Love it! The benefit bar is a nice touch. Sounds scrummy!
I've gotta make some oatmeal this week, I keep forgetting about it when I'm planning my breakfast in the morning! I couldn't find plain canned pumpkin in my supermarket for some reason, but maybe I'll try the carrot cake oatmeal instead.
Favourite oatmeal right now is hands down
pure pumpkin puree mixed with cinnamon/nutmeg/ginger mixed in once the oats are nearly done
topped with crunchy almond butter :)
I finally tried pumpkin pie oatmeal today! Topped with toasted flaked almonds and a splash of soymilk - so delicious, I'm totally hooked.
pumpkin oatmeal ROCKS!
I am obesessed with overnight soaked oats for sure! There is a link in my profile to my strawberry cheescake overnight oats. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
Eating some of this right now... 1/2 sliced (thin) sweet potato, 1/2 apple, 1/8 c oats, 1/8 c TVP, wheat bran. Microwave for 4 minutes, or until the sweet potato is cooked. Add a couple chunks of frozen banana. This makes a TON of food. Hot, filling, and no artificial crap.
yummy that looks so good
one package of instant oats microwaved for a min
1/3 egg beaters added to it and cooked for 2 min
smear with smuckers sugar free jam and greek yogurt with peanut butter on the side and its a huge pbj cake. so good i usually eat it for dinner haha
Lately I've been adding a scoop of homemade apple butter and a dash of cinnamon to my oatmeal. It's good stuff.
I've been experimenting a lot with oatmeal lately:
Chocolate-coconut oatmeal: cook oats with water and a tablespoon of shredded coconut. Stir in sweetener and a spoonful of cocoa powder and finish with a splash of cold almond or coconut milk.
Chocolate-hazelnut oatmeal: cook oats with water and almond milk. Stir in cocoa powder and hazelnut flavoured coffee creamer.
Peaches and coconut cream oatmeal: cook oats with water and 1/2 cup chopped canned peaches in juice. Finish with 1/2 cup coconut milk (the non-dairy beverage kind, not the heavy coconut cream you cook with).
absolute favorites (that i've had over and over and over and i'm still not sick of yet.) i probably eat oatmeal every day of my life.
i usually start with a base of cooked oats in almond milk with chia seeds and flax seeds and half a banana. i like to top with cold items to cool down the oats.
pumpkin pie oatmeal - 1/4 cup pumpkin puree, generous few shakes of pumpkin pie spice, topped with some pecans and granola (alternatively almond butter) for "crust", brown sugar / stevia sweetened and few drops of vanilla extract.
blueberry chocolate oatmeal - topped with frozen blueberries melted in, sachet of instant hot chocolate (rich ones for high cal, diet ones for low cal - swiss miss is great for this, alternatively 1 tbsp cacao powder), topped with crunchy cereal or granola, sweetened with stevia.
french vanilla oatmeal - topped with 1 tbsp of french vanilla coffee creamer, sprinkling of coconut flakes / nuts / granola of your choice! makes it so rich and creamy, i highly suggest the non-dairy one made with coconut milk.
carrot cake oatmeal - oatmeal base mixed with with half of a shredded small carrot (or two baby carrots?), vanilla extract, brown sugar, some mango/pineapple. icing - few tbsp greek yogurt mixed with maple syrup (can exchange for sugar free if watching cals). toasted pecans!
apple crisp oatmeal - oatmeal topped with chopped apples, microwaved with some brown sugar/stevia/cinnamon, few drops vanilla extract, sweetened, topped with some additional raw oats and broilied for "crisp" (alternatively - granola!)
TRIPLE chocolate oatmeal - cooked with dark cacao powder, sweetened with stevia / sweetener / sugar, topped with mini chocolate chips and small spoonful of nutella and macadamia nuts. oh man... chocolate overload!
Wow, that's quite the oatmeal menu you've got there, redbeanbunny! I love the idea of Greek yogurt "icing" on the carrot cake oatmeal. I have got to try carrot cake oatmeal one of these days - I keep forgetting.
A couple ideas I've got, but have yet to try:
Gingerbread oatmeal - oatmeal with a tablespoon of blackstrap molasses and a generous amount of ginger and cinnamon mixed in (maybe some cloves and nutmeg, too).
Banana-coconut oatmeal - oatmeal with half a mashed banana and a tablespoon of shredded coconut cooked into it, topped with coconut milk.
Reese's peanut butter cup oatmeal - oatmeal cooked with milk and a tablespoon or two of peanut butter or peanut flour, plus cocoa and vanilla extract stirred in.
Butter pecan oatmeal - oatmeal with milk, butter pecan-flavoured coffee creamer, toasted pecans
Black sesame oatmeal - oatmeal cooked with milk and finely ground black sesame seeds
Red bean oatmeal - oatmeal cooked with milk and a spoonful of sweetened red bean paste (yes, redbeanbunny - inspired by your name! I'd forgotten how much I love red bean...I'm going to have to go get some now)
Red date oatmeal - oats slow-cooked with milk and dried red dates until the dates soften and infuse the oats with their yummy flavour. This one I actually have made - I ate it for breakfast every morning when I was living in China. Except I would add a packet of powdered soymilk to it instead of milk!
Blackberry oatmeal - I just remembered I have a ton of blackberries in my freezer. I think this will be my breakfast tomorrow!
Just wanted to add some Christmas themed oatmeal recipes I experimented with a few years ago.
Here are the links to the recipes from my journal:
Today I had gingerbread oatmeal for dinner...followed by banana coconut oatmeal for dessert. I'm obsessed! The banana coconut in particular was to die for. I'd never cooked banana in with the oats before - it got all caramelized and...wow. Maybe next time I'll add vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg and make banana bread oatmeal.
I tried the chocolate peanut butter cup oatmeal and it was promising, but needs to be perfected. All I have in the house right now is crunchy peanut butter, but I think it needs to be creamy. And I'll add a little vanilla extract and a pinch of salt next time, too.
Oh, and I tried the blackberry oatmeal, too - blackberries are fantastic in oatmeal! They're great alone, but even better with some chopped canned peaches.
We eat steal cut oats all the time, my mom is diabetic and that is one of the things she really enjoys. We cook ours in a rice cooker, making up enough for several days and then just reheat and go.
This week we tried something new, a "vanilla chi" oatmeal. Made two cups worth of vanilla chi tea and then used that to make the oats in. SOOOO yummy. We eat ours with some plain yogurt and a bit of splenda. Seriously good!
The go to recipe is the oats cooked with crushed pineapple and some cinnamon. Seriously, it tastes like cake :P
STEEK CUT OATS
1 c water.
1 tbl brown sugar,touch of cinnimin
1/4 c sc oats, touch of salt
put all ingredients in pot bring to boil when starts to thicken turn down med low cook till desired consistency stiring occasionally about 1/2 hr ENJOY
Warm milk ( not boiling ) Mix rest of ingredients in casserole dish. Pour milk, mix well. Bake at 350 for 45 min. Delicious.
So I tried out the chocolate-orange idea I've had on my mind for a while and it is AMAZING. Hot, creamy, chocolatey, citrussy decadence in a bowl. The ultimate oatmeal. And it's so amazingly healthy! Cook 1/4 cup oats with 2/3 cup water and the juice and zest of one mandarin orange. When cooked, stir in one heaping spoonful cocoa powder and sweetener to taste. It tastes exactly like a Terry's chocolate orange without the sick feeling after!
here are some of my favorites.!:3 they all serve 1
- 1/2 cup oats (50g)
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- sweetener, such as 1 1/2 T maple syrup or 1 to 1 1/2 packs stevia (I omitted, but I’ve cautioned y’all before about my lack of sweet tooth.)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (60g) (Or sub banana… it’s awesome this way!)
- 1/4 cup milk, creamer, juice, or water (I used 60g)
- 1/8 tsp salt
- Handful of chocolate chips (and a few for the top, too!)
- Optional: unless you like the taste of fat-free baking, add 1-2T oil, vegan butter, or nut butter (If oil, scale the milk back a little. If vegan butter, scale the salt back a little.)
- Optional: 1/4 to 1/2 tsp cinnamon (If you like cinnamon in chocolate chip cookies)
Preheat oven to 380 degrees. Combine dry ingredients, then mix in wet. Pour into a small baking pan, loaf pan, or 1-cup ramekin (or, for mini boats, two 1/2-cup ramekins). Cook for 20 minutes, or more until it’s firm. Finally, set your oven to “high broil” for 3-5 more minutes (or simply just bake longer, but broiling gives it a nice crust). Don’t forget to spray your ramekins first if you want your cakes to pop out.
- 1 serving rolled oats (40g)
- 3/4c nondairy milk
- 1 banana
- 1 1/2 T cocoa powder
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
- extra sweetener if desired
Combine all ingredients and cook, uncovered, over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes. When it starts to bubble, stir occasionally. When I make this for others, I stir in 1 T sugar (or 1 packet nunaturals stevia).
- 1/2 cup (40g) rolled oats
- 1 cup water
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 medium banana, sliced into thin pieces
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1-1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder (my favorite is Penzeys Spices Dutch Process High Fat Cocoa… so rich)
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp stevia
- 1 tbsp (17g) peanut butter (my favorite is Trader Joe’s Valencia PB with Roasted Flax Seeds)
In a medium size pan, heat the oats, water, and salt over medium heat. Once the mixture begins to simmer, approximately 5-6 minutes, stir in the sliced banana. Continue to stir until the banana breaks down and the mixture thickens. Add the vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa powder, and stevia, and stir until incorporated.
I really like the texture and thickness that the banana adds. Once it cooks down, you don’t really have many banana chucks, but just a hint of banana bread type flavor throughout and thick, creamy oats. If you would prefer to omit the banana flavor, or reduce calories, you can definitely leave the banana out. This is more of a personal preference.
Pour oats into a serving bowl and top with peanut butter.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
