Outstanding Oatmeal For National Oatmeal Month

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.  

January is National Oatmeal month, and I am taking full advantage because there is nothing that I love more on a cold winter morning than to fill my belly with a warm and nutritious breakfast. I'll be honest here- I am NOT a morning person, so I tend stick with quick and easy breakfast solutions most days. I've been known to rip open some of those instant oatmeal packets on occasion, but really, they aren't that tasty and aren't very filling. On the weekend I will put a little more effort into breakfast prep though, and that's where I totally LOVE diving into a scrumptious bowl of Outstanding Oatmeal from Golden Blossom Honey.



Oatmeal Recipe


Packed with oats, apples, raisins and walnuts, it is definitely not lacking in flavor. The flavor beats those instant packets any day of the week! It is so filling, I don't worry about getting to lunch with a rumbling tummy! 

Ingredients

2 cups old-fashioned oats, cooked according to package directions

Apple Mixture:
1 cup apple juice
2 apples, finely chopped
2 Tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup raisins
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Topping:
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
1 1/2 Tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 cup nonfat vanilla yogurt

Directions

Apple Mixture:
Combine above ingredients and stir into hot oatmeal. Cover and warm over low heat 5 minutes until apples are soft. Meanwhile prepare topping.

Topping:
Toss walnuts with honey until coated.

To serve:
Spoon oatmeal into 4 bowls. Top with honey-coated nuts and yogurt.

Serves 4.

  5. Oh snap! I must tell my oatmeal eating kid that it is national oatmeal month. No kidding, he eats it every single day for breakfast and sometimes snacks in between. He loves it! He eats a scoop of peanut butter (crunchy) and a handful of sunflower seeds mixed it. If we have nutella he wants a scoop of that too.

  51. I just notice that January is the month for oatmeal :)..I usually eat oatmeal with veggies and tofu. I know it sounds weird but since I'm very careful with my sugar intake, I try cooking oatmeal with veggies like corn, carrots, peas, and greenbeans, mix it with tofu, garlic and onion and voilaaa..it tastes yummy :). But I bet your recipe is delicious. Bo will certainly devour it :)
