How To Jazz Up Your Oatmeal
Nothing’s better than starting your day with a warm bowl of delicious oatmeal. Oatmeal is a fantastic breakfast item as it is high in fiber and low in fat and cholesterol. However, eating the same kind of oatmeal every day can get boring. Here are ways in which you can jazz up your oatmeal so that you never get tired of this amazing breakfast food ever again!
Add Fresh Fruit
Adding fresh fruit to your oatmeal will result in much better flavoring than the fruit flavors found in instant oatmeal packs. You can add any type of fruit to your oatmeal. Whether you want fresh apples, berries, bananas, mangos, etc. on your oatmeal, you’ll be a lot happier with the fresh taste! You can also heat up the fruit on the stove and add some sugar and water to it. This will make a warm jam that will also be delicious to add to your oatmeal.
Add Honey or Brown Sugar
If you’re looking to add much more sweetness to your oatmeal then adding honey or brown sugar is your answer! Honey is a great addition to your oatmeal, especially over fresh fruit. When mixing brown sugar into oatmeal it easily dissolves and adds extra sweetness to each bite.
Use a Type of Milk Instead of Water
Oatmeal packs often tell you to add water to make your oatmeal. If you choose to add milk, almond milk, soy milk, or coconut milk, the oatmeal will become more hearty and have a richer taste!
Everyone knows adding spices to foods adds lots and lots of flavor so why would it be any different with oatmeal? Try adding cinnamon or nutmeg to your oatmeal for a sweet and spicy flavor. If it’s the fall, add pumpkin spice to it! Any kind of spice you like is most likely going to taste delicious on your oatmeal.
Add Chocolate Chips
Come on, who doesn’t want to add chocolate to their breakfast? Add a handful of chocolate chips to your oatmeal while it’s hot. The chocolate flavor mixed in with the oatmeal will give you a delicious and sweet breakfast, you can’t go wrong!
Add Some Nuts For Crunch
Put any of your favorite nuts on top of your oatmeal. Whether its walnuts, almonds, pistachios, hazelnuts, etc. you will get a delicious extra crunch to your bite! Nuts are great for oatmeal because they add extra vitamins as well as make the oatmeal more filling, keeping you full for longer.
