Here are a few more oatmeal ideas! My daughter and niece LOVE the s’mores oatmeal. I make one pot of oatmeal and just add different toppings for everyone who’s eating it. I didn’t use measurements on the toppings I just add a little of it all but not so much that it takes away from the healthiness of oatmeal.
Adding yogurt or a mashed banana to oatmeal is a healthier way to add some sweetness. I also use Agave sweetener or honey.
1/2c. 10-grain hot cereal (I used Bob’s Red Mill)
1c. vanilla soy milk
1 tsp vanilla
¼ c. coconut
MIX water, soy milk and vanilla, bring to a boil. Add oats, cereal, coconut and cook on low, simmer for 10-20 minutes until cooked to the consistency you like (unless you’re using quick cook oats it will only take a few minutes to cook).
Add the topping of your choice:
Topping – Date and Nut – MY NEW FAVORITE
1T brown sugar
1T dried dates
small pat of butter
1T toasted pecans
Topping – S’mores
Crushed graham crackers
And the finished product….(mixed up a bit)…
1/2c greek style yogurt
1T. honey or other favorite sweetener
Toasted almonds or walnuts
