Oats are highly versatile, offering countless possibilities to get more taste and nutrition out of what we eat each day. I love to switch up the breakfast options I serve to the kids and oatmeal as my base makes it that much easier!

If you think about it, oats serve as a nutritious blank canvas. You can add whatever flavor profiles you have on hand to come up with a new culinary treat. In the mood for maple syrup? Go for it! Looking for more of a nutty vibe? Great! Crunch away. 

From savory to sweet, hot to cold, oats can provide goodness any time of day. You can even make them the night before and get ahead of your schedule. Truly a great tool to have in your home management belt.

Oats are naturally low in fat and sodium. They are also a good source of important vitamins and minerals, and a ½ cup serving of oats is a good source of fiber. 

Ways To Spruce Up This Hot Breakfast Option

If you’d like to spruce up this delicious morning breakfast option even more, consider the following ideas:

  • Chop up an additional apple and top fresh right before you serve to your family.
  • Top with a bit of butter or maple syrup for added sweetness.
  • You could always add an extra dash of cinnamon before eating.
  • Have extra nuts on hand? Toss in 3/4 cups of the chopped nuts of your choice and enjoy an added layer of crunch! It truly does make a delicious difference!

A ½ cup serving of oats is a good source of fiber and can help support a healthy digestive system. How would you get creative with your oatmeal? I would love to hear.

Curious about the difference between Instant, Quick, Steel And Old Fashioned Oats? Each variety of Quaker Oats are 100% whole grain. Per ½ cup serving they provide similar amounts of fiber, vitamins and minerals.

Ready to give this recipe a try? I used Old Fashioned Oats, but feel free to swap out with Steel oats if that’s all you have on hand.
