Slow Cooker PBJ Oatmeal – The Oatmeal for the Kid in You

pbjOats

This is a good oatmeal to add in to your oatmeal rotation. Just like a PBJ sandwich, it can always be made with basic pantry staples. I like strawberry jam, but feel free to use grape jelly or even orange marmalade if that’s your favorite. You can even get wacky and use almond or cashew butter in […]

I thought a yummy, moist coconut cake would be a great way to end Southern dessert oatmeal week. This is modeled after my favorite that has gooey white frosting on the outside, but a hint of lemon between the cake layers.

When nothing but something sweet will do, try some Hummingbird Cake Oatmeal. This is an old Southern cake favorite that has pineapple, banana, and pecans in the cake and is topped with a cream cheese icing. Obviously there’s no dairy in my oatmeal. Instead the icing we use is made from Vanilla So Delicious Coconut Yogurt, minced pineapple and […]

It’s day 7 of love your oatmeal week! This has some elements of the Almond Joy oatmeal, but this time we’ll be topping our oatmeal with a decadent pecan, coconut, caramel ‘icing’.

Welcome to day 5 of love your oatmeal week! I thought since it’s Friday I need to shake things up a little and make something slightly wacky and unexpected.  If Elvis had been a vegan this is how he would have started the day. This is a play on his favorite sandwich – a grilled peanut […]
