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.
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.)
Every summer, I try to post a recipe or two with fresh peaches. They have such a short season, and they’re so good. This week, I came through. Whaddaya think?
Before I tell you how to make this, here’s a quick-but-not-that-quick story.
Moving to Denver was a tough adjustment, as I knew it would be. (Is any move easy?) There’s nothing wrong with Denver. It’s actually pretty glorious, and there’s a reason it’s consistently ranked as one of the happiest and healthiest cities in the country. But I do have a fondness for the grit, noise, and chaos of New York City that made it tough to leave. Denver feels like a suburb in comparison.
I had two options: sulk about missing NYC, or embrace my new city. I’ve tried to do the latter (although I’ve certainly done my fair share of sulking).
Tada! I made chia pudding. The photos suck, but I want to share the recipe with you anyway because I’m proud of it. 🙂
I only got into chia pudding recently. I never had anything against it, but I just never went out of my way for it. A pivotal moment in my relationship with chia pudding happened last December in Madrid <3. It was the day after Christmas, and I was about to go to my long-awaited appointment for my first tattoo (!!).

You can probably imagine how this recipe was born.
Yep: I wanted chocolate oatmeal, but I also wanted PB&J oatmeal.
For a long time, I thought these recipes had to exist separately. But one morning, while feeling particularly stubborn about wanting BOTH recipes, I just tried it. It worked.

I feel so honored and proud to be sharing a recipe for Orange-Rhubarb Oatmeal with Orange PB2 that Lauren has chosen as one of the winners of “Spring” Oatmeal Contest.
On my 23rd birthday, I showed you how to make this coconut-pecan butter, so it’s only fitting that I brought this rich, cozy topping back for my 27th birthday post, right?
Today’s recipe is really a stovetop version of my German Chocolate Cake Baked Oatmeal, which I made half a decade ago. It’s really just a chocolate oatmeal made memorable by the coconut-pecan topping. Since it’s a cake batter, it’s perfect for celebrating birthdays. 🙂

Funfetti baked oatmeal with four ingredients + salt?? Yeah, you read that correctly. Four ingredients. Do you know how rare it is to have a baked oatmeal meet the sole criterion for the “5 ingredients or less” tag? Very. Very rare.
This rarity is made possible through the use of a nut butter. I made this recipe with You Fresh Naturals “Birthday Cake” Cashew-Coconut Butter. Because the nut butter is already sweetened and flavored to the max, it lends itself quite easily to a “5 ingredients or less” recipe. It pretty much does all the work.

It happened. I finally caved and put turmeric in my oatmeal.
I resisted creating turmeric recipes for a while because of my own bias against anything labeled a superfood. I don’t like it when people treat single ingredients as the ultimate fix for health. I loved turmeric, but I didn’t want to hop on the turmeric-hawking recipe train. Because I’m stubborn. 🙂
But ultimately, I didn’t want that to stop me from creating a delicious recipe (with a beautiful golden yellow hue). So turmeric it is. (more…)
I made a turmeric recipe. I’ve resisted because I don’t want to be cliche and do what everyone else is doing (which is posting a million turmeric recipes), but at the end of the day, I do like turmeric. So here we are.
This PB2 has a tiny amount of coconut oil in it. This has multiple benefits, the main two being a richer texture and a smooth, coconut flavor. That rich texture and flavor work well with the earthy turmeric, if I do say so myself. You could use coconut butter, technically, but I rarely have that on hand (but I always have coconut oil as it is my preferred cooking oil). (more…)
