5 Favourite Hot Oatmeal Recipes

There’s a chill in the air.

Actually, that’s a lie because it’s quite warm outside as I write this post. I’m in a tank top and shorts right now! Hardly Fall temperatures, but then again it’s still summer for another week.

However, tomorrow morning is supposed to be a classic Fall morning- crisp, 8C, sunny, and full with promise. The promise of hot oatmeal. Cinnamon. Maybe stinky fuzzy slippers. That’s a perfect Fall morning to me.

I’ve been on a huge hot oatmeal kick these days. The other morning, I was busy working on a mushroom recipe challenge and Eric graciously offered to make me some oatmeal for breakfast. In other words, I begged him until he finally gave in. I love when men just offer to make things out of the blue like that, don’t you? ;)

I may have uttered the words, “I’m going to waste away to nothing” in a moment of desperation.

“Ok, but don’t blame me if it doesn’t taste good…” he said, slinking off to the kitchen with my Apple Pie Oatmeal recipe clutched in his hand. It wasn’t looking good.

And you know what?

IMG_1787

The oatmeal didn’t taste good either.

IMG_1788

It tasted like the best damn bowl of oatmeal I’ve ever had!!

Why does it always taste better when someone else makes it? Seriously, I need to know. He also sprinkled it with crunchy Sucanat which was genius. Or maybe he sprinkled it with pixy love dust! Needless to say, I gushed so much about this bowl of oatmeal Eric had a grin on his face the entire morning. He has now conquered his oatmeal-making fears. It was a win-win all around.

In honour of chilly mornings, here are my 5 favourite hot oatmeal recipes of all time. (in this case, “all-time” isn’t that long considering I used to hate hot oatmeal until 2010, but let’s just go with it.)

5) Comforting Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal 

This pumpkin oatmeal is like a warm hug on a cold morning. Or maybe I’m just lonely. Infused with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and vanilla extract, it’s like eating a slice of warm pumpkin pie in oatmeal form. I love topping it with a teaspoon of Earth Balance, pecans, and a drizzle of almond milk.

4) Sweet Potato Oatmeal Breakfast Casserole 

Last Winter, I was craving my favourite sweet potato casserole in a major way. The only snag? It was 7:15am. I looked at the sweet potato, it looked at me…I looked at it again. And I turned that craving into a delicious weekend breakfast.

3) Zucchini Bread Oatmeal

A sneaky way to get a serving of vegetables in your morning oatmeal. You can’t taste the zucchini, but it does a lovely job of bulking up this voluminous bowl of oatmeal.

2) Apple Pie Oatmeal

Even better when someone else makes it for you! It’s ok to beg sometimes.

IMG_9758_thumb

and my favourite bowl of hot oatmeal goes to…

1) Carrot Cake Oatmeal 

This one is for all the carrot cake fans out there! Creamy, crunchy, chewy, and sweet, this recipe packs in a full cup of carrots and a handful of healthy ingredients that will keep you feeling full for hours. It is quite a large portion, so I place the leftovers into the fridge and enjoy it as a snack the next day (it’s good cold too!).

IMG_6608

Strapped for time?

For an ‘instant’ bowl of hot oatmeal, just mix up a batch of Vegan Overnight Oats before bed and place it in the fridge. In the morning, heat it in the microwave for 60-90 seconds, add your toppings/sweetener, and go! No stove-top cooking required.

The overnight soaking softens and thickens the oats, similar to cooking, meaning that you don’t need to stir over a stove-top for 10 minutes. The consistency won’t be as creamy as it would be cooked on a stove-top, but it’s still a good substitute in a pinch. If you don’t want to use the microwave, you can just reheat it for a couple minutes on the stove-top too.

And if it’s still too warm where you are to enjoy a hot bowl of oats, you can try one of my 12 Vegan Overnight Oats recipes which are great on warmer mornings.

For some reason, I never get tempted to prep oatmeal for breakfast, but once I do (especially if it’s a nice variation like yours!), I never regret it!

Here’s something… On Friday, I am posting a recipe I concocted for French Toast Oatmeal, though it’s not vegan (due to egg).

I’m interested in trying out something savory as my husband doesn’t like sweet stuff at breakfast and I want to eat more oatmeal. Thoughts?

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) September 13, 2011 at 6:40 pm

Hey Michelle,

I loooove savoury oatmeal. I actually forgot about it until you mentioned it!
Here’s a post with an idea, although I eat it more of a lunch: http://ohsheglows.com/2010/03/03/youre-so-cheezy/

Reply

Michele September 13, 2011 at 6:59 pm

Thanks Angela! These look amazing. I can’t wait to try them.

Do you keep two different kinds of almond milk on hand? The one i get is vanilla flavored, but i haven’t tried the plain yet. Do you stick to plain or go for both or make your own? I have also been wondering about soy creamers – are these sweetened for coffee or are they a good replacement for half and half? Sorry for so many questions, I’m slow trying to wean myself off dairy and looking at options.

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) September 13, 2011 at 8:28 pm

Hey Michele, No worries about the questions, I like to help when I can!
When I first bought almond milk, I only bought vanilla, unsweetened. Then I realized that vanilla flavoured almond milk, didn’t always work in savoury ‘dinner’ type recipes.
So then I started buying original, unsweetened…and it’s not as good, but I have sort of been buying it ever since! I tend to always add vanilla in sweet recipes so it’s not a big deal. The only time I miss the flavour is in cold cereal or drinking it straight up.

Angela (Oh She Glows) September 13, 2011 at 8:29 pm

Oops I forgot to mention that I haven’t tried the soy creamers before, although I do know people who love them in coffee or tea!

Lindsay @ The Reluctant Runner September 13, 2011 at 6:50 pm

Carrot cake oatmeal is my favorite, too!! I never have all the ingredients on hand, so I make a sort of abbreviated version, but the other morning I was daydreaming about it and vow to follow your recipe exactly this year. I am so excited!

Angela (Oh She Glows) September 13, 2011 at 8:26 pm

I make a shortened version too, maybe I should post that along with the longer one. Thanks for the reminder!

Jillian September 13, 2011 at 6:51 pm

Amaaaazzzinggg post. Oatmeal is the love of my life – and your carrot cake oats have changed my world in a big, bad way. I microwave my overnight oats all the time on busy work days and I love them with a bit of maple syrup, natural peanut butter, and homemade granola on top. Delish. But nothing compares to the recipes you noted. Those are saved and enjoyed on days off :)

I second the call for banana bread or gingerbread oatmeal. I am drooling just thinking about all of this…

I’ve been wondering what to do with this season’s inaugural can o’ pumpkin, and that pumpkin pie oatmeal is just the ticket.

Maybe cinnamon bun oatmeal? I also really like the gingerbread idea someone else had. I love red velvet cake, but I think it would be pretty hard to translate that to oatmeal.

Michele September 13, 2011 at 7:00 pm

I love red velvet cake too. Beets could color it, but I have no idea how that would taste.

Honestly I love simple oatmeal with banana chunks mixed in and some walnuts sprinkled on top.

And I totally agree that when someone else cooks the food tastes amazing! I wonder if that is why Jason always wants me to cook dinner — it must taste so good to him!

Angela, I wasn’t sure where to post this comment but I wanted to let you know that I think your site is fantastic! I had been surfing around for a while trying to find sites to help me make the transition to vegan. I actually started a 6 week ‘trial’ today to see if this is a lifestyle change that I can sustain (giving up meat is not the issue – but I’ll certainly miss greek yogurt!).

I find your site really fun and informative and love your accounts of what worked and what didn’t – you clearly put a lot of effort into your dishes to get it just right.

So, tonight for my first official ‘vegan’ meal I cooked your Mushroom and Carmelized Onion Risotto and it was delicious – looking forward to leftovers tomorrow.

Thanks – I’ll definatley keep posted for new ideas and try out some other recipes.

Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga September 13, 2011 at 8:04 pm

Honestly me and oatmeal making goes like this:
1/3 c whole rolled oats + about 2/3 c water. Nuke in micro for 60 secs. Stir in a HEFTY does of cinny and brown sugar. Nuke again for 30 secs. Stir & wait 5 mins. Devour. It’s easy, it’s no fuss, and did I mention I love microwaves. Yes, I do. :)

But for those times when I am not pressed for time…your recipes make me want to dive in!!!!

I have been on a HUGE oatmeal kick lately.

I’ve been making regular oatmeal and then, at the last minute, adding a frozen banana (chopped) and peanut butter. The frozen banana really concentrates the flavor more than a fresh banana. So warm and comforting. Of course, my all time favorite is vanilla extract and pure maple syrup.

These recipes make me want to jump in a pile of leaves!

It is still too hot in my part of the world so for now I prefer my oatmeal cold or even almost frozen. There are a lot of things I love to add but one of my favorite combinations is with peach, cinnamon and sunflower seeds.

I hated oatmeal until about a year ago and now it is my favorite thing. I recently discovered that I LOVE soaked oats! Have you ever tried soaking your grains? I just started about a week ago and have to say that the taste is amazing. Plus my bowl of oats lasts me all the way to lunch now instead of being staved by 10 like I usually am!

Do you mean soaking like overnight oats?

Reply

Lindsey @ Why Just Eat September 13, 2011 at 11:08 pm

Sort of but you add an acidic agent to make the nutrients digestible in addition to just soaking them overnight. I add 1T whey to mine. Other options are lemon juice, yogurt (wonder if vegan yogurt alternatives would work?), keifer, buttermilk, etc. There is an excellent post about soaking grains here: http://www.kitchenstewardship.com/2009/11/30/soaking-whole-grains-why-do-it/

I love the transition of fall. I’ll love it more next year when I’m not also going back to school. Also a tip for oatmeal in the morning. Beth from Beth’s Journey posted an awesome technique to make steel cut oats the night before and than all you have to do is add your toppings and heat them up the next morning. I use it all winter as I much prefer the texture of them to regular oats. You can find the recipe here http://bethsjourney.com/heat-n-eat-steel-cut-oats/

I’m seriously obsessing about cherries and blueberries these days.
I’d love to get on with a warm oat recipe containing them, but unfortunatelly fresh blueberries tend to burst from the heat making the whole thing into a goey yuck-coloured mess. And i don’t enjoy the dried variety as much as the fresh or frozen…
As for cherries i need a large-ish tree to supply my need before i start mixing them with stuff…

I’ve started adding carrots to my oatmeals now because of your posts! Don’t have everything for your recipe though…so it’s usually just okay. I will have to try your pumpkin oatmeal this week. Made the pumpkin smoothie this morning for brekkie and was awesome!

Oatmeal w/ banana and PB is pretty awesome. Or if I’m feeling moody, a square of dark dark chocolate mixed in and melted.

Hi Angela! After a much needed trip to bulk barn the other day I made your go glo mix :) It was seriously to die for. I packed all of its goodness into a jar and gobbled up the leftovers!

As for my oatmeal choices it’s pretty simple anything with peanut butter and banana will do!
P.s. isn’t that the way it always works with men? I basically go around sniffing the lovely smelling house and singing my own version of the birthday song aloud every time my boyfriend uses the swifter :) Works like a charm.

I made your apple pie oatmeal multiple times this past winter… The spices (the addition of ginger is subtle but lovely!) really take it to the next level! And the walnuts on top provide the perfect amount of crunch. I don’t even like apple pie, but, needless to say, I’m a HUGE fan of that recipe. I’ll be trying the rest this fall and winter… Especially looking forward to trying the pumpkin pie oatmeal one!

Heh, I’ve been burned out on oats for awhile, but this is making my tummy grumble.

Since you like basing oatmeal off pies, here’s another few you might want to consider playing with some day:

– Rhubarb pie (sweet and tart, nom!)
– Boston Cream Pie
– An oatmeal version of that amaaaaazing pumpkin pie brownie thing you made. I made the pie for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. Would love to get a glimpse of it at breakfast without all the “desserty” effects.

That is so sweet your hubby made oats for you! EVERYTHING tastes better when someone else makes it. And does the dishes afterwards.
So far I have tried your apple pie oats (a staple in my house, it even got my 3 year old and 5 year old to eat oats!), pumpkin pie, and carrot cake. They are all divine. I work nights and it is very tempting to come home in the mornings and pig out on junk food. But I make overnight oats before I go to work at night and come home to a delicious bowl of oats! I rarely have coconut milk handy, is there a good substitute for it in the carrot cake oats?

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) September 14, 2011 at 4:38 pm

You can really use any non-dairy milk that you like (if that’s what you use). It will still turn out, but maybe not as creamy as the coconut milk version. You may have to reduce the liquid amount too.

Glad the oatmeal recipes are enjoyed!

It went from 95 degrees one day to 65 the next so it’s definitely “fall” where I’m at, but I’m still totally eating overnight oats. Although I have yet to find a good dairy-free alternative. I mix my oats with Greek yogurt and haven’t been able to find anything dairy-free and soy-free that is that thick. I wanted to try coconut yogurt, but it has xanthan gum in it which I also can’t have. Boo! I’m tempted to try to put coconut milk through cheesecloth to see if I can make my own “yogurt.”

Savory oatmeal: load up your cooking oatmeal with finely chopped veggies (I like frozen peas, shredded carrots, broccoli and shredded zucchini) few of your fav spices(I love smoked paprika, basil, and turmeric) and throw some cottage cheese in towards the end of cooking. Top it with eggs cooked your fav way and I never forget the hot sauce. Gives my oatmeal that extra protein I need and that keeps me really full.

Well there is another recipe and a favourite in Scotland. Normally used as a side dish but you can eat a bowl if you like as a meal, it’s delicious.

You will need pinhead oatmeal (not the flakes) just the ground oatmeal. For 1 cup add 1 small chopped onion and mix together with some oil (just enought to cover all the oatmeal).

Microwave on medium for about 5 minutes or to the consistency you prefer and until there is a nutty taste……stir a couple of times during cooking, add salt and that’s it done..perfect ‘skirlie’ as it is known.

I like to add it to bouled cabbage or mashed potatoes…yum!!!!! A dish you will use again and again.

Hi Angela. I just made your carrot cake oatmeal and it’s incredibly delicious!
I did have to substitute a few ingredients but will make it exactly as you did the next time. I love oatmeal but I pretty much make it the same everytime. So this was amazing. I will make all your top 5 asap. I’m excited to surprise my family with your recipes!
The subs I had to make were Rice Milk, instead of Almond and a little brown sugar because I’d used up my maple syrup the night before making a glaze for Brussel sprouts, which was delicious. I’m not a big comment person, but I just had to thank you for posting this recipe!
Warmly,
Melissa
