Oatmeal is one of my favorite things to make and eat in the morning. It’s simple, it’s hot and it’s versatile.
I’m always getting requests for more breakfast recipes for busy families, so here you go…basic oatmeal topped four different ways.
On a crazy morning, all you do is whip up one batch of your favorite oatmeal or steel cut oats and then each of your kiddos can top it any way they like. Perfect.
For this topping, I just placed a handful of shredded coconut and macadamia nuts in a clean, dry skillet and toasted them up about 2 minutes together. Then, sprinkle the toasted goodness on top of your oatmeal. Simple and done!
This topping is such a cinch! Just sprinkle a handful of butterscotch chips and walnut pieces on top of hot oatmeal. The chips will get all melty and delicious running through your breakfast. Love this!
A dash of cinnamon and a few sliced strawberries is all you need for this simple topping and then you’re out the door to start your day!
A handful full of blueberries and a little lemon zest…perfection. Lemon and blueberries were made for each other.
That’s it! Next time, don’t buy the flavored oatmeal…instead, buy the regular kind and then jazz up the toppings with your kiddos. Let them mix and match it any way they like.
