Sweet & Crunchy Oatmeal

by jenny sansouci on October 28, 2011

The weather is getting colder – that means it’s oatmeal time! I love a bowl of warm oatmeal for breakfast on a cold day. Yesterday I was cooking up some oatmeal and realized I didn’t have any of my normal oatmeal toppings on hand (usually sliced bananas, almond butter, or berries). I looked through the cabinet to see what I could add in, and created the perfect sweet & crunchy bowl!

Ingredients (per bowl of oatmeal):

  • Plain oatmeal (whatever kind of oats you like)
  • 2 dates, pits removed
  • Sprinkling of pumpkin seeds
  • Drizzle of maple syrup
  • Splash of almond milk
  • Sprinkling of cinnamon

Cook oatmeal as you normally would. Add it to a bowl.

Chop up the dates.

Add a splash of almond milk, a drizzle of maple syrup, the chopped dates, and the pumpkin seeds to your oatmeal. Top with cinnamon.

That’s it! Easy + delicious.

What’s your favorite oatmeal topping?
