Sometimes a big pot of oatmeal for a small gathering just hits the spot. It’s easy to make a big batch of overnight steel cut oats then have lots of toppings to choose from. Set out a little oatmeal bar for everyone
to create their own individual bowls and all are happy.
Here are my
go-to toppings and combinations for my morning oats:
My favorite toppings:
jam or fresh fruit
nuts – walnuts, almonds or hazelnuts most often
seeds – flax seed, hemp seed or chia seeds
peanut butter or almond butter
steamed milk or almond milk
hazelnuts, dates and maple syrup
jam and coconut flakes
almond milk, dried apricots and almonds
peanut butter, honey and banana
How do you like your oats?
Love all those toppings. My favorite is almond butter and a nice jam…and sometimes with chia seeds for an extra crunch.
Love that platter!
I love the butter and jam combo. simple and soo good. I really enjoy making my oats flavor something familiar like toast or a muffin 🙂
For special occasions only: coconut flakes, almonds, almond milk and chocolate chips! Yum!
chocolate chips need to be added to my list!
Oh, I just love this idea!
Thanks Melissa 🙂 Hope you and your sweet girl are doing well!
I’ve never thought do an oatmeal bar for a large gathering- what a great idea!
Thanks friend 🙂
I remember the first time I stopped by a friends house unexpectedly in the morning. she made oatmeal and pulled out a ton of topping and add-ins. changed my life and oatmeal forever! My favorite is fresh blueberries, maple syrup and pecans (the same when I do breakfast quinoa with coconut milk!)
MMM blueberries with pecans and maple syrup sounds just lovely and especially with quinoa!!
Love the look of this! Oatmeal is one of my favourite breakfasts – so good with some mashed banana in it then topping it with pecans and banana slices! Yum!
MMM bananas and pecans – that’s a great combo!
Where do you live? Thanks for your oatmeal bar. I am doing a Cowboy Breakfast and an oatmeal bar is a healthy addition this year.
We live in Utah. Good luck with your breakfast!
