I’ve always wanted to like oatmeal but I never really knew how to make it and well honestly, I’ve never really liked it. I know it’s great for lowering cholesterol and fueling those long runs and workouts. So what’s a girl to do??
Well…Luckily I have a network of fabulous blogger friends who offered up a couple of their more basic recipes for me to test out. Let’s see what they came up with!
Nicole @ Fitful Focus (and today’s host) sent over this simple recipe with added peanut butter and jelly. Anything with pnb wins in my book! I am giving this one a try. Pb & J Oatmeal
Janet @ The Taste Space has a seasonal Whipped Banana Oatmeal with cranberry that looks easy enough and super tasty.
So “Doc in training” Farrah aka FairyBurger offers up an interesting addition of silky tofu to up the protein in her 5 ingredient protein Oatmeal bowl.
Suzy @ suzlyfe adds a little egg white into her Cherry Apple Pie Protein Oats to bump up the protein.
AnnMarie @ TheFitFoodieMama always knocks out of the park with her recipes and this Blueberry Oatmeal breakfast bake made in ramekin does not disappoint.
Jill @ JillConyers offers up her “overnight oats” with an Easy Afternoon Strawberry Oats
Morgan @ WildlyFit has a really creative combo of zucchini, peanut butter & chocolate. Sounds interesting! Chocolate Zucchini Oatmeal
Sam @ Pancake Warriors has you covered if you are looking for some almonds & coconut. Check out her Almond joy overnight oats
My friend, Kelli @ Destination Cortina eats her oatmeal at her desk each day or on the go. She suggests using plain unsweetened instant oatmeal & dressing it up with cinnamon, dried blueberries, bananas, pnb & almonds. Healthy options for the on the go! Thanks Kelli!
Hmm all these yummy recipes have me thinking it’s time to re try oatmeal again. Seems like a perfect fall breakfast to power me through my morning workout. Thanks to all of my friends for offering me such tasty looking options to test out over the next few weeks.
What looks good to you? Oatmeal lover?
