Oatmeal Toppings

The Best Oatmeal Toppings for an Oatmeal Bar

Written by Becky

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:
dried apricots
dried cherries
jam or fresh fruit
nuts – walnuts, almonds or hazelnuts most often
seeds – flax seed, hemp seed or chia seeds
coconut flakes
maple syrup
peanut butter or almond butter
steamed milk or almond milk

Best combos:
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?

  1. 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!)

  2. 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!

  3. 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.
