Blackberry Smoothie Oatmeal Bake


This baked oatmeal dish was inspired by a blackberry overnight oats recipe gone awry. I had blended blackberries, yogurt and almond milk together in a large smoothie blender intending to pour the mixture over oats (overnight, obviously). Well I did this one night and was not thrilled with the results the next morning. The mixture…

Red Velvet Warm Oats Bowl


I found a recipe for Red Velvet Energy Bites that I turned into Red Velvet Cookie Dough Bites with great success. So I assumed red velvet oatmeal would be as much of a success. It wasn’t. At least not at first pass. In all fairness, I should have seen it coming. I used the same…

Raspberries and Cream Warm Oats Bowl


I found raspberries for $1.50 (for 6 ounces) at the store this weekend and bought four containers thinking I would make a raspberry pie. Then I realized a few things. One, I have way too much to do to make a pie. Two, I have no tapioca. Three, nearly everyone I work with is on…

Chunky Monkey Warm Oats Bowl


Maybe you’re reading the title of this blog (and thinking back to my Warm Oats Bowl with Superfoods blog) and wondering… what the hell is the difference between a warm oats bowl and oatmeal? I like to think of warm oats bowls as oatmeal’s indulgent (yet still healthy) cousin. On weekends when I make these…

Warm Oats Bowl with Superfoods


I spent a week in Washington DC on business travel eating garbage. I don’t mean literal garbage, of course, but I did eat fast food nearly every night. No. It was every night. And it may have been “gourmet” fast food but it was fast food nonetheless. In fact, I ate Shake Shack twice! My…

Caramel Cashew Baked Oatmeal


Updated 9.15.2018 This is not Oatmeal. Those words were uttered (verbatim) by both my sister and my friend Monique after eating this oatmeal. I begged to differ but what can you do when the only two people you ask to try a dish both give the same review? All of my dessert/flavored baked oatmeal recipes…

Peanut Butter Banana Baked Oatmeal


Currently I’m obsessed with making and eating oatmeal, and I have to say … I’ve had worse obsessions (like brown butter anything). Last week I heard a coworker say he doesn’t really care for oatmeal. I scoffed at his remark, promptly went to the refrigerator, pulled out a container of my leftover oatmeal, heated it…

Baked Peanut Butter and Cranberry Oatmeal


I got the idea for this combination of oatmeal ingredients in part by observing my coworker eating dried cranberries with peanut butter at her desk. At least I think that’s what she was eating. ingredients. 1/2 c. butter, softened 1/4 c. white sugar 1/2  c. brown sugar 1/2 c. chunky peanut butter 2 eggs 1…

Baked Oatmeal


At first I thought this recipe was sorta like one big oatmeal cookie – that’s how the list of ingredients and directions initially read – which is not exactly what I was looking for in an oatmeal dish. I’ve labeled this recipe as ‘healthy eating’ mainly because of the rolled oats. You could make it…

This is another one of the recipes in Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day aka my new bread Bible.
