We don’t know about you, but we really love oatmeal. It makes for a cozy five-minute breakfast in winter months, and cold overnight oats are easy and refreshing in the summer (although, TBH, we mostly stick to hot oats all year). And we still can’t get over the fact that something so easy and inexpensive can be so satisfying.
That said, we know firsthand that eating the same bowl of oatmeal day in and day out can get a little tiresome. To keep from getting bored, you can flavor oats with different toppings depending on what you wake up craving. Or when you feel like taking things to the next level, you can plan ahead and whip up a pan of baked oatmeal to heat and eat for breakfast all week long.
Whether you’re a seasoned oatmeal pro or a relative newbie, ahead are some easy, clever ways to turn plain old oatmeal into a decadent breakfast treat. Try a few this week, and you may find you’re actually excited to jump out of bed in the morning.
