Fancy Oatmeal

October 01, 2014
In wintertime, with my busy schedule, I need a hearty “stick to your ribs” breakfast. As a kid, my grandma would make batches and batches of her signature oatmeal every time I visited her. She kept her recipe simple and magical, always with a dusting of cinnamon on the top. To add a twist to this traditional treat, I like to make fancy oatmeal with just a few special toppings.

Spiced Apple Oatmeal

Fancy Oatmeal
This is my go-to fall breakfast! Juicy apples add crunch to a giant bowl of oatmeal, and I love the way the tartness of the apples complements the smooth pumpkin spice mix. With this spiced apple oatmeal, and a good magazine, your day is off to a great start. Full Recipe

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

I swear, this oatmeal tastes just like homemade pumpkin pie! Sometimes I like to trick my taste buds into thinking I’m having pie for breakfast. Except with a special blend of spices and crunchy nuts, it’s even better than dessert! Full Recipe

Baked Berry Oatmeal

Fancy Oatmeal
Baked Berry Oatmeal is basically my favorite thing ever. I just mix it up and pop it in the oven, and out comes an amazing breakfast I can serve to all my guests. Every summer I buy way too many berries, so I rinse and dry them and throw them in Ziploc® brand freezer bags to store in the freezer for later. Full Recipe
