Okay, so it’s not really snowing. But it is in my bowl! By the way, this post was thisclose to being named ’50 Shades of Oatmeal’. It’s always so hard to title these posts. In other news…
check out this incredible bowl of oatmeal – yes, I’m sure there are oats under this mess – with all the toppings. Crumbled pumpkin muffin, pecans, peanut butter, chia seeds, and shredded coconut that didn’t want to sprink-OOPS.
Please ignore that binder with chemistry homework in the background – sometimes I’m honestly too lazy to move everything to take a pretty photo. I don’t know how other bloggers do it, because I just want to dig in! Here’s what the scene actually looks like, with the mess in the kitchen and all kinds of nibbles on the table.
I had a similar bowl the next day – pumpkin oatmeal cooked with cinnamon and flax, topped with peanut butter, hemp hearts, pecans, and chocolate chips. 🙂
Why, oh why must oatmeal be so heavenly? The nut butter and muffin are my favourite parts and I always get seconds on the toppings 🙂
ANOTHER bowl of pumpkin oatmeal on the right – this time topped with coconut, chia, and pecans. Huge scoop of peanut butter + maple syrup on top!
This bowl, AKA Pumpkin Oatmeal Take Four, is super thick because it was once baked pumpkin oatmeal. I simply heated up the baked oats in a saucepan with extra almond milk. This texture was different in a good way – I really enjoyed this bowl, which is topped with PB, hemp hearts, and maple syrup.
I’m surprised I’m not orange, because this was ANOTHER pumpkin oatmeal breakfast. Baked, as mentioned above. You can read the recipe HERE. I highly recommend it! I topped this guy with pecans, hemp hearts, chia seeds, and maple syrup. Nut butter is buried somewhere down there too, of course. 😛
More baked oatmeal! Are you getting sick of oats yet?
This was my banana baked oatmeal topped with PB, hemp hearts and maple syrup, alongside two scrambled eggs, sliced banana, and ketchup for zee eggs. This breakfast had a little bit of everything and I absolutely loved it!
Want to see something different? Okay, these aren’t pumpkin or banana oats, but my favourite chocolate oatmeal. 🙂 This was so, super yummy topped with crumbled banana muffin and peanut butter. I always make my cocoa oatmeal with one super-ripe mashed banana, which really adds to the creaminess and sweetness. I don’t make this with any sugar (other than the mashed ripe banana), so it really isn’t as sweet/dessert-like as it seems.
A similar but different bowl the next day topped with more PB and shredded coconut. Whenever I have cocoa oatmeal, I never want the bowl to end!
Another day I tried to make baked peanut butter cookie oatmeal, and I stuck a chocolate kiss on top. This baked oatmeal recipe for one was not super tasty in my opinion, so I won’t be sharing the recipe. I still liked it though – the crispy texture on top was so unique. But I think the flavours need to be played around with. Or maybe I just really miss that blob of peanut butter on top. 😉
That’s all I have for you today – have a delicious long Easter weekend everyone! 🙂
