’s home in Minnesota, so I won’t make this post very long. But if you like Citrus Pear Oatmeal, or you like those orange chocolate thingies, this oatmeal will have a lot of flavors you will enjoy. And it’s easy, too! (more…)


Cocoa Candy Cane PB2

Looking for an ultra easy way to Christmas-ify your favorite oatmeal recipe? This topping needs half of a standard candy cane and can be whipped up in about two minutes!

The toughest part is just deciding what oatmeal to put it on top of. Not all flavors mesh with mint, after all! I put mine on top of glorious Thin Mints Oatmeal, but I could also see it atop Brownie Baked Oatmeal, Sweet Potato Fudge Oatmeal, or Mint Brownie Baked Oatmeal. (more…)


Fudgy Rosemary and Fig Oatmeal

If you liked my Salted Rosemary Brownie Batter Oatmeal (and OMG why wouldn’t you it is so good you have to try it now whatareyouwaitingfor), you will love this!

This oatmeal is a close relative of that recipe, but I swapped the dates for dried figs. While dates are great for giving a relatively neutral sweetness, figs add another layer of flavor (in addition to sweetening the porridge)! I love figs and rosemary together, and rosemary and chocolate together, so the three of them all at once is a dream come true. 😍 (more…)

Salted Tahini Fudge Oatmeal

#tahinitahinitahini

There is something I love about that bitter spread. I think it’s best use is in salad, which is what makes me go through my jars so quickly, but I also love it on oatmeal from time to time. Everything that made me cringe the first time I had it is why I love it now. I don’t think you can understand that sentence unless you’re a tahini convert yourself.

(If you need  help acquiring a taste for tahini, check out this post.)

Matcha Yogurt and Fudgy Overnight Oats Parfait

Now that I’ve experimented with matcha powder a few times in my oats, I have established a few rules:

  1. It has to be an overnight recipe, or at least some type of recipe that will allow it to “rest” before being eaten. In my experience, adding matcha to stovetop oats and eating it right away always results in bitter and excessively earthy flavors.
  2. It has to be combined with ingredients that will cut that bitterness. I thought citrus would do this, but it seems that yogurt, cashew cream, and banana do a better job of this. This became especially true when I tried a grapefruit-matcha drink after my 5K last weekend. (Ew, ew, ew.)
  3. Don’t skimp on sweetener. No matter how much you think you like bitter things.

With these rules in mind, here is my latest take on matcha.
