Baked Banana Oatmeal
Recipe altered from here

OH MY GOODNESS! THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING THING I HAVE EVER HAD FOR BREAKFAST... well, it comes to an even tie with the vanilla and nutmeg risotto with fresh berries. This was fantastic. The banana flavour was SO amazingly intense in this oatmeal it's crazy. It's healthy, easy to make, barely takes any time, you can get ready while making it, and then when the timer goes off enjoy your sinfully delicious oatmeal. I don't have a single complaint about this oatmeal, except for the fact, when I put the ramekin into the oven I spilt a little of rice milk all over the bottom of the oven so it made for excitement... but that was completely my fault because I had a sudden quiver in my hand... bleh. Oh well, totally worth it. Unfortunately, I made this dish for my bf and my friend, and when I tried a bite of my bf's I didn't want to give it back. Even he was like "ugh, Sam, Jenna has some try some of her's!" He didn't want to give it away it tasted so good, this is a must must must try, especially for those busy mornings! Yummmmmmmyyy!

Ingredients:
  • 1 banana, chopped
  • ¾ cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup rice milk
  • Pinch cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • Dash of ginger
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • EVOO spray
  • Berries to top the oatmeal with, I used raspberries and blueberries
Directions:

Spray a small baking dish with EVOO spray. Lay bananas across bottom evenly. Spread the oats on top of the banana and pour the soy milk over that. Add your spices and vanilla. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Once you take out the oatmeal, spread your berries on top of the oatmeal.

Baked Oatmeal with Plums and Cinnamon

Apple Cinnamon Steel-Cut Oatmeal

Apple Cinnamon Steel-Cut Oatmeal

Recipe taken from here

Ingredients:
  • 2 tsp non-hydrogenated margarine
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1 1/2 cups hot water
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 cooking apple, diced
  • 1/4 cup soy milk
  • 1-2 tsp brown sugar (or regular sugar with a small drizzle of molasses)
  • 1 tiny pinch nutmeg

Directions:

Heat margarine in a small sauce pot that has a tight fitting lid. Add oats and toast them for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant. Add cinnamon and salt, stir well. Stir in hot water and bring to a brisk boil. Cover and turn down heat. After 15 minutes, add apple, milk, and sugar and stir. Cook for another 5 minutes uncovered, stirring occasionally.

If after 5 minutes you’d prefer your oatmeal to be thicker, cover and turn off heat and let sit for an additional 5-10 minutes. This gives the oats a chance to absorb more liquid without running the risk of burning the oatmeal. Also, the oatmeal at this point is approximately the temperature of magma, so you might as well let it cool down a bit before you dig in.

If you feel like dressing up your oatmeal, drizzle it with a small amount of molasses and a pinch of nutmeg, or sprinkle it with additional brown sugar, or add a fresh apple slice or two to the top.

Blueberry Oatmeal with Orange and Cinnamon

Blueberry Oatmeal with Orange and Cinnamon

Recipe taken from here

Ingredients:
  • 1⅓ cups water
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp mild honey
  • ⅔ cup rolled oats or oatmeal
  • ⅓ cup blueberries
  • ½ tsp orange zest
  • ½ cup milk
Directions:

Pour the water into a medium-size saucepan and bring it to a boil.

Add the salt, cinnamon, honey and oatmeal, then turn down the heat and let the mixture simmer uncovered for five minutes or until the oatmeal has absorbed most of the water.

Add the blueberries, orange zest and milk, and bring the oatmeal to a simmer. Simmer until the oatmeal thickens and the blueberries begin to burst (you’ll see purple splotches as evidence); it should take about five more minutes.

Let the oatmeal stand, covered, for five minutes before serving.

Hopefully this will give you some ideas for breakfast for a few ideas, enjoy :)
