Hot Oatmeal Cereal - Creative Combos

With our local paper come a little news magazine called American Profile; it's a lot like Parade which comes with bigger newspapers. Today's cover article is about Bob's Red Mill Grains and in a sidebar are eight ideas for making your morning oatmeal truly memorable. Don't they sound delicious? I look forward to trying every one of them.

Carrot Cake Oatmeal: grated fresh carrot, golden raisins, brown sugar, walnuts

Romancing the Bowl: Nutella, strawberry halves, whipped cream

Hang Loose: pineapple chunks, chopped macadamia nuts, flaked coconut

Oat Couture: dried cherries, whipped cream, creme fraiche, balsamic reduction

Peaches and Cream: sliced peaches, toasted pecans, heavy cream

The Camper: crumbled graham crackers, chocolate chips, mini marshmallows

The Gilgamesh: chopped dried dates, pistachios, honey, milk, ground cardamom (spelled incorrectly in the article)

Doctor's Orders: fresh blueberries, non-fat Greek yogurt, ground flaxseed

  1. Some great ideas. My kids only get oatmeal with applesauce and cinnamon mixed in. I'll have to blow their little minds and serve them up The Camper one of these days. Romancing the Bowl will probably go over quite well, too.
