4 Easy, Tasty, Healthy Oatmeal Toppings- Hope you enjoy my favorites as much as I do!
Oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfast choices, especially as the cooler weather approaches. There’s no doubt about it- oatmeal is a nutritional powerhouse. It’s full of fiber, vitamins and minerals. And that’s not even to mention how it does such a great job of keeping you energized throughout the day.
Although oatmeal is great on it’s own, it really shines and can be even more nutritious with my 4 Easy, Tasty, Healthy Oatmeal Toppings. I love how oatmeal is a blank canvas and takes on the flavor of whatever yummy toppings you’re craving. You can even eat it hot or cold and with as many different extras mixed in, so get creative and go crazy. There’s no excuse for a boring bowl of oats!
Festive for Fall
This celebratory Fall bowl calls for about 1/4 cup pumpkin purée, 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice and chopped pecans. Cozying up with this Fall combo is an instant soul soother. Add a pumpkin spice latte on the side and you’ll be transported to the pumpkin patch of your dreams!
Start your day off with a filling breakfast that’s reminiscent of your childhood favorite. The simplicity of PB&J is not lost on this delicious bowl of oats. It might be super easy to throw in a dollop of peanut butter and spoonful of your favorite jelly into your oatmeal, but it’s oh so tasty too!
The rich and sweet flavor of banana bread infused into a healthy bowl of oats with a stir of 1/2 banana (mashed), 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and topped off with chopped pecans (or walnuts) and — even more banana!
When I wake up in the mood for dessert, I turn to this decadent bowl of oats. Sweet coconut and crunchy almonds, with just a hint of creamy chocolate. All swirled together in a deliciously warm and satisfying bowl of almost-instant oatmeal … mmmmmmm! Give everything a few minutes to melt together, and your decadent breakfast is ready.
To keep things super simple, I used Pacific Foods Oatmeal to create all of the deliciousness that you see pictured. Packed with protein, fiber and heart-healthy whole grains, this Organic Oatmeal is made by slow cooking steel-cut oats to maintain their homemade taste, hearty texture and nutrition. And with just 2 minutes of heat time, it’s ready before your coffee!
These breakfast bowls may appear fancy and time-consuming, but no siree Bob. Pacific Foods Organic Oatmeal is absolutely perfect for busy moms like myself. Oatmeal with a twist can be ready-to-go in less time and hassle than it takes to hit the drive-through and is 100 times more nutritious.
Something to think about….
