Winter is the perfect time of year for a warm bowl of oatmeal, and quite perfectly, January is National Oatmeal Month! Oatmeal is definitely something that should have a whole month dedicated to it with its nutritious and delicious qualities. We took our favorite recipes and toppings and yum-ified some of them a bit to make them that much more enjoyable in the cold, brisk January mornings.
1. Superfood Almond Butter and Berry Oatmeal
Thanks to the @dailyoatstagram, a PB & J has been transformed into a delicious morning treat with our Superfood Almond Butter mixed into organic oats, topped with berries, an extra dollop of Superfood Almond Butter, and a sprinkle of cacao nibs (we recommend Navitas Organics)!
2. Chunky Monkey Oat Bowl
3. Fig, Pistachio, and Honey
Not only is this one of the prettiest oatmeal bowls, but also one of the most delicious! Use your choice of organic oats and add in some cinnamon, vanilla, honey, a pinch of sea salt, and almond milk. The best part is the delicious coconut yogurt topping with sliced fig and chopped pistachios. For the full recipe, visit Recipe Runner.
4. Maple Pecan Oats
If you are missing Fall in the midst of a winter snowstorm, this recipe will take you back a few months to when the weather was actually enjoyable. Add in your favorite organic maple syrup (the more local, the better!) into any organic oats and a pinch of sea salt. For the decorations, sprinkle pecans, dried cranberries, and pepitas across the top. If you’re feeling adventurous, we recommend adding a dollop of our Superfood Sunflower Butter.
5. Dark Chocolate, Cherry, and Coconut
One of my personal favorites, and can be enjoyed at pretty much any time of day and year, for that matter. Make some organic oats and add some organic coconut sugar to sweeten them up a bit. Simply cut some organic bing cherries in half to add along the edges of the bowl. Sprinkle in some organic coconut flakes and Equal Exchange chocolate chunks. For a little added fun, I like to drizzle our Espresso Peanut Butter across the top!
6. Chai Spiced Oats With Apple Slices
To spice things up, literally, take four teaspoons of cinnamon, two teaspoons of ginger, one teaspoon cardamom, and a half teaspoon of cloves and stir it into your oats along with some honey for sweetness. Slice your favorite apple and add it to the bowl. To add a little something extra, squeeze some Superfood Almond Butter to the center of the bowl. And voilà, you have a chai latte in oatmeal form!
7. Cinnamon Raisin Cookie Oatmeal
Essentially one of my favorite cookies, in “raw” form. Start with the same oatmeal base as you normally would for a bowl of oatmeal, and incorporate a tsp of vanilla and some honey, depending on how sweet you like it. Then add a heaping spoonful of raisins and cinnamon. I also like to put walnuts in for an extra crunch. Swirl in some organic vanilla yogurt or some of our Plant Protein + Probiotic Almond Butter and sprinkle with some cinnamon!
8. Greek Oatmeal Bowl
To make a bowl of this savory oatmeal, boil 3/4 cup of vegetable broth and 3/4 cup water and then add in 1 clove of minced garlic, some fresh dill, a pinch of salt, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Let it boil then reduce the heat down to medium-high heat. Add in half cup of organic steel cut oats and let cook for about 15-20 minutes. While cooking, sautée some more garlic in a pan and toss in some cherry tomato halves and spinach. Incorporate the veggies into the oatmeal and sprinkle with feta cheese and some extra dill. I even like to eat it with some fresh cucumber slices!
9. Thai Peanut Oatmeal
Cook your favorite oatmeal according to the directions. Meanwhile, stir fry some broccoli, mushrooms, and carrots. To make the sauce that you will be adding to the oats once they are done cooking, mix 1/4 cup of our Superfood Peanut Butter, 2 tablespoons of gluten-free soy sauce, two tablespoons of sesame oil, two tablespoons of honey, a clove of crushed garlic, and two tablespoons of rice vinegar. Incorporate the sauce to the oats and veggies, and enjoy!
10. Cheesy Savory Oatmeal With Pesto and Egg
Last, but definitely not least, we have a cheesy alternative to your traditional oats. Cook some steel cut oats to the labeled cooking instructions and add in some gouda cheese. This one also calls for roasted potatoes, soft-boiled eggs,and homemade pesto. This definitely puts our 10 favorite oatmeals over the top! To find the entire recipe, visit Snixy Kitchen.
