hot new oats

So boy keeps asking to see my blog and I keep being like “… it’s pictures of new toppings I put on my oatmeal. It is really not exciting”.

So yes, this morning’s post is literally new toppings I put on my oatmeal, hahaha.

What is it about food blogs that makes that so interesting? I love other peoples’ oatmeal topping posts!

Today, into the pot went

leftover baked apple slices (about 1/4 an apple), chopped

raisins and craisins (probably 1.5 or 2 T total)

1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup plus a splash (for the dried fruit) water

After cooking, toppings were

1.5 T or so salty mixed nuts (peanuts, almonds, cashews) from trail mix

drizzle of cranapple butter!

Yum! We had a similar breakfast -- pumpkin oatmeal. I was surprised our kids ate as much as they did (and pleased). Will have to put some nuts in next time.

i love how everyone in the food blog world eats oatmeal!

I always put chopped up apples in mine after I've already cooked the oatmeal. I love the crunchiness.

I'm with you - I never thought outside the "banana and cinnamon box" when it came to oatmeal until I started reading food blogs! I love all the ways oatmeal can be prepared and enjoyed now! :)
