All the Oatmeals of My Kitchen

Welcome to my kitchen of oatmeals! I used to hate oatmeal as a kid unless it was the Quaker Instant Oatmeal with all of the added sugars. As an adult, my love of oatmeal has blossomed and become a more healthy relationship (pun intended). Making it at home gives me the opportunity to make it healthy and flavorful without having to eat the same thing every day (unless you were the cool kid with the variety pack).

Here’s my current favorite: Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal!

I make mine quick and easy, no boiling necessary!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup oats (I use the quick 1-minute oats from Quaker)
1 cup milk (soy or almond)
1/2 Tbsp chia seeds
Cinnamon to taste (usually several dashes to evenly cover the top)
Nutmeg to taste (usually a generous dash)
Generous pinch of brown sugar (for non-vegans)
Half an apple, chopped

Place everything except the apples into a microwavable bowl and mix it all up, then microwave for 1.5 to 2 minutes

Stir well, then top with apples and a dash of cinnamon.

It’s so darn good. I say brown sugar for non-vegans because it turns out, most sugar is filtered with bone char from animals. However, there are some brands that don’t. The Vegan Products Guide has a list of those companies that are bone char free. I may have to invest in some of those sugars, because I can’t live without something sweet!

Now for some other oatmeal topping options. The three basics (oatmeal, milk, chia seeds) are still the same, but I like to throw in other options every once in a while. Here’s a list:

Chopped pecans, walnuts
Sliced almonds
Macadamias
Dried fruit (raisins, cranberries,etc)
Chocolate chips (non-vegans)
Honey (non-vegans)
Fresh fruit (strawberries, blueberries, banana, raspberries, blackberries, pear, peach, apple)
Jam, jelly, fruit preserves
Nut butters
Shredded coconut
Coconut butter (I’ve been dying to buy some of this)

There are really endless possibilities! Top your oatmeal with any toppings that suite your taste. Enjoy!
